Swiss Army Knife® is not affiliated with and does not support the CajunCoffeePress.
The CajunCoffeePress is the only coffee and tea brewer which allows you to use any one of these single cup brewing pods or your favorite ground coffee, to brew an amazing cup, without using expensive machines.
This is where the creativity comes in. You are no longer locked into one machine or process. Below are the main brewing categories; however, you are in control of time, amount of water, temperature of water, type and amount of coffee. The number of combinations is up to you!
Keurig Vue®, K-Cup®, Rivo®, CBTL®, Starbucks® Verisimo™, Nescafe® Dolce Gusto®, Coffee Pods, and Nespresso® (To Include Refillable Cups)
Place chamber on mug and add coffee, pour water in, allow coffee to brew, use plunger to push fresh brewed coffee into your mug! Enjoy!
(Very Stable and Designed to Brew an Amazing Cup this way)!
Place plunger in chamber and invert, add coffee, pour water in, allow coffee to brew, place filter cap on top and use the chamber to press the fresh brewed coffee up into the filter cap to capture a creamy rich top and oils, pour into your mug, finish the press and Enjoy!
Use the bottom of the Universal Cap and place a micro filter in it, fill with your favorite coffee, place on top of your mug, pour the water over the grounds and slow drip a great cup of coffee! Enjoy!
A little history about me and how the project came about:
I was born and raised in Louisiana; I have a Bachelor of Science in Aviation and A Masters of Aerospace in Aviation Education Technologies and Space Studies. I have worked for and with many engineering firms in the industrial sector, and after 26 years in the military; I know how to get things done.
There are many things I love about Louisiana; but one of them is the coffee culture. We love great coffee in Louisiana and it is one of my passions. For those of you wondering where the name Cajun comes in; Cajuns are known for being creative and engineering solutions to problems that are simple and effective!
A couple of years ago I started using single serve coffee pods. Like most of us, I loved the convenience and cleanliness. The single brewing machines are great; however, they are not portable! I was already buying the single serve cups, why couldn’t I take them with me when I traveled. I would bring my own coffee and filters or be forced to use that 4 cup wonder coffee maker in the hotel rooms, or get up early and find the nearest coffee shop.
Then it hit me, why can’t I make a simple portable manual brewer that will travel with me and I can use the single cups I love….so I did. I spent many hours researching and trying different methods and products on the market….nothing I could find was as versatile and portable as I wanted it to be.
I wanted to create a COFFEE AND TEA BREWING TOOL that was also a work of art, one that would support how I wanted my coffee, whether it was pressed, dripped, cold brewed or a quick on the go good cup, my way! And most importantly, it had to be easy to use!
Two years later, here it is, the CajunCoffeePress!
Problem Solved, now when I travel I can start the day off right! Cajun Engineering at its best!
A simple and effective solution that solves the problem of having to buy multiple coffee brewers and spend thousands of dollars or wake up to bad coffee, and it brews great teas as well!
From initial idea almost three years ago, I have researched coffee brewers and processes that extract the best product from great coffee or tea. I have looked at many downsides or shortcoming of these brewers on the market today and solved the shortfalls of each to be incorporated into the CajunCoffeePress. Multiple drawings and concepts were vetted to produce a design that could cover multiple brewing processes and perform exceptionally well. The biggest plus to the CajunCoffeePress is the control you have in all the different methods. Finally, we are ready for the next step!
We are teamed up with a major U.S. Production Company and plan on producing the products here in the U.S.
Today, we currently have a working prototype and are making refinements to the design.
In order to make the CajunCoffeePress so universal there are multiple parts.The plunger, chamber, filter cap and universal cap.Currently we are working with the tooling engineers and designing each to be efficient and effective in production.Once we reach our goal the short run production models will be produced to verify fit, form and function.CCP Team One and our team will test and gather feedback for any last minute refinements.After all has been verified, the order to produce the tooling required for ejection molding will be given and 30 days later the tooling will be complete and full production will commence.We have programmed enough lead time in, to compensate any tooling or production setbacks.
