Hi there. We're two guys that love drinking fresh coffee, but also love the convenience of the push button brewer.
The Problem: Store-bought coffee pods are never fresh. By the time the pod is in your home, the coffee inside is many months old. You can not make fresh coffee from stale beans!
Our Solution: At CUPS, we source “specialty-grade” coffee that’s hand picked at peak ripeness. We then roast that coffee in small batches, package it into recyclable K-Cup pods, and deliver it to your door within days of being roasted. We also include the world's best to-go cups and lids at no extra cost.
How it Works
Coffee roasting is an art. Store-bought coffee is roasted by automated machines in large quantities. At CUPS, we do things the Old World way. Our coffee is hand roasted by master artisans using small batch drum roasters.
You can’t make fresh coffee from stale pods! Store-bought pods sit in warehouses for many months before landing on store’s shelves. At CUPS, our Pods are delivered right to your door at peak freshness, within days of being roasted and converted to pods. Our pods work with any K-Cup machine and you can immediately taste the difference.
With each delivery of our fresh coffee pods, we throw in a sleeve of our handsome to-go cups & lids at no extra cost so you can enjoy your fresh coffee on the go because that's how we live our lives. And of course... they’re fully recyclable.
- 30 K-Cup pods of ultra-premium, single origin coffee, delivered right to your door.
- Every delivery is hand-signed with the "Roasted On" date.
- 10 Premium to-go cups & lids.
- The Coffee Chronicles; a monthly roundup of coffee curiosities.
What’s not included?
- Long lines for a $4 cup of joe.
- Baristas with attitude.
- Someone else’s name on your cup.
- Leather aprons, lame bumper stickers, or hats that only looked good on bicyclists in the 30’s.
Risks and challenges
There are always challenges and risks associated with every start-up. Nevertheless, our risks are fairly minimal at this stage. Our website is already in development and will go live on November 1st. Our product has been tested and proven. We've come this far having invested only our own money.
So the only risk is opening our e-commerce door and not having any customers to serve. That’s why Kickstarter is the perfect platform to help us launch. At CUPS, we want to create a community. We are here to both pre-sell our initial product offering and also celebrate our early supporters.
Thank you all for joining us as we begin the journey of delivering the finest, freshest coffee pods in the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
