We've loved every minute of our journey
Crema Coffee House was born out of the desire to be part of the emerging Tourism Industry that would boost the image of Nigeria globally. In addition to providing our clients with mouth watering treats, in collaboration with our sister company Carmel & Goddard Ltd also run by our founder, we will be providing the industry with excellently trained service personnel.

Our first employee
Crema Coffee House-Bakery/Café/Creamery started off in Vancouver in November 2015 as Crema Homemade through the encouragement and support by the Nimmyel Clan with Isabel driving sales and marketing. Our first major contract to supply three hundred cookies was through her effort promoting Crema to her friends and teachers at school.
