Crema.co, a new startup that’s creating “the coffee marketplace of the future”, announced a Kickstarter campaign on Saturday at CoffeeCon in New York.
See http://Crema.co/kickstarter for more details.
Crema.co is an online marketplace for single-origin coffee. “It’s a place where coffee drinkers can go to buy freshly-roasted coffee directly from specialty roasters,” says Tyler Tate, the company’s founder, “You could think of it as an Etsy marketplace just for coffee.”
Crema.co’s trademark feature is the “Brewlist” — a coffee subscription with a twist. “The Brewlist is like a Netflix queue for coffee,” Tyler explains. “You add several coffees to your Brewlist, set a delivery frequency, and then receive the next item on your Brewlist each shipment. I think it’s the future of buying coffee online.”
Crema.co is focused on single-origin coffees and telling the coffee grower’s story. “I believe it’s important to promote the well-being of the people who actually grow the coffee,” Tyler says. “That’s why Crema.co is making it a priority to tell the coffee grower’s story through text, photographs and videos, and why we’re partnering with roasters who pay growers better-than-fair-trade prices.”
The deadline for the company’s Kickstarter campaign is April 4, 2015, and the fundraising goal is $25,000. Rewards range from a Crema.co coffee mug and stickers for a $10 pledge, to a year’s worth of coffee (delivered twice a month for 12 months) for a $450 pledge.
Crema.co is currently building their marketplace platform and plans to launch this summer.
The company is based in Boulder, Colorado and was founded earlier this year.
