How Blue Bottle Went From A Coffee Cart To A $700MM Valuation

Blue Bottle Coffee offers drip coffee that costs roughly $5 per cup at more than 75 cafe locations around the world. The company touts its high-quality single-origin, freshly roasted artisanal beans. Based on Nestle’s 2017 purchase of a majority stake in Blue Bottle the latter has a valuation of more than $700 million.

Freeman felt that most retail coffee chains over-roasted their beans.
