Cloud forests to office cubes, campfires to kitchen tables: coffee spans the world and touches millions of lives. At Crema.co, we firmly believe that coffee is a community, not a commodity, and we're on a mission to empower farmers, roasters, and coffee drinkers to truly live well.
Coffee marketplace Crema.co redefined home coffee drinking with its launch in December, 2015. Coffee drinkers can discover and subscribe to coffees from 20 of the best coffee roasters in the country with the help of Crema.co’s recommendation engine and producer-forward storytelling. Now, Crema.co’s Slack-integrated office coffee subscription delivers a superior coffee experience to teams across the country. With a vision to support coffee drinkers, roasters, and growers in their endeavor to live well, Crema.co makes a donation to Food4Farmers for each bag of coffee purchased through its platform. Founded in Seattle and now based in San Francisco, Crema.co is backed by 500 Startups and recently acquired by coffee entrepreneur Michael Klassen.
How we got here
Crema.co was conceived by designer, developer, and specialty coffee enthusiast Tyler Tate in 2015. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Crema.co entered a private beta period, while coffee entrepreneur and storyteller Emily McIntyre joined as co-founder. We're proud members of 500 Startups Batch 19 and think we've built the most fascinating coffee community anywhere.
Over the years much has changed for us, such as our recent move to Portland from San Francisco; Tyler has moved on to pursue other projects, and Emily stepped in as General Manager. Much has stayed the same too: we continue pursuing our mission to inspire and equip every coffee drinker, roaster, and farmer to live well—one cup at a time.
