How this works
§ We need some $$$ so we can start our community coffee drive through.
§ Kickstarter allows people with great ideas a chance to execute them with help from supporters like you (i.e. a small Pledge) in exchange for some quality products.
§ Kickstarter will only charge your card and disburse the money to us if we reach the $8,500 goal by the deadline.
§ WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!
It's quick and easy:
STEP ONE: Sign into Kickstarter - just need an e-mail and create a password, that's it.
STEP TWO: Sign into Amazon (if you already have an account you're good to go).
STEP THREE: Kick us $5 or more and your card will only get charged once we reach our goal by the deadline! (And get some cool swag, see the list to the right!)
How Loveland Coffee got Started
It started with a question, "What do you really want to be when you grow up?" Not usually something you ask at 25 years of age but it was where the dream began. Beach’s response, “Owning a coffee house.” Ever since then it has been something we have been striving and reaching towards for the past eight years. Along the way we have come across great deals on equipment and have been saving all we can towards building and expanding this business.
For the past several years our business has consisted of selling & delivering locally roasted whole bean coffee directly to our customers. We have been able to succuessfully build our Brand and Market Presence in the Irmo/Columbia area. Around this time last year (June 2011) we thought a Kiosk would be a good option for our next step.
After spying a drive through kiosk for sale, we dived in to make this large purchase. This is our first step towards eventually opening a coffee house. As of right now, our town of Irmo does not have any local coffee houses, much less a drive through! How are the true coffee lovers supposed to get by? Well, we want to change things…and with your partnership it will happen. Soon busy people on the way to work can get some quality locally roasted coffee to start their day off right, mom’s out there don’t have to mess with all of those car seats for a treat for themselves and people can just sit back and enjoy the artisan crafted specialty coffee beverage that just isn’t another assembly line created drink, but an experience they will look forward to time and again.
What do we need money for?
So to make this happen the kiosk needs some TLC to get it fully running. So to free it from being in storage we need:
- A paint job & minor repairs
- Fresh and dirty water storage tanks
- Plumbing work
- Electrical work
- Menu boards
- Water pumps
- Filtration system
- City and county permits
Of course we have some fun swag for your partnership. Check them out on the right. (Sorry no international shipping.)
****BONUS OFFER**** for $250, $300, $350, $600, $1,000 Pledge Levels, sponsored by Turtle Creek Coffee (our Local Roaster).
Unlike canisters that lock the air inside with the contents, the AirScape is an innovative container that removes substance-eating air. The inner seal "pushes" all of the inner air out, while the outer lids seals the container air tight. Great for storing coffee, tea, brown sugar, cookies and much more.
The 32 oz French Press is constructed of double-walled, vacuum-insulated, 18/8 restaurant-grade stainless steel, this carafe will keep your coffee warm for several hours, all without "burning" it.
****Please remember that this is an all or nothing kind of deal… so we need to be fully funded to be able to get started - or you will not be charged and won’t get you your goodies :-( We love Irmo and want to connect and give back to our community!
