My name is Kirby. When I make coffee in a traditional coffee maker I usually end up waiting too long, and throwing away the remaining coffee along with the filter. Such a waste. Although the "DOSE" of joe generally makes me and my mason jar happy.
I have seen and used drip coffee and tea makers before, but they were usually plastic or aluminum, too big too small, or just didn't function well. I have been a product developer for eight years now and work closely with tool makers and ran the problem by them. My design was simple enough to prototype and I was surprised how well it worked. It was small enough to throw into my backpack for tea or coffee anywhere I liked. The prototype you see in the video is fully functional but I would still like to tweak the design. The finished "DOSE" will fit small and wide mason jars even better. I will also research exact size and number of filter holes for the perfect filter and flow (let that back and forth debate begin in comments). I need your help to pay for some custom stamp tools and make this a perfect fit for mason jars.
I love seeing an idea go from sketch... to prototype... to tool... to sample... to production... to finsih... like butter
Tails... off to recycling
I can not wait until, thanks to all of you, I am looking into a bag of "DOSE" final product. perfect, ready for distribution.
No plastic, No aluminum, Please leave a comment so I can take all of your feedback in to account from this Kickstarter.

Early Nov. Place order for boat loads of "DOSE"... inspect... ship... take a nap
Anytime I run into a developer telling me how easy a production will be, I laugh. I have been in the biz a long time and know that plenty can go wrong and get in the way. I already do a lot of tooling with stainless steel and know all the hurdles that I will need to get through this to make "DOSE" something that everyone will love. So CROWD, please fund me... I will Kickstart you a "DOSE" of coffee or tea just the way you want it. Oh yeah... they will be Shiny!
PS: Shiny is a relative term
PSS: Shiny is reliant on ambient light and will not occur near black holes
PSSS: Any increase in happiness may be due to Shinyness but also may be due to factors out of our control
PSSSS: Shinyness of "DOSE" may vary
DOSE is offered in this Kickstarter by Kirby not EcoJarz, Kirby will do all he can to make his design for "DOSE" as cool as all his designs for EcoJarz.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
