Welcome to Knowledge Perk

A small-batch roastery with a mission to transform the way you experience coffee and the global community that brings it to you.

New Partnership with Educate2Envision International

Our Honduran Connection

In the mountains of Honduras, coffee, right behind bananas, is the top economic driver for a developing nation whose citizens face many economic and social challenges. More than 100,000 Honduran families are involved in coffee production, 95% are small scale farmers and many rely on family labor to make the business work. Knowledge Perk has a strong relationship with Honduras, our customers too. KP’s popular cold brew has its origins at Finca Mira Flores farm with fourth generation coffee farmer Joel Banegas. Finca Mira Flores is located in Los Planes, Comayagua region of south-central Honduras.

Knowledge Perk’s Honduras connection
is now even stronger

through a partnership with Educate2Envision International, which provides support to coffee farming communities in rural Honduras. The children of coffee producers in Honduras face many challenges when it comes to furthering their education after primary school. Dangerous or impassable roads, long distances, lack of transportation, and financial barriers make it very difficult for these children to get the education they need to be able to help their families and communities grow. E2E is an incredible organization that makes it possible for many of these children to get the advanced education they need.

Through our partnership with E2E we are funding projects in the Los Planes region.

These projects are selected by students in the school who identify opportunities to improve their own community. The most recent project was the completion of a concrete floor for an elderly coffee farmer living in poor conditions. More projects are planned that will help strengthen the community and impact these rural communities.

Flourishing Community, Better World.

Flourishing Community and Better World are two of the foundational tenets of Knowledge Perk. It is a unique honor to, in part, fulfill that mission by making a direct impact on coffee growing communities in regions where we source coffee beans. If you would like to join us in supporting this vision, you can make a donation on E2E's website and come by the Rock Hill or Fort Mill cafes to enjoy a cold brew.

OUR COFFEE

Knowledge perk strives to source the highest quality green coffee, through direct trade and reputable importers using fair trade and organic certifications. We focus both on the quality of coffee and our impact in the coffee growing communities.

THE COOLEST COFFEE SHOP WE HAVE EVER SEEN (having traveled to 30+ countries, it says a lot). They brew their own coffee and you can go watch as they work. Great coffee done as it should be.

Love this place. Best tasting coffee I've had out of many places I've tried in the Charlotte area. Highly recommend it. I go out of my way just to get a cup of coffee from them, love it!

Great atmosphere, great service, and seriously great coffee. These people know their beans, they know where they come from, they roast them in house, and know how to serve a mean cinnamon roll as well. Clean, refreshing atmosphere without feeling pretentious or fake, which is refreshing in the world of coffee today. Also love that they ship beans directly from their shop, so I can enjoy great locally roasted beans at home, too.
