The Investment

Flash Coffee aims to digitize and democratize access to premium coffee across Southeast Asia and beyond.

Co-founders, David Brunier and Sebastian Hannecker, launched their trend-setting brand in late 2019 with the goal to bring their passion for coffee to a wider audience. They have been sharply focused on quality, sourcing premium Arabica beans and enlisting award-winning baristas to devise their menu, as well as affordability, through their efficient grab-and-go store model.

Flash Coffee’s consumer mobile app and active online presence brings an entirely digital, streamlined experience to Asia’s young and rapidly growing middle-class who have an increasing appetite for coffee. Currently operating in Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand, and quickly expanding to 7 other core markets across APAC, Flash Coffee is focused on launching stores in new markets and we look forward to supporting their expansion across the region.
