About

I'm raising funds to bring "My Caffe Affare" Cold Coffee Brew System into production. I've trademarked the name, filing a design patent and have produced a working prototype to demonstrate the project. I have technical manufacturing CAD drawings, in discussions with several different manufacturers on various production techniques to have best  costing of manufacturing of final product. We need your help as I need to have inventory in place to sell to consumers. 

My project began when the top selling cold brew coffee system I used to produce my cold brew coffee extract cracked next to the rubber stopper in the bottom of the brew system used to drain the extract. I lost half of my extract, I cleaned up the mess made my cup of cold brewed coffee walked into our den and sat down with my wife to enjoy my coffee. I  started to complain to my wife that I could not believe they haven't improved the quality and design of their system since 1964. My wife looked over to me and said, "I thought as a product developer that is what you do, you make things better!" My response, "you're right Darlin', I can solve this problem. I promise to not only it not only will be a better system, it will look good on your kitchen counter." i have created several prototypes until I reached the latest version. I polled friends and also strangers for their opinion of the system. I was totally surprised by the overwhelming response was great product, can't wait to try it after it comes to market. I have invested over $50,000 dollars into this project and now it is time to bring it to reality.  I want to thank you for taking time to review my project  and your support in my effort. 

Risks and challenges

As with any business there are risks bringing a new product to market. My past experience, success in product development and manufacturing gives me an advantage. We are entering into the fastest growing segment of coffee consumption using cold water coffee brewing systems. Many have jumped into the market without much thought of design and quality other than to capitalize on the trending of cold brew coffee. We have a Amazon store reserved to sell all of the products to be associated with My Caffe Affare trough there and other retail outlets once in production. We plan to apply for a Good House Keeping Seal of approval once the product is in production.

I have been brewing cold brew coffee for over 40 years, using the top selling systems. I have used them looked for the problems most often encountered with each one. This design addresses those problems and flaws in design and use. I have been successful in bringing other products to market to include medical devices, forensics, safety apparel for outdoorsmen, dealing with the US and European Patent offices, the FDA and I never ever give up on a project when there is a need for it. My Caffe Affare addresses 4 of the top 6 reasons people purchase a product. 1. Quality 2. Green 3. Healthy 4. No waste.