AUG-SEP - We will conduct a design check and produce a short-run production model (this is where the CCP TEAM ONE comes in). After local market and Team One's feedback is received,
SEP – OCT - We will move forward into tooling and production.
OCT – NOV - The amazing CajunCoffeePress will be in your hands by the end of November.
Without your pledge we could not meet our goal and the CajunCoffeePress make take years to get to market!
Please select a pledge that you are most comfortable with and pledge away! Let's make sure all coffee and tea lovers have a Merry Christmas and great coffee and tea for years to come!
I ask that each of you help spread the word to all of your friends, family, and fellow coffee/tea lovers!
This is truly an amazing product you will be asking yourself how you ever got along without it, and I can't wait to share it with you!
All amounts cover domestic shipping and each CCP Coffee Hero will be recognized on the CajunCoffeePress website on the Hero Page!
****UPDATE**** Shipping to Canada is only an additional $10.00!!! If you have already pledged and added the $20.00, I will rebate you $10.00!
CajunCoffeePress will host a Kickoff Dinner to honor our Platinum and above backers. There will be a gourmet dinner, music, and a chance to personally thank CCP Heroes! The dinner will be held in San Diego at an amazing venue to be announced as we get closer. Unfortunately transportation is not included. We look forward to reaching or exceeding our goal to make the CajunCoffeePress a reality for everyone!
Today we have our working prototype! We are finalizing the design and are poised with a major U.S. manufacturer to go into production. Once we reach our funding goal the wheels move into overdrive to get the CajunCoffeePress in your hands by the end of November. As soon as we have the funding, the short run production models will be produced and sent to CCP Team One! Once Team One has submitted their feedback, we move to tooling.
In order to make the CajunCoffeePress so universal there are multiple parts. The plunger, chamber, filter cap and universal cap. Currently we are working with the tooling engineers and designing each to be efficient and effective in production. Once we reach our goal the short run production models will be produced to verify fit, form and function. CCP Team One and our team will test and gather feedback for any last minute refinements. After all has been verified, the order to produce the tooling required for ejection molding will be given and 30 days later the tooling will be complete and full production will commence. We have programmed enough lead time in, to compensate any tooling or production setbacks. As any good project manager would do, we have alternate manufactures as backups. Our supply and logistics team has a combined 80 years of industry experience and we are ready for any contingency!
We are ready to make the CajunCoffeePress a reality and change the portable single cup industry. Join us and help spread the word about the CajunCoffeePress!
Thank you for your trust, time, and support!
Yes the CajunCoffeePress will be BPA Free!
Building tooling for injection molding is expensive. The CajunCoffeePress will need 7 piece of tooling, gaskets, and spears to make it all work. Building a coffee brewer that only does one or two things is cheap and easy. Designing a product that can replace so many brewing methods in one portable device required multiple parts. We did not want to place a low goal and disappoint our backers by not being able to deliver the product in the end! At the lowest pledge we only need 3500 of the millions of coffee and tea lovers out there! Thank you for your support!
Patented single cup brewers that sit on top of your coffee cup/mug and brew directly into it have been around since the late 1800s, at least that is as early as we could find in the patent searches. The Aeropress® only brews ground coffee or tea, you could probably use a coffee a filter pod. With natural product design improvements and increased functionality the CajunCoffeePress is the next step in the evolution of coffee brewers!
The chamber of the CajunCoffeePress is wider, not only is it more comfortable on your hand it gives you mechanical advantage, and allows for the ability to brew a full travel size mug, the plungers inner diameter is wide enough for you to store several K-cups® in it for travel, the diameter necks down for an increased pressure at the filter cap requiring less force to push the plunger down. The CajunCoffeePress is designed specifically to be able to brew inverted. With the wider chamber it provides a more stable base, there is a double seal on the plunger so there are no messy leaks or potential seal problems while inverted and the filter cap has a raised lip to catch that creamy extraction. (for the people who prefer to brew inverted).
Then there is the universal cap, which opens up a world of possibilities with all of the flavored single cup brewing pods on the market. You are not stuck with just one brand, it's up to you which one you like. This is a great feature if you are traveling and can't find the single serve cups that you like.
The versatility gives you options!
