About

This is the Cuppress, a Coffee Capsule Sealing Machine. It’s a small mechanical heat sealer of K-Cups for ground coffee beans. With the Cuppress, make your own favorite K-cup, choose from a broad range types of beverages, such as locally-roasted or specialty flavored coffees or teas. The Cuppress is simple to use and meant for home or work.

COFFEE CAPSULE SEALING MACHINE  

A coffee capsule sealing machines requires precision and the Cuppress handles that for you with a specifically designed base for the K-Cup and lid.

Using the Cuppress is simple: wait 1-2 minutes for the Cuppress to heat up. Place the K-Cup and lid on the base,and then press the Cuppress down 2 seconds on the base to seal. The sealed K-Cup is ready for immediate use or saved for over a month !. The sealing is airtight so the coffee is always fresh. Traditional coffee capsule sealing machines are bulky and heavy, but the Cuppress is small and light, only 4.7 inches in height, 3 inches in diameter, roughly the size of your hand !

PRICE

Average Sealing Machine costs in between $1,500~$4,000, but the Cuppress costs only $60. Both machines have the same heat sealing function but the price difference is enormous. Of course the big machine makes large quantities at once, but an individual user would prefer a small numbers of coffee pods. Buying K-Cups from stores costs an average of $0,73 per pod. The cost of making Your Personal K-Cups with Cuppress is $0.34 per pod. You’ll be saving an average of 53% !

 

LABELING

Everybody has a personal preference in coffee. The Cuppress easily accommodates this personal preference needs by having blank labels that you can hand write on. The label specifies the type of coffee, and clarifies the confusion of ‘Whose coffee is whose ?’

OTHER USE                                                   

The Cuppress can be used to seal small cups (Pod volume: 50 ml or 1.69 fl.oz) for carrying small amounts of portable food items, such as condiments, sauces, syrups, dips, salad dressings or many other liquids for lunch packs, etc….

CONVENIENCE

Is it convenient to clean and refill a Reusable Filter Cup ? The process is onerous to clean and refill a Reusable Filter Cup with ground coffee. You’ll save money by brewing with a Reusable Filter Cup, so why are all of us buying disposable K-cups? The convenience alone is the real reason. The Cuppress’s lid and pod is made almost exactly like the original K-cup’s lid and pod. A sealed Homemade K-Cup is ready for immediate use or saved for over a month ! The sealing is airtight, so the coffee is always fresh !

ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIALS

The Cuppress uses recyclable K-cups. Recyclable K-cups are made from #5 Recyclable polypropylene (PP) include EVOH as an effective moisture/oxygen barrier and 100% BPA Free.

SUMMARY  

The Cuppress is small, simple and convenient. Perfect for home or work. Come support the Cuppress to be massively produced and change the way that coffee is made in our lives.

 

Risks and challenges

We have been working hard to mitigate as many risks as possible, but unforeseen obstacles can always arise when developing a new product. For prototypes, slight changes may occur during mass manufacturing. If necessary, we will make changes to improve the Cuppress. We are confident with our intended shipping date, but there is always the possibility that things could take longer than expected. If unexpected production or fulfillment issues arise, we will notify our backers immediately.
