So OK, technically this typical article isn’t about a business technology startup, but amazing work gets done with great coffee, plus it’s backed by Starbucks founder Howard Schultz so how could we resist?
In an exciting development, the Cumulus Coffee Company has announced the forthcoming launch of a groundbreaking solution that enables coffee enthusiasts to enjoy premium cold brew coffee within seconds from the comfort of their homes.
This announcement coincides with the company’s successful seed funding round, raising an impressive $20.3 million. Valor Siren Ventures and Valor Equity Partners led the funding, with notable participation from investors including Maveron, Howard Schultz, Linden Ventures, Carter Reum, and Ryan Tedder. The combination of cutting-edge technology and expertise in the art and science of coffee has paved the way for this significant advancement in cold coffee.
Elevating the Cold Coffee Experience
The Cumulus Coffee Company has introduced a cold brew machine, along with specialized coffee capsules, available for pre-order on their website, www.cumuluscoffee.com. This innovation is set to transform the way coffee lovers enjoy their favorite cold coffee beverages.
Howard Schultz, Chairman Emeritus of Starbucks, commented on this transformative shift in coffee preferences: “Coffee has experienced a significant shift over the past few years as consumers have overwhelmingly switched to cold versus hot coffee. Cumulus’ opportunity to bring premium cold coffee beverages to the home is simply enormous and will raise the bar for cold brew coffee everywhere.”
Mesh Gelman, the founder and CEO of The Cumulus Coffee Company, who previously held leadership roles at Starbucks for over six years, expressed his pride in this achievement: “Our team of experts across coffee, technology, and design has worked tirelessly to bring the sacred ritual of enjoying delicious, hand-crafted cold coffee into the home in a way that’s never been done before.”
Cutting-Edge Cold Brew Technology
Cumulus’ compact machine leverages groundbreaking technology and recyclable aluminum capsules to deliver a 10-ounce cold brew, nitro cold brew, and a pioneering cold-pressed espresso in under 45 seconds with a simple button press. This proprietary brewing process eliminates the need for ice, and the nitro cold brew is crafted without requiring a bulky nitrogen gas tank. Importantly, the coffee is never exposed to heat, preserving its smooth and nuanced flavor. Cumulus takes pride in sourcing and roasting its coffee beans and will offer a range of thoughtfully curated flavor profiles.
Jon Shulkin, Co-President of Valor Equity Partners and Fund Manager for Valor Siren Ventures, emphasized the potential of Cumulus’ product in the growing nitro cold brew coffee market: “The nitro cold brew coffee market is one of the fastest-growing segments in the coffee space. We believe that the Cumulus team, through many years of research, has created an exciting new product for nitro cold brew coffee drinkers.”

Along with the funding announcement, Cumulus Coffee officially launched pre-sales of its $599 countertop cold coffee brewing machine. According to the company, the machine can produce each of three drink types — still cold coffee, nitro cold coffee, or a espresso-like cold coffee — within seconds.
