Wonder how Coffee Blocks tastes?
At Coffee Blocks we know that healthy fats are essential for building a strong foundation to start your day. We’ve created the easiest way to get these energy boosting fats into your diet.
Coffee Blocks are made with wholesome grass fed butter, organic coconut oil, free range egg yolks, and coffee. They’re individually packaged and frozen, just waiting for you to drop them into hot water.
Coffee Blocks are naturally gluten free, they have zero carbs, and are full of the essential fats your body needs to function. These fats are like rocket fuel for your brain.
Up until now, we've been making Coffee Blocks in a local kitchen. Now we have plans to start manufacturing them on a large scale.
We've got the whole supply chain lined up. We found the perfect manufacturing partner. Fulfillment is all setup so Coffee Blocks will arrive at your doorstep frozen in an insulated package.
Now we need the funding. We need you to back us and share our product.
Grass Fed Butter - The unsalted butter from grass fed cows is what gives Coffee Blocks it creamy texture & flavor. Butter slows the absorption of caffeine, giving you a longer energy boost and prevents the usual caffeine spike and crash. It helps with fat loss and is high in vitamins A, D, E, K2. It also has butyric fatty acids which is an anti-inflammatory.
Organic Coconut Oil - Coconut oil is a boost of instant energy & a fat burner. It supercharges brain function and fights viruses, bacteria, & fungi. Coconut oil helps build strong cell walls and regulates blood sugar and hormones. It gives Coffee Blocks a distinct flavor and even makes it seem sweet.
Organic Fair Trade Coffee - We found the perfect coffee to combine with the grass fed butter and coconut oil. Together, they make for the tastiest coffee drink we’ve ever had. Coffee has been shown to boost energy levels, brain function, and fat burning.
Free Range Egg Yolks - My mom always reminds me that “The eggs were let out of jail”, referencing the reversing of the myth that egg yolks and cholesterol are bad. Eggs add the essential texture to Coffee Blocks. They truly bring the whole thing together. Egg yolks contain choline and fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K.
Organic Vanilla - Vanilla contains vanilloids (a real thing, I promise), which reduce inflammation and activates the same receptors as capsaicin (chili peppers). The vanilla in Coffee Blocks enhances the flavors of the other ingredients, giving Coffee Blocks our distinct flavor.
Our background is in reality television casting and development, but in our heart, we are inventors. One of our main areas of invention and “hacking” is in health and fitness. As former high-level athletes, we’ve got a passion for working out harder and eating healthier.
One way we found to get more healthy fats in our diet, was Bulletproof Coffee. It’s a great idea, but it’s tough to make at work. So we hacked it and invented Coffee Blocks. A lot of the same benefits of Bulletproof Coffee, but way more convenient to make.
$35,000 will cover all the expenses to manufacturer and bring Coffee Blocks directly to you. This includes: - Ingredients (only the best, grass fed butter, organic) - Manufacturing the Coffee Blocks (covers the facility and employees) - Packaging Equipment & Supplies - FREE Frozen Shipping (yup, free shipping!) - Long Term Shelf Life Testing (we know they are good frozen for a while, but how long?)
Risks and challenges
Challenges: We’ve worked really hard this last year to work out all of the kinks in the system. We believe we’ve pushed through most of the big hurdles, but there might be more. We’ll keep you updated if we run into any. Here are some potential hurdles:
Ingredients: Because we use the best ingredients, they can sometimes be in limited supply. Grass Fed butter has been our biggest challenge to date. It turns out cows by near our manufacturer don’t eat grass during the winter, so we had to look elsewhere. Lucky for us, we’ve found a great source in Kerrygold Unsalted Butter.
Packaging Sealer: The sealer we will be using needs to be shipped from overseas. There is potential it could get held up in customs. This could delay our manufacturing date.
Supply Chain: We have planned to the best of our abilities to make sure everything is in place at the right time. But, if one thing falls behind schedule everything will.
Manufacturing Delays: We’ve already done a test day with our manufacturer and are pleased. But, this is a brand new product that has never been made at this scale. There is potential for mishaps and inefficiencies in the process.
Delays in Shipment: We have built a system that SHOULD scale with us no matter how successful we are. There are long distances for ingredients and final product to travel and that could cause unforeseen delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
