Jibby Coffee ☕️

but first, CBD coffee

setting the scene

  • you wake up at 6am and pound a cold brew to fight exhaustion ☕️
  • still fatigued, you hit your local coffee shop on the way to work ☕️☕️
  • you struggle to resist the office coffee machine and take an espresso shot to prepare for your busy morning ☕️☕️☕️
  • at your 9am meeting, you find your hands shaking, head spinning, and heart rate accelerating 🤯
  • this week’s company makes coffee that provides a caffeine fill while making drinkers feel productive, clear, and mentally sound

due diligence

what we like

  • 💥 caffeinated markets: the global ready to drink coffee market was estimated at $26.3b in 2022 (growing 8.3%), and the CBD beverage market was valued at $3.2b in 2022 (growing 28.7%)
  • 💨 tailwinds: the diversifying CBD industry, preferences for low-cal, low-sugar drinks, and the evolution of coffee culture presents Jibby with a promising market opportunity
  • 🚀 product expansion: the company has the potential to expand to new formats (beans, pods, and powders) and ingredients that address different functions 

potential risks

  • 📚 safe for work: while CBD has been readily adopted for its health benefits, Jibby must assure consumers that drinking cannabidiol is legal, healthy, and safe   
  • 👮🏽 regulation: despite legislation from Congress, FDA regulation may raise investor concern and prevent Jibby from effectively marketing the product
  • 🛒 shelf space: Jibby competes with ready to drink coffee, CBD drinks, and functional beverages for competitive shelf space
