Hey Kickstarters!!

I hope you all are enjoying the rewards of your patience. Coffee Shop Pack backers, your time has come. 31 CSPs have shipped out so far, and we expect the rest to go out by next Tuesday. I know there are some people whose beans haven't arrived for one reason or another (they were returned, lost in the mail, etc.). If this is you please message me asap and we'll sort it out. We still have a few late-entered addresses to get to, but rest assured this will be taken care of in the next week.

Our Holiday Gift Packs hit the market with a bang. People are excited ordering them for their friends and families (and themselves, I'm sure). Then hundreds of emails hit my inbox with a louder bang saying that people want to have the option of ordering Joulies by themselves. As they say the customer is always right, so here they are, $50 for 5 as advertised. joulies.com/products/5-pack

As you know our production capacity is growing slowly and we only have a limited number of 5-Packs available, so if you're in the market for gifts there's no time like the present to snatch these up if you want them delivered in time for Christmas. Happy shopping!!

Best,

Dave & Dave

Hey Kickstarters!! Our new online store is open for business. Because of the popularity of the Enthusiast Pack we are offering the Coffee Joulies Gift Pack for the holidays.

Set of 5 Joulies, Joulies logo Thermos Sipp travel tumbler and carrying pouch all packaged in a nice woven jute gift bag.

Coffee Joulies will also be in Times Square this holiday season at the WIRED Store, so stop by and tell everyone how much you like them! You can also check them out at the WIRED Online Store.

For our Coffee Shop Pack backers, the packaging for your sets is on its way, and every last one of your packages will be sent out before we send a single Gift Pack for the holidays.

Empact100, White House, Holiday Joulies Sales

Posted by Dave & Dave (Creator)

Empact100 – Thank you so much to everyone who voted! Coffee Joulies has been officially added to the 2011 Empact100 list. This list recognizes the 'top 100 companies run by young entrepreneurs' (age 30 or younger). We're not sure exactly what spot we will receive on the final list, as it is determined by more than just votes. But, we are only 54 votes away from most 'liked' so help us bump it into first place! http://empact100.com/list.php

Dave and I will be attending a recognition event at the White House Executive Office with “senior administration officials.” We will be pledging our support to the education of entrepreneurship. The event will be broadcast live from whitehouse.gov/live on Nov 17th sometime between 2 and 5 pm.

We will also be spending the morning on Capitol Hill discussing the role that entrepreneurship will play in creating new jobs and bringing the economy back to full employment. We are humbled and thrilled to be talking about this kind of issue with no-doubt very smart and influential people. We would love to hear what our backers have to say so we can relay your messages. Put your opinions in the comments below.

Sales for the holidays – We are getting a TON of requests for Joulies as gifts for the holidays this year. We are doing everything we can to finish off Kickstarter orders and have as many as possible able to ship before the Holidays. Here is our best guess at the moment:

-Our website – our new website with online store will be launching soon with the equivalent of an Enthusiast Pack available for pre-order for the holidays. Still working out exactly how many we can guarantee for shipment this season, which depends on production in the factory over the next few weeks.

-WIRED holiday store in Times Square NYC – Coffee Joulies will be on display from November 18th to December 24th at the pop-up WIRED store. If you are in the city, stop by and check them out. We will make sure to tweet whenever we are going to be at the store to talk to potential customers.

Shipping update – We are wrapping up all of the kickstarter orders over the next couple of weeks. We are shipping mainly the last personal and enthusiast international packs this week and next week and will ship all CSP's in one shot two or three weeks from now, in plenty of time for xmas gifts or resale.

Best,

Dave & Dave

Hey Kickstarters!! I'm going to keep this short and sweet because we have another 3000 Joulies coming in soon that need to be packed up and shipped out. Including the shipment I dropped off at the Post Office this morning we have shipped 3268 sets and 247 mugs to 2681 backers. That means more than half of you have your Joulies or will have them soon.

If you think you should have yours by now and don't please follow the instructions below to check before you inundate me with messages.

Apparently that spreadsheet we sent the link to was confusing/flawed/impossible to open so we have a new way for you to tell whether your package should have shipped or not. We have been shipping first in - first out with a few minor exceptions. This means if you know when you backed Coffee Joulies you can find out when your package should ship.

Search your email for "Thanks for becoming a backer of Coffee Joulies" and see when you received the message. We have shipped the vast majority of orders placed before April 18 with the following exceptions:

International Enthusiast Packs have shipped up through April 5 (we ran out of mugs to ship beyond that - more will be arriving soon)

No Coffee Shop Packs have shipped yet (still waiting on retail packaging)

Let me take a moment to thank all of our Coffee Shop Pack backers for their extreme patience. Pledging $500 for a product with no set ship date is an act of courage and faith in us and we truly appreciate it. We are working hard to get proper retail packaging in so you will be able to sell these for the holidays, and as soon as it's ready we will catch up on CSP orders and then ship them first in - first out with the rest of our orders.

Who should message me:

If you pledged before April 18 and think you should have your Joulies and don't, first double-check the address you gave us by logging onto Kickstarter, going to http://kck.st/hLU2zo and clicking on "Your response" next to the backer level you pledged at. If your address is incorrect please send me a message with your correct address and I will check to see if your order has shipped. If you already sent me an updated address you don't need to message me again. If your address is correct and you pledged sometime near April 18 give it a few more days and then message me. If you never filled out the survey then please message me with your current address.

To everyone else, thank you very much for your patience. The production line is finally humming along and you should all have your Joulies within the next few weeks. I'll post a comment on this update every few days letting you know what date we've shipped through.

Best,

Dave & Dave
