Single-Serve Coffee Company is Elevating the Daily Routine with Delicious Steeped Coffee in Sustainable Packaging
SANTA CRUZ, CA, August 18, 2022 — Steeped Coffee, a Certified B Corp, and Benefit Corporation, announced today it has been added to the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America, for the first time. Out of the 5000 top companies, the disruptive single-serve coffee company is ranked 572 nationally, 88th in California, and 18th on the list for all of Food and Beverage, after experiencing a three-year revenue growth of 1,107%. Steeped Coffee may have been some coffee lovers’ best-kept secret, but as an impact-driven company using business for a change, Steeped Coffee now joins companies like Patagonia, Chobani, and Under Armour, who have also gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000 list.
“The Steeped Coffee team is proud to stand alongside the nation’s most successful independent brands and elite entrepreneurs, recognized by Inc. for what we’ve accomplished so far,” said Josh Wilbur, Founder, and CEO of Steeped Coffee. “Not only is it a tremendous honor, but it also highlights just how important it is for our industry to reimagine single-serve coffee as a sustainable daily ritual that avoids long-term impact on the planet, instead delivering a delicious cup of fresh coffee in minutes with no machines required.”
The company has partnered with over 400 of the nation’s top coffee roasters and brands, making specialty coffee more accessible to coffee lovers everywhere. Prepared similar to tea, Steeped Coffee’s proprietary brewing method and certified compostable packaging were awarded ‘Best New Product’ honors at the 2021 NEXTY Awards, the 2021 KeHE Summer On Trends® Show, and the 2019 Specialty Coffee Expo — key industry events in North America. This summer, Steeped Coffee completed a highly successful $5M Republic crowdfunding campaign, attracting more than 4,500 investors and selling out in less than 48 hours.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
