Today is special. After months of preparation — from running a successful Kickstarter campaign in the spring, to breaking ground on our subscription marketplace platform this summer, to shipping over 1,000 bags of coffee during our private beta this autumn — today, Crema.co is opening its doors to coffee drinkers across the USA.

10 years in the making

For me, it’s been a story long in the making. Some 10 years ago as a college student I spent a summer in Costa Rica, traversing coffee farms on remote mountainsides while talking to the farmers. I was struck by the care, attention, and effort that they exerted in cultivating their crop and stewarding the environment around them.

These visceral experiences stuck with me over the past decade. I’m enthused to now be working alongside Emily and Bryan, Leslie and Shawn, Guy and Dan, to help others experience these same sorts of connections with person and place, transforming coffee from a faceless commodity to a personal community along the way.
