About this project
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone for the amazing support! We couldn't have done this without you. You can find us at dripdcoffee.com, Yelp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram...oh yeah, and in person at the shop @
Hi there! We're Chris and Tae, two coffee lovers who've spent more than a decade soaking up San Francisco's growing coffee scene. Soon we began our own personal quest to create amazing coffee, experimenting over the years and developing our own coffee craft. Now we're ready to bring that experience to San Francisco's thriving Inner Sunset district, right next to Golden Gate park.
We're SO close to opening our doors, but we need a final small boost to get to launch. So we're looking to our friends, local neighbors and other coffee lovers to help us fund part of the cost of our espresso machine.
The machine is an old La Marzocco GS/2 that's being rebuilt and customized for our shop. We know you'll love it. It's an amazing piece of work, and we're going to produce some delicious stuff with it.
In a city that hosts many exceptional coffee experiences, we think there's more to bring coffee lovers and/or anyone seeking the highest-quality ingredients. So with DRIP'D, we're offering the best local coffee courtesy of Sightglass Coffee, local organic whole milk and even certified raw milk in the future. We're already working out the details to work with a local bean-to-bar chocolate company, as well as deliver some amazing local treats.
DRIP'D Coffee's Mission
This isn't solely about profit, but truly for our personal love and drive to create a personal experience with each customer and the community. DRIP'D is a retail space share, which we think is awesome. We operate in 2/3 of the ground-floor retail space, while Green11 uses the rest of the space.We love what Green11 brings to the community, a place within the community to conserve resources.
To start, we'll begin operating on weekends almost like a pop-up, Friday to Sunday from 8am-2pm for the first couple of months. We're going to give up 99% of our free time to follow a dream of serving coffee to coffee-loving people, and hopefully make a great deal of new friends along the way.
What We Need from You!
All our launch has been 100% funded from our own pockets, and we remodeled the space from with our own hands. So we're appealing to you, the Kickstarter community, to help give us with a final push to make this dream a reality.
In return for helping us reach our goal, we're offering an awesome array of perks, including instructional classes and more.
A huge thanks for everyone and their support or for taking the time to read this far!
Risks and challenges
There really aren't too many short-term risks for DRIP'D. We are not launching a physical product that requires development time, and we're right around the corner of opening our doors. Risks could be evaluated as long term success and profitability, but we have at least a one-year lease on our shop, so we will be open!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
