Wandering Bear

Matt Bachmann ’15BUS and Ben Gordon ’15BUS met when they each arrived to class carrying mason jars of homemade cold brew coffee — their shared passion eventually turned into a business partnership that set the two on a course to change the way iced coffee is consumed at home and at work.

Wandering Bear Coffee is first-to-market with innovative packaging that conveniently brings cafe-style, cold brew coffee to consumers in their homes and offices — their focus is on building a unique consumer beverage brand by better-serving the home and office consumption points. Like boxed wine (but better), their exceptionally bold cold brew coffee is always fresh and “on tap” in any refrigerator.

The NYC-based beverage startup launched in mid-2014, quickly attracting partners like FreshDirect, Murray’s Cheese Shop and Barry’s Bootcamp to their mission. It’s just the beginning. Join founders Matt and Ben on their journey.
