CoffeeCup Software is an American computer software development company based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States founded in 1996. The name comes from the company’s origins in an internet cafe owned by its founder.
The company currently creates over 25 software applications for creating, designing, and editing websites and a number of online services for webmasters. The company’s third product, CoffeeCup Direct FTP, was the first FTP program to incorporate text editing functionality directly into the interface in a “split screen” fashion.
CoffeeCup employs just over 20 programmers and designers and moved to new headquarters in the spring of 2007. In addition to a panel of user-advisers, CoffeeCup has a group of around 8000 â€œAmbassadorsâ€ who are invited to test drive new and existing software programs and report bugs and offer suggestions for improvements.
CoffeeCup’s Software has won many awards, including the Shareware Industry Award six years running for the CoffeeCup HTML Editor. Other awards include being ranked #400 in the Interactive 500, 11 CNet Editors Choice Awards, 18 Tucows 5-Star Awards, and ZDNet Best Pick for Web Design Software.
