     The first Press-Bot was a limited release and is no longer available. Because it's such a great design, I started CanyonCoffee.us to bring it back. I've obtained sole license rights from the original designer and contacted the original production firm. We have agreements in place to manufacture 3,000 Press-Bots. They sent me eight pre-production Press-Bots  - as shown in the photographs and video.  These Press-Bots met my standards for a production run. I've paid 90% of the production costs. Now I just need some help with final production and shipping costs of about $1500.  
     Upon successful completion of this project, I'll be able to receive the Press-Bots, purchase the stickers, coozys, and Nalgene bottles, and cover all shipping costs to get you your rewards. I'll ship rewards to all backers by the end of November 2013. Additionally, I will be able to produce videos for all backers showing the best way to make coffee, tea, and yerba mate with their new Press-Bot.  

     Hi, my name is Brian Siebert. For about twenty years now, I have guided folks into the backcountry - places like Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Alaska, and the desert canyons of Utah.

     I am a certified coffee junkie. Whether I am at home, or in the backcountry, French press style coffee is what I prefer – coarse grounds steeping in boiling water creates the smoothest, full flavored brew you will find, anywhere. However, there are limited options for making excellent coffee on the trail. That is until I discovered the Press-Bot.

  • works with any 32 oz large-mouth Nalgene bottle (bottle not included unless specified in the reward)
  • durable aluminum and high-impact plastic construction 
  • light weight
  • packs away inside Nalgene bottle 
  • make a bottle of coffee, tea, or yerba mate for everyone in camp 
  • or drink it all yourself 
  • no trash and no filters to dispose of 
  • doubles as a camera stand 
  • non-toxic when used with a BPA free Nalgene

     The first generation of Press-Bot was a limited release and is no longer available; this is where YOU and KICKSTARTER come in. I have obtained licensing rights, lined up a new production run, and quality checked two pre-production batches. 
     I put up my family’s nest egg of $20,000 to cover a production run of Press-Bots. However, I am coming up a little short and I need your help.

     All my ducks are in a row, everything is a go. I just need help with the final production payment and shipping costs. With your help, Press-Bots will be available for shipping in November - just in time for the holidays.

Risks and challenges

I have already quality inspected two pre-production batches. My standards have been met and I am negotiating the shipment price. I purchased full shipment insurance, thus negating any accidents or catastrophes. Circumstances beyond my control may delay production and shipping from the factory. I will report any delays immediately and let everyone know any new time frames.
