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.

YOSEF'S ROAST


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.

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.

Limited Release

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.

Signature Blends

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.

Single Origin

Our single origins are sourced from one specific grower, crop, and region, with an emphasis placed on the relationship to the farmer and the story that comes with it.

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.
