Our Story

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.

About us

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 is currently running an equity crowdfunding campaign on SeedInvest.

How we got here

Once upon a time as a college student, Crema.co co-founder Tyler Tate spent a summer working with coffee farmers in Costa Rica, and was struck by the dedication and care they devoted to their art. For the next decade that spark smoldered while Tyler worked around the world as a designer and developer with data-driven startups like Nutshell CRM and Twigkit. In the spring of 2015, he ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to build the coffee marketplace of the future, and officially launched Crema.co in December 2015 after a 3-month private beta.

Coffee entrepreneur and storyteller Emily McIntyre joined as co-founder during the beta period, bringing her broad connections with the specialty coffee industry and her experience as a coffee journalist and marketer to the Crema.co story.

Founded in Seattle, we relocated to San Francisco in October 2016 when we were accepted into the 500 Startups accelerator program. We continue pursuing our mission to inspire and equip every coffee drinker, roaster, and farmer to live well—one cup at a time.
