About this project
There’s been more development in the coffee industry over the last ten years, than ever before. Even though so much energy has been put into better harvesting, better roasting and better brewing, when it comes to making iced coffee, you lose all of that hard work; quality roasted beans become generic, under extracted and often watered down.
That’s why we wanted to make a new way for you to drink iced coffee in your home. It’s called Coil, and without ever touching ice it can drop the temperature of your freshly made coffee from 210° to 48° in under 4 minutes.
Made of ceramic — Coil is a product built up of 4 pieces. The bottom container with a spout, the middle container which holds 9 feet of coiled quarter inch copper tubing and lastly the lid.
Coffee is at its best shortly after it's brewed. Coil allows you to drink it at its best even when it's cold. Using Coil is easy — all you need on hand are ice, water, and salt (optional). By pouring the hot coffee into the lid or brewing it directly into Coil, your fresh brew will pass through the copper tubing —which cools it down to as low as 48 degrees in under 4 minutes. You can then take the bottom part of Coil and pour yourself the instantly cooled cup of iced coffee.
We wanted to make sure that Coil was easy to use for two different groups of coffee drinkers — those with meticulous brewing methods and those who are content with less straining processes. That's why we made Coil work easily with a pour over method -or- by simply pouring your coffee into the lid. If you use a pour over — then your coffee will finish transitioning to being cold shortly after you're done brewing. If you prefer other brew methods — then you can pour directly into the lid for 3 minutes.
Coffee is at its best shortly after brewed. Before Coil, you were forced to make a cold cup of coffee in two basic ways: by brewing the coffee strong, then cooling it over ice, a process that diminishes it’s flavor and waters it down or by planning a day in advance and soaking the grounds for 12 hours.
Coil provides the best of both methods – iced coffee that can be made instantly – while at the same time preserving the integrity of the coffee.
As a backer you will have access to a gift certificate PDF that you can print, put into an envelope, and easily give to the coffee drinker on your list. Order Coil through Kickstarter and you will get 40% off the projected retail price. We will also number each unit exclusively for this campaign and all orders will be delivered by Spring 2015.
Risks and challenges
Coil is made in America and the cost to manufacture this product is high – so we need your help. If you order Coil now, you will receive 40% off the projected retail price. We will also number each unit exclusively for this campaign.
Another challenge is the fact that there isn't a product on the market like Coil — so we simply don't know if people are interested. We believe that it belongs, but we want to give people a chance to agree or disagree with us before we go down the rabbit hole.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
