The coffee roasting partner of Refuge Coffee Co. is Perc Coffee Roasters (Savannah, GA) — they have generously donated equipment to the #RefugeSweetAuburn location. (Editor’s note: Perc Coffee is arriving with its first retail location in Atlanta later this spring, and ACS hopes to be on sight to bring you the scoop).
Our amazing friends at @perccoffee generously donated all of our coffee equipment at #RefugeSweetAuburn - including this beautiful espresso machine 💛💛 Thank you Jared + everyone at PERC for your giant hearts! It won’t be long before Frey and the rest of the Refuge Crew will be slinging great espresso drinks from this beauty! ☕ Look for an announcement very SOON about our opening day and a grand opening celebration. 🎉 #perccoffee #savannahcoffeeshop #atlantacoffeeshop #coffeeroasters #espressomachine #baristas #sweetauburn #secondlocation #refugecoffeeco #createrefuge #openingsoon
