About

Ninja Narwhal Coffee Company is a startup born out of work done in the Full Sail University Innovation & Entrepreneurship program and our 4 founders passion for coffee! Our business model involves two things...

  • Our www.coffeeunicorn.com website which allows coffee lovers looking for their ideal roast to use our advanced coffee search utility to "Find Coffee" in our database that perfectly suits their preferences and tastes! One of the biggest challenges for roasters is getting their beautifully crafted products in front of consumers and our website helps solve this problem by connecting coffee lovers directly with the roasters to make their purchase! In short, we help coffee lovers find their coffee unicorn!
  • Our own branded merchandise designed to "add value at the intersection of humans and coffee". Case in point, our patent pending 'No Drip Sip Catch-ee Cup' (coffee cup); the subject of this campaign!

The "No Drip Sip" Catch-ee Cup's design is a revolutionary new spin on the traditional ceramic coffee cup!

Plastic prototype below. Final CERAMIC version will be 9% SMALLER than pictured below.

The cup is not only pretty freakin' cool looking, but also comes with the following features...

No Drip Sip Catch-e Cup: Features and Benefits
No Drip Sip Catch-e Cup: Features and Benefits

Our primary mission is to make this the primary coffee cup choice for LAWYERS and LEGAL OFFICE PROFESSIONALS who need to protect their formal attire and important legal documents from coffee stains. (don't want to walk into court looking like you forgot to do laundry!) However, the cup offers benefits to a variety of different occupations and lifestyles including accountants, tax professionals, media workers, teachers, people on the go, those with shaky hands, etc... (For emphasis, we feel strongly that this product line could prove useful for those afflicted with medical conditions that cause shaky hands)

Better yet, the cup comes with a break it/we replace it guarantee! (for accidents of course!)

We have our final CAD drawing, we have our physical prototype (plastic model above), we have manufacturing quotes in hand and relationship established... all we need now is YOU! 

All funds being requested for this campaign are to help get our first batch of 'No Drip Sip Catch-ee Cups' on the way by covering the fixed startup cost...

  • Master Mold ($2,400)
  • Production Sample ($300)
  • Production Stamp ($300)

Rolling out this cool cup requires additional costs which we will be funding ourselves which are listed below. While we would be overjoyed to get some of these costs covered as well so we can hit the break-even point sooner, we wanted to ensure to have a realistic funding goal for this as of yet unknown product to keep our chances of bringing it to market high!

  • Production molds (recurring)
  • Manufacturing the cups themselves (unit cost for initial production run)
  • NNCC Logo printing (if we hit our stretch sales goal)
  • Custom packaging (so they arrive in style!)
  • Shipping of all initial inventory to our location

The other awesome news is that our www.coffeeunicorn.com website is already up and running! You can now use it to find your ideal coffee to fill your 'No Drip Sip Catch-ee cup' in a snap! (check out the Featured Roasters!)

Risks and challenges

Aside from any unforeseen production issues, I think we have this project handled!

We have a final drawing and prototype, next step is getting the production molds created, ramping up slow on the first batch and then cranking them out! We are able to keep the startup costs reasonably low because our manufacturing partner allows lower volume production runs.

While the 'Catch-ee cup' is a very complex out of this world design, our manufacturing partner is well versed in creating amazing end products and we are confident we will be able to see this baby thru to deliver everyone a well designed, attractive and useful one of a kind ceramic coffee cup!
