About Sudden Coffee

At Sudden Coffee, we believe that a great cup of coffee can transform your day. Our mission is to make great coffee easier for everyone to experience in today’s busy world.

We created the world's first single origin instant coffee. It tastes like coffee made at a hipster cafe :-) Only possible by combining a deep expertise of coffee, chemical engineering, & industrial engineering.

Sudden Coffee was founded in San Francisco in 2015 by Kalle Freese, ranked 9th best barista in the world in 2015, & Josh Zloof, a McKinsey trained techie with a culinary obsession. Sudden Coffee has received accolades from customers & critics alike: New York Times, Food & Wine, CNBC, GQ. We were the 2nd food startup to be accepted into the Y Combinator accelerator program and we've raised over $4m in venture financing.

If you believe in meeting people at their level and are generally bullish on unicorns like our Head of Coffee, Umeko, you might be a good fit at Sudden. We’re looking for passionate team members to help democratize a new wave of coffee.
