About this project
Project: We need funds to purchase costly specialty coffee equipment. This includes: a temperature controlled water tower for pour-over, a Kyoto Cold Drip coffee and tea system, a Siphon Vacuum Pot and Bonmac Hikari
Siphon Bar Table (heat lamps for siphons), a second espresso grinder to allow us to serve and do tastings for multiple types of espresso, Chemex, French Presses, and coffee cupping supplies. Additionally, we need funding to provide educational materials in the coffee shop as well as provide classes. Last, but not least, we need funds to purchase a sign for our building.
Christmas is coming up! Know a student? A coffee or tea lover? A local business enthusiast? Support a local small business and give the gift of coffee or tea to a loved one! Mugs, coffee, espresso and latte art lessons, so many good gift ideas.
Where: Grand Ave. in historic downtown Escondido CA.
Why: Commitment to quality, education, enjoyment. Escondido needs a coffee shop where you can sit and enjoy a selection of well prepared fresh roasted coffee and loose leaf teas. Kettle coffee and tea will be a place of tasting and learning in a warm community environment.
When: Very soon!
Kickstarters: We need your help to launch this concept! Help us get the equipment we need and to get the word out about Kettle. Support your local coffee shop by coming in the doors when it opens. Invite your friends and family as well. We are also offering some great incentives for our supporters. If we meet our goal, funding will be used to purchase the much needed equipment, supplies and signage needed to bring you quality coffee and tea.
Vision: Kettle Coffee and Tea will bring Escondido the best coffee and tea the world has to offer. We care about our customers, our community, and the communities we impact. We are partnering with world class, award winning roasters to do just that. Our roasters provide direct trade and fair trade coffee and roast each batch to order for Kettle Coffee and Tea. We are committed to properly training our staff in the best extraction methods so every cup of coffee we serve is the best possible product. Kettle will offer a large selection of premium loose leaf teas to impress our tea lovers. Our desire is also to use the best ingredients feasible to create a delicious food menu that will complement our drink menu at a comparable price point.
Risks and challenges
Meeting financial budgets, securing and setting up the space, and human resources all present challenges. We are grateful to have mentors and consultants from the coffee industry and the local business community to advise us and offer guidance in this endeavor.
