Dispatch Coffee, a Canadian craft-coffee company, has secured an investment of C$1.26m ($958,532) in a seed funding round.

Anges Quebec, 0MC as well as few other private investors, joined the round.

Established in 2012, Dispatch is the first company in Montreal to offer cold-brew delivery service.

The company will use the funds to expand its brand presence outside Québec and increase its subscriber base across Canada.

Dispatch Coffee founder and CEO Chrissy Durcak said: “Retail was already changing pre-pandemic. Now, demand for e-commerce and home delivery is exponential.

“I think in challenging times like these, we’re looking for ways to stay connected, safe, and diversify the experience of being at home, I hope our service will add meaningful value to Canadians at this time, besides fantastic coffees at a fraction of the price, all our coffees are delivered with their sourcing stories and easy brewing recipes.

“We’re thrilled to have the support of this new group of investors and partners as we continue on our journey to bring better coffee to more Canadians.”

The company works with various coffee importing companies in the US and Europe focused on the speciality segment.

The company claims that it sources, roasts and delivers a responsibly-sourced coffee from farm to doorstep.

Last year the company also launched e-commerce and personalised subscription service, which allows its customers to access the beans, and tools, as well as know-how for brewing a barista-level coffee at home.
