Dear Backers - What do expect now?
We’ve said it already, but we can’t say it enough: Thank you for your part in pushing Santo Coffee Cubes into an official business. We’ll always be grateful that you saw us at our beginnings and supported us to make our dream a reality.
Although the Kickstarter emails promised a 24-hour turnaround to get those surveys to you, Kickstarter then explained to us that the email can’t be sent out until they are finished processing peoples’ cards. As some peoples’ cards don’t fulfill transactions quickly, it will actually take 7-8 days before we can send the surveys out. Everyone who pledged will get a survey and need to respond, even if you didn’t order a package that allows you to choose flavors. Your survey is your way to get to us your shipping address and information on "add ons" on additional pledges that you made. We can’t ship to you until you fill out the survey! (If you have not gotten any emails from Kickstarter yet, please check your spam/junk folder, as lots of people have been finding their correspondances there.) If you want to order more or you missed Santo Coffee Cubes, check here our last deals available.
But don’t worry! We ordered all the packaging and ingredients already and started production of cubes this week. We’re going to send you some pictures of the production process in our next update. We still plan to ship in 2-3 weeks, right on schedule as our production timeline states! Dream of hot Colombian coffee at all your Christmas parties. 😊
So, what’s next? We were invited by Indiegogo to create an account as one of their premier InDemand starter companies. Although Indiegogo is another crowdfunding platform, we are not using it that. Since we completed our Kickstarter campaign, we have the funds we need to produce cubes and begin the company officially, but having an account on Indiegogo allows people to continue to order until we get our website up.
We’ve already completed the first two goals we made as a company ($30,000 in less than 7 hours, and then $60,000 in one week), so our next goal as a company is to raise $150,000 total. With this money raised, we can bring our production headquarters (currently back in Colombia) here to the US—specifically to where I live in Florida.
We are so crazy thankful for you!
