YOSEF'S ROAST is a collaboration that started on a farm in Colombia and was finalized by the leadership of both Appalachian State University and Knowledge Perk (which is co-owned by an App State alum!). Knowledge Perk's core values of Coffee Innovation, Flourishing Community and Better World, align so well with the App State community that the collaboration was destined to happen. All YOSEF'S ROAST have been specifically designed for App Alumni, Students and Faculty to offer you a coffee that is both ethical and exceptional, and to be enjoyed by a community that loves the Black and Gold.
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.
Our limited releases focus on coffee from the top lots we can find in a single origin, with an emphasis on high coffee scores and an unmatched taste. Our limited release comes and go in smaller batches and are typically a one-time offering.
KP blends are different single origins blended together creating a taste unique to knowledge perk. In keeping to our entrepreneurial roots, our blends are signified by words that have a meaning specific to that blend and is also frequently used in startups.
