Chamberlain Coffee, the brainchild of YouTube celebrity Emma Chamberlain, has announced the closing of its $7 million Series A funding round to support expansion and new product development.
The brand, founded in 2019, offers a selection of sustainably sourced, organic coffee in single-serve bags, instant sticks, ground and whole bean options. Additional products include its top-selling Matcha, Cocoa Grizzly Hot Chocolate and recently launched Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans.
The funding round was led by venture builder Blazar Capital. Among the investors in Chamberlain Coffee are Ole Kristoffersen and Steen Skallebaek, the founders of Ole & Steen, a Danish bakery making its mark in Manhattan in addition to having more than 100 locations in Denmark and the United Kingdom. Other investors include Brandon Brown, Nik Sharma and Ken Sadowsky.
“Chamberlain Coffee has grown exponentially since its inception, and this is only the beginning. In finding a group of investors for the brand who believe in and share our vision, we know Chamberlain Coffee will reach new heights and become the go-to coffee brand of this generation,” says Chamberlain Coffee chief executive officer Christopher Gallant.
Recent launches of Chamberlain Coffee include Los Angeles hot-spot Erewhon, national grocer Sprouts and digital delivery market Gopuff along with partnerships with top brands like Levi’s, Swoon, OffLimits Cereal and Nutpods. The brand touts its modern, approachable and lighthearted take on the coffee industry, allowing fans to grow and evolve through each new launch and collaboration.
“I created Chamberlain Coffee out of my passion for coffee and the community that surrounds it. I am still in awe of how many people share that same passion and have fallen in love with our products,” says Chamberlain Coffee founder and investor Emma Chamberlain. “To be able to grow this business, launch new products and work in this space every day is a dream come true. I am so thankful that we have been able to grow Chamberlain Coffee into the brand I dreamed it to be, and I can't wait for what the future holds.”
