The idea of the Therma cup came about my need for an insulated coffee cup that did not taint my drink like plastic and steel cups do. I discovered there are a few ceramic insulated cups on the market but they were either too small for a standard takeaway coffee or did not insulate effectively. So I set about designing my own cup.
The Therma cup is a ceramic cup that keeps your drink warm without tainting the flavour.
Your beverage will remain warm, above 45°C, for up to one hour. The Therma cup is 8oz so you can fill your cup from your favourite specialty coffee shop without using those non recyclable takeaway cups.
I am an independent designer and I get them manufactured for me by a small family run pottery in Stoke on Trent.
I launched the Therma Cup a couple of years ago via a successful kickstarter campaign. The cup has since developed a following among coffee aficionados within the UK.
I have now committed to producing the Therma Cup in three different colours: yellow, grey and blue. This is your opportunity to get your hands on the first batch for a special launch price, with free UK delivery and discounted International shipping. The cups are being produced now, so i can guarantee Christmas delivery.
Dimensions: 90 mm top diameter 65 mm base diameter 115 mm tall
Both cup and lid are dishwasher safe
Risks and challenges
I have several years of experience of designing my own products and putting them into production. I have learnt to manage risk and expectations and try to plan for any problems before they happen.
I have been producing the Therma cup for almost two years now and have over 500 happy customers. This batch is already in production, I have asked for a delivery date before the end of the Kickstarter and more stock that what is listed on my campaign.
Conformity to Spec
Ceramic production on a relatively complex shape is not easy or an exact science, there are quite a lot of variables so imperfections occur. There is sometimes a slight uneven wave to the outside shape, this may or may not be visible. This is due to the manufacturing process and it is not a mass produced piece of plastic. The feed back I have got from this has been positive with people liking the tactile feel of the cup,this is of course subjective.
The colours are new and the problems that I have encountered on the samples that I have used for the photography is that the pigment in the glaze around the rim of the cup seems to be a bit lighter than the rest of the body. From what I understand this again is part of the process and the glaze is still totally water tight. I personal like this affect and consider it to be a feature of the design, not a defect.
Production and Delivery
I have a good working relationship with my manufacture and he is only a couple of hours drive way. If i do encounter any problems I will fix them as soon as i can and communicate to my backers as soon as possible.
Any problems with the conformity to spec, the finish or delivery I will take full responsibility for and provide an appropriate refund or replacement.
