Canadian company Dispatch Coffee has raised CAD 1.26 million ($958k approx.) in a seed funding round to grow its coffee subscription service nationally.
Founded in 2012, Dispatch was reportedly Montreal’s first cold brew delivery service, subsequently expanding to open a number of cafés.
In 2019, the company launched its e-commerce and flexible/personalised subscription services, providing customers with the beans, tools, and know-how to brew ‘barista-level’ coffee at home.
The brand says that it responsibly sources its coffee, claiming that its vertically-integrated approach and direct-to-consumer focus enables it to deliver lower prices to consumers and a fairer return to farmers.
