About this project
Learn more about our Pure Coffee System in this video.
Hey KickStarter! My name is Bryan Runyan. I have a lifelong passion for coffee and after having a glass of cold drip coffee in Los Angeles I decided to make a machine of my own. I found some ways to significantly improve on the machines I saw and made one for myself. After my friends got a taste they have been bugging me non-stop to make them one. After much debate, research, and investment I decided to go into production and allow my friends and others to enjoy what I have in my own home. I have called this design The Tower. The frame and serving plate are made in my home town of Tyler Texas and all the glass pieces are hand blown to our specs in South Carolina.
We would like to introduce to you our cold water drip coffee system. The cold brew technique was created in Japan a century ago. We took their knowledge and experience and applied it in a new way that only uses glass. There are no filters to change or buy nor is there any waste except for the used coffee grounds. It also requires no power. Outside of breakage this system could be used for hundreds of years.
We made a working prototype and eventually signed a deal with a distributor. We were about to launch when the distributor changed our payment terms in such a way that it made it impossible to launch our product through them. We really need your help to get this product off the ground. If we can't we not only lose our investment, but also the opportunity to share our coffee with the world. We need your support and invite you to partner with us in this endeavor. We have had our coffee tested by the finest roasting company in the nation and they have concluded we have produced "a perfect cup of coffee" according to international standards. The flavor is amazing! Because of the low acidity it has a very smooth rich taste.
We are going into production immediately after this campaign ends and will start shipping our units shortly after.We would like to say thank you to our family and friends that have helped make this possible, and to you our customers for all your support.
Risks and challenges
After a year of research, design, building, and manufacture preparation our distributor dropped a bomb on us by changing our payment terms. These terms made it impossible to get our machine manufactured.We need your help to keep going. Without you we would not only lose our investment, but the world could lose out on tasting our coffee. Please help us get our coffee out there. Every little bit helps. The money raised will go straight into manufacturing making enough units to give to our backers and provide some inventory to get a sales stream going.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
