Founded in 2019, Chamberlain Coffee markets a selection of sustainably sourced, organic coffee in single-serve bags, instant sticks, ground and whole bean options. The products are available online at chamberlaincoffee.com and Amazon.com, through digital delivery market Gopuff and in select retailers, including Erewhon and Sprouts Farmers Market. Additional offerings include matcha, hot chocolate and chocolate covered espresso beans.
In April, the brand added its first ready-to-drink offerings, available in mocha, cinnamon bun, vanilla and traditional cold-brew flavors, exclusively at Walmart locations. The canned cold-brew beverages are plant-based and formulated with almond milk, coconut cream and date syrup.
Additionally, the brand, described as a “modern, approachable and lighthearted take on the coffee industry,” has generated buzz through partnerships with Levi’s, Swoon, OffLimits Cereal and Nutpods.
“Growth and innovation is at the core of everything we do, and this fundraise will allow us to continue creating new products and grow our brand awareness,” said Christopher Gallant, chief executive officer of Chamberlain Coffee. “We’re extremely grateful to our returning investors for continuing to believe in the brand and the new ones who are coming on board, sharing in our vision for this next chapter at Chamberlain Coffee.”
The funding round was led by existing investors including Blazar Capital, Ms. Chamberlain and United Talent Agency, as well as new investors Volition Capital, Electric Feel Ventures, LA Libations and Noah Bremen. The company raised $7 million in Series A funding last year.“Creating a uniquely inviting coffee brand has been my dream for so long now, and having key investors back us allows us to build Chamberlain Coffee in ways that feel fresh and exciting,” Ms. Chamberlain said. “There are so many products I am eager to develop and projects I’m excited to get working on. With such an incredible team and group of investors I am more excited than ever to see what the future holds for Chamberlain Coffee.”
