Have a question?
Any further timelines for the coffee filters?
Grant, do you have an update on the coffee mesh filters?
My Dunkfish arrived in the UK this morning. Many thanks, but i see it's still not complete . This has been one painful kickerstarter backed project.. Let's hope the tea will sooth ..
Hey Jonathan, thank you. Can't say I have tried pomegranate tea, sound awesome. Enjoy!
Hi Josh, thanks for the update and I am thrilled you like them.
My dunkfish has arrived :) Drinking some pomegranate tea right now. Fantastic work, Grant. Look forward to the coffee infuser.
My two dunkfish (dunkfishes?) arrived today. I haven't tried them out yet, but I have to say that they are really beautiful objects. I'm very glad I backed this project and I'm glad you persevered over all the production hassles. I very much appreciate how open you were with the difficulties in the process--I know it was a tremendous pain for you, but it was really educational to me.
It's nearing summer :) I would like my dunkfish...... please ?
Hey Daniel, We are about 35% through sending out the Dunkfish and will get the rest out ASAP.
Hi, I was wondering when we'll receive this....I still haven't gotten mine yet.
Hi Phil, Glad you like them and hope you enjoy your next cup-o tea.
Got my Dunkfish today! It's nice. As an engineer, I can appreciate the how well the basket fits into the sealing groove in the body. And the nice stiff rib cage should help prevent the basket from getting all crushed and bent (like all my other tea baskets over the years).
The packaging seemed pretty high quality too. Nice thick cardboard that stood on its own (or could be hung from a hook). Looking forward to my morning cup o' tea tomorrow. Nice work Grant.
Hi Janene, if you had told me a year ago that this project would take so long I would have laughed. The factory encountered a problem when production started and had to make some tooling changes. The stainless steel mesh kept crimping when running through the press at full speed. They have told me production will be completed before the 30th of this month.
Hey Grant.....update? we are almost at your 1 year later date since funding goal met. No doubt the production challenges were probably more than you bargained for!
Hi J, I just posted an update. Hopfully this answersall your questions. Thanks so much - Grant
Just checking in, would you be willing to send out a delivery update - I do see the comment below, but the last e-mail I received asked for shipping info and seemed to suggest that they would ship by mid November at the latest. I totally understand that you've had challenges but it would be helpful to feel up-to-date and like I know where things are at. I bet I'm not the only one wondering.
Hi Janene, production is underway as we speak. The raw material supplier took a little longer than scheduled to formulate the final material batch for production but I will have the first 1500 Dunkfish here very soon.
Any updates on delivery?
The coffee infuser mesh will be included with your Dunkfish. The tea tea infuser mesh is a transparent color of the Dunkfish body while the coffee mesh is a clear Tritan. This way it is easy to distinguish the two apart.
I saw that you are nearing the end of production/shipping. Any word on the coffee filter portion of this as well, as listed in the rewards section?
Hi Jane, We just did the first full test of the final production tools last week. There were some minor corrections which the factory has made to the tool. I am expecting to recieve final production pieces this week and will post images and an update as soon as I get them.
Anybody have any news on delivery???
I am reading your updates with fascination. Keep it up, can't wait to use your amazing piece of functional art.
My teacup is waiting on its own dunkfish. Mybe an update might help :)
Hey Grant, any new updates/info?
Hey Grant, any idea when those surveys will be coming out?
Congratulations Grant! Was there ever any doubt that you would make it :) Could luck with the future of the project.
May Dunkfish be the first of many fun and interesting projects that bring a smile to everyday things.
And many thanks to all those who contributed to making Dunkfish a reality. The KickStarter community shows that a joint effort by ordinary people with good intentions and interest in a dream can help the dreamer's vision become real.
Wow... someone jut tripped it, Congrats Grant!
Just upped my pledge again, let's make it happen!
I pledged $96 so that I get 4 dunkfish and 2 coffee baskets... is that cool?
I'd love to see this product made. I suspect that it might have a better seal than many of the tea infusers that I've used in the past. Fans of loose tea might really like this fun product. And tea stores might benefit from the drummed up interest in loose tea - it would make an awesome display.
Go Grant Go!
Thanks Derek, we're down to the wire now!!
Just upped my pledge again, wish I could go higher! (Not sure what I would do with 20 Dunkfish though)
7 hours for for $750... 210 backers raising their pledge by at least $5.00 would cover that.
Very cool idea, I was in need of one this weekend. Good luck!
Two more questions:
Are there any plans for multi colored fish in the future? Like your clownfish version at the beginning of the kickstart video.
Have you named your 4 current fish? IE: Bob, Chumley, Coral, Sirena...
Quick clarification: with the $90 pledge is it 4 dunkfish and 2 coffee baskets since the $48 pledge is 2 dunkfish and 1 coffee basket? Just want to clarify since the coffee option is huge for me!
Well done, love the idea and concept and hope it gets off the ground!
These are great!
