COFFEE & CODED is empowering a community of inventive, entrepreneurial, fearless women in tech. We think our everyday fashion should reflect that. 

Why are we doing this?

COFFEE & CODED apparel was designed to help break stereotypes against women in tech/STEM fields. We took a look at the currently top-selling merchandise for developers, engineers, female entrepreneurs, and other women in tech/STEM; and honestly, it wasn't representative AT ALL. We think you deserve merchandise that's as BAD-ASS as you are - and cute too!

Our first t-Shirt, "I Look Like A Developer", was inspired by our Founder's own experiences of being doubted and patronized as a woman in STEM. This line was created to push back against so many pervasive stereotypes in the industry. By nature, we are creators, inventors, and rule-breakers. If this sounds like you, we welcome you to join our community and back this project. In addition to getting some amazing merchandise, the funds from this campaign will go toward supporting COFFEE & CODED's educational classes and workshops in coding, design, and entrepreneurship.

Our T-Shirts

Our t-shirts and crop-tops are 100% combed and ring-spun cotton soft blend. We've designed 8 Signature Tees/Crop-Tops you can purchase as a part of this Kickstarter Campaign. Sizes for our Tee-shirts reflect unisex measurements to fit any body. See our size chart below to find your size. They're soft and lightweight, with the just right amount of stretch. The fit is comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

What's COFFEE & CODED?

COFFEE & CODED is a New York based organization, empowering a community of women in tech. COFFEE & CODED hosts classes and workshops in coding, design, and entrepreneurship for women interested in technology. Our goal is to increase the number of women in tech through skills-based workshops and community building events. For more info on our organization, please visit our website.

 Where are these funds going?

The proceeds from this Kickstarter will be supporting COFFEE & CODED's ongoing educational classes and workshops for women in NYC. Our courses cost approximately $75-$100 to produce per session and are scheduled 2-3 times per month at various locations around the city. We have a dedicated team of local volunteers, interns, teachers, and advisors that continue to keep COFFEE & CODED successful. None of the proceeds of this campaign will go toward salary or compensation for our team. 

Risks and challenges

Our shipping and fulfillment team is set-up and ready to take orders. Orders will be fulfilled via our drop-shipping platform from our fulfillment center in North Carolina (for US orders) and Latvia (for European orders). We will send surveys to our backers October 16th to capture size, shipping address, and product selection for those who have participated in the Choose Your Own "Reward Level."

Standard shipping time in the U.S. takes 2-7 business days after fulfillment (2-7 business days). Expedited shipping will only apply to the shipping process, not the fulfillment process.

97.66% of our orders are shipped within 5 business days. More than a half of our orders are shipped within 3 business days or less. For international orders, it will be shipped within 10-20 business days. Keep in mind that we don't ship orders to Cuba, Iran, Iraq, and North Korea. We ship internationally to all other countries!

Gratitude reward levels will be fulfilled via our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Newsletter, Website) October 15-19th.

Backers that have purchased a private consult with me or my team will receive separate emails to the email provided during the time of backing.

If you have an issue or question about your order, please reach out to us at info@coffeeandcoded.com with the Subject Line: Merchandise Customer Service Issue. We will tend to your issue as soon as possible.
