About this project

My friend, Anthony, and I have been working on Coffee Cereal for the past nine months.  We created a cereal which combines the high nutritious content of corn flakes, the great taste of coffee, and the stimulant affects of caffeine.  After our taste tests this April, we are confident that we have found the perfect recipe.  Now we want to share it with you!

Originally, we crafted our cereal with a baking sheet and an oven.  This method took a lot of work and a lot of time.  This is why we need your help.  If we want to share our creation, we can’t continue making our cereal in such low quantities.  In the past few months, we were able to design a large confectionery coating machine, which allows us to make Coffee Cereal much more quickly.  Using a motor, a stainless steel stockpot, and a few spare parts from our workshop, we were able to build a prototype to test the concept, which succeeded.  With our designs and experience, we now wish to construct a larger coating machine out of stainless steel so that we can increase production and get our cereal into coffee shops across the Midwest.  We can only succeed with your help.

We would like to construct a confectionery coating machine with a much higher capacity to produce more cereal at a time. Large confectionery machines cost anywhere between $5,000 - $60,000, but with our engineering experience from constructing the first machine, we will be able to build our own for between $1,300 - $2,000.

We intend to spend:
Between  $1,000 - $1,300 on two large sheets of stainless steel to be rolled into two halves of the bowl.
Between  $200 - $400 on a new heat source.
$100 - $300 - Miscellaneous stainless steel for the frame
$0 - Large motor that we already own

If we are fortunate enough to raise more than $5,000, we will look into the possibility of simply purchasing a confectionery coater.

We truly appreciate any support that we receive.  What would really help us most is if you helped spread the word.  Blog about us, tweet about us, +1 us, and tell all of your friends!  Thank you for your support!
