Coffee Joulies shipped to 500 Backers in 25 Countries
First of all, Dave and I would like to apologize for disappearing for the last few weeks. We've had our heads down in the trenches working on different issues and forgot to tell you all what's going on.
So what is going on? As of a week ago we successfully shipped a total of 703 sets and 87 thermoses to 500 backers in 25 different countries around the world. Now we are putting the finishing touches on a survey that will be sent to those 500 backers so we can collect feedback about the Coffee Joulies experience.
In the meantime Dave P has been working his ass off whipping the production line into shape. Some of the equipment that we've been using was purpose built to make Joulies and has started wearing out after being used 10,000 times, so he is working on repairing or replacing those parts, along with upgrading other pieces of tooling.
I, on the other hand, disappeared into the Nevada desert for a week for my first Burning Man experience on a quest for inspiration, meditation and recuperation after finishing hand-packing and shipping all those sets and mugs to the first 500 backers. I'm now in San Francisco until Sunday attending to the vehicles, possessions and relationships I abandoned when moving to upstate New York at the beginning of May. I'll be back in Sherrill Monday morning.
So when will you get your Coffee Joulies? Very soon. The production line is still running two shifts a day, Monday through Thursday, and product is piling up in its bubble-wrap packaging waiting for updated instruction sheets so they can head out the door to you.
While you're waiting please like us on http://www.facebook.com/coffeejoulies and follow us on http://twitter.com/#!/coffeejoulies since we will be transitioning to those as Kickstarter winds down. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
