About

Why was the KOHI Flask invented?

Frustrated with the waste created in disposable coffee cups and unsatisfied with the thermos options available to take a coffee to work, we pursued inventing our own: a thermos that allowed café-quality coffee, all day long.  

Starting as a passion project, we soon realised the potential and industry need for an environmentally friendly flask that produced quality coffee better than the instant coffee options available in the market. After two years of ongoing designs, redesigns, and production, the KOHI Flask was born.

Fight to make the Coffee Flask industry eco friendly

Half of the plastic produced globally goes into products that are used only once, which creates a staggering amount of waste. Coffee cups are estimated to be the second-largest contributor to litter waste after plastic bottles. It is estimated just in Australia 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year end up in landfill, equating to around 60,000 kilograms of plastic waste per annum. 

The KOHI flask doubles as a reusable cafe cup, with the intent of reducing the waste caused by single-use cafe cups. The reusable KOHI Flask cup allows you to prepare your coffee at home, or buy one on the go, knowing you're not contributing to the waste problem.

How does it work?

The KOHI Flask is a unique product, combing coffee brewing components to allow you to enjoy a café-quality coffee, on the move.

The concept behind the design was to create a drinking flask that allowed the user to prepare their drink of choice at home and then enjoy a fresh, hot and recently frothed beverage wherever they went.

Product features:

The KOHI Flask is made up of two flask chambers: one specifically for the milk and the other to brew the coffee. The milk chamber includes a built-in frothing plunger, allowing you to froth the milk to your desired preference and enjoy it fresh with your hot coffee.

The coffee chamber holds the coffee grind of choice, and brews the coffee once you have poured in boiling water. The coffee can be brewed earlier at home, or brewed just prior to drinking.

The screw-top lid has a steel mesh filter integrated into the design filtering the coffee so none of the grind makes it into the pour. The lid provides a leak proof seal which allows for a smooth 360-degree pour into the KOHI Flask cup.

The important stuff  

We recognise good quality materials, and the importance it has when making good coffee. Therefore we wouldn't develop a product with anything less. Sleep soundly knowing your KOHI Flask is:  

  • BPA free
  • 8 hours hot or cold
  • Sweat proof

What's your poison?  

The KOHI Flask caters for multiple options when it comes to your preferred drink, and can be used for, but is not limited to:  

  • Cappuccino
  • Flat white
  • Long black
  • Chai lattes
  • Hot chocolate
  • Cold brew
  • Iced coffee
  • Flavoured water
  • Tea

No matter the weather, occasion or your poison - the KOHI Flask has the right option for your needs.

And, who are we?

The KOHI flask started out as a garage project in the suburbs of Canberra, Australia's capital - a place with great coffee. The KOHI Flask is the debut product of Kohi&Co., a small business with big ideas, started by Caleb Moran. 

Kohi&Co. specialises in well designed and innovative appliances. It is a company that respects innovators, pioneers and those that do things differently.

Risks and challenges

We are frothing for this project (pun intended). We’ve had many sleepless nights (definitely not the coffee...) making sure that everything is seamless. Still, we can’t foresee every problem so we’re committed to fixing any challenges that may arise during the fulfillment process.

Product Manufacturing
• We’ve designed, redesigned and done some more to filter out problems which have arisen from many prototypes. We are confident with the working prototype that we will be able to deliver and overcome any problems that might come up throughout the manufacturing stage.

• We will maintain constant communication with our manufacturer to ensure on-time delivery and resolve any challenges that arise.

Shipping
• As soon as we receive the Flasks, we have a team in Canberra that will be shipping the packages out right away.

Product Guarantee
• All Flasks come with a 12 month warranty. We want to create products that stand above all our competitors with a level of exceptional quality, so we plan to use the best materials and will deliver a product that's build to last!
