Steamm: Authentic Espresso in a Bottle
Home / Podcast / Episodes / Steamm: Espresso in a Bottle

Today, we are joined by Kevin Newsum, CEO of the bottled espresso company Steamm.
Steamm is a revolutionary coffee company, being the first organisation to ever provide real, quality espresso that’s bottled up and ready to drink.
Kevin explains to us how the coffee is made and the different procedures they have to go through in order to maintain quality and safety. 
With the pandemic causing problems for almost everyone, nothing’s different for Kevin. 
He lets us in on how he’s pivoted Steamm’s business model and how he’s coping, being stuck at home with his young children. 
”We want to honour your coffee ritual, we want to bring you something that’s authentic.” – Kevin Newsum
