Coffee Cuppa, make a quick brew just for you.
"The production version will be a lot more polished than the prototypes show in the video"
The coffee cuppa was invented to brew coffee a cup at a time with whole ground beans.
The problem I was having with traditional methods is coffee machines take up a lot of room in my kitchen and quite often find themselves relocated to a dark corner. French presses and chemex are good but they take longer to clean than I can be bothered to. The solution I dreamed up is the coffee cuppa, it's a little food grade silicone coffee bean shaped capsule which has a fine metal gauze that slides right in. To clean it simply knock out the coffee grounds and rinse quickly under a tap.
The funds being raised will allow models to be 3D printed, vacuum formed molds to be made, casting of the silicone and production of the mesh gauze insert.
To add additional "COFFEE CUPPA' simply pledge £10 extra, so if you want 5 for awesome Xmas presents simply pledge £50.
We will produce these in a variety of colours, after the project we will ask what colour you want, choose from; Brown, Orange, Red, Blue or black.
The Coffee Cuppa will come in a nice little Hessian bag (like a micro coffee sack) made from recycled coffee sacks, and will be placed inside a cardboard box with a few whole coffee beans so the fresh smell of coffee will tingle the senses when it is opened.
The Coffee Cuppa is 1 part of the coffee experience, we also have a range of coffee beans and coffee cups, to add a coffee cup just add £12 to your pledge.
OUR AWESOME ROASTED COFFEE BEANS!
All of our fantastic roasts are organic, fairtrade and RA certified. At Breaking Beans we do more than build cool kitchenware, we also source, concoct and invent awesome brews. We love coffee that's why it's important to us that the coffee being made by our Coffee Maker is the best we could find or produce. Our coffee beans are prohibitively expensive to produce on the small scale we have been doing to date, we are looking to be able to buy in bigger bulk so as we can share our coffee experimentation with as many people as possible.
We have 5 beans available at the moment for our Kickstarter coffee guru's, all of which can be added onto your pledge for £10 each or 5 for £40, these are 250 gram blue baggies of coffee lovers wet dreams. Our Coffee beans are sometimes strait from the source as is, sometimes we cold smoke them, sometimes we hot smoke, more details below.
Peruvian Bacon Smoke - A subtle bacon smell which sets the taste-buds tingling in the morning. The smoking gives these Coffee Beans a delicate silky taste which is a million miles away from that instant stuff seen in supermarkets. The bacon adds a surprising angle whilst remaining subtle and delicate.
Columbian Cracked Cinnamon - A single estate Coffee Bean which has been cold smoked with a dash of cinnamon on the wood chips, this is not a comedy coffee, its a very delicate, rich taste which proves soo Moorish you will wish you brought more.
Heisenberg Blue - A deep full bodied coffee which comes from a small producer in Costa Rica, we roast these coffee beans at 2 slightly different temperatures which adds to the depth of flavour and produces one of the finest coffee's we've ever brewed.
Guatemala Guano - These are smaller than average beans which are hand picked in Guatemala, a country know for its fantastic coffee. We hot smoke roast these coffee beans, a process which does not always yield a good result (hence the name we have given it). Therefore we test each batch to make sure it's as great as we have tasted, then we drink lots and lots of it. A must try for any intrigued coffee fanatic.
Karma Sumatra - Smoked using cocoa nibs in the process gives these Sumatran coffee beans the ultimate in seductive flavours, an excellent coffee in its own right we kick up a gear the flavours already contained in the beans to produce the naughtiest indulgence to date.Taster sets - NOW AVAILABLE- A selection of 8 experimental coffee blends (8x100g) created by us, add £25 to your pledge.
