FrankOne™ – Coffee and Cold Brew in Seconds

$166,534

Good cold brewed coffee can take up to 12 hours to make. With FrankOne it is possible to prepare exceptional cold brewed coffee in as little as 4 minutes. Our Vacuum Extraction Technology™ accelerates the process by forcing cold water through finely ground coffee. We ourselves were surprised to try such a strong yet smooth cup made in so little time.

 
FrankOne pulls enough pressure that it is possible to make a shot very similar to espresso. It gives a kick, is sweet, and very intense. 


FrankOne has a unique characteristic that sets it apart from other manual brewers: our patented Vacuum Extraction Technology™ uses negative pressure to force water through a bed of ground coffee, extracting more of the flavors that coffee has to offer, while reducing bitterness. Our patented method generates pressure that is strong enough to allow brewing with any grind size; from very fine to very coarse. Different grind sizes mean the possibility of preparing a wide range of brew types and cup profiles–from coffee to cold brew, all with the same machine.

Our patented technology also provides superior convenience and ease of use: press a button and your coffee is ready in seconds.

Save money by avoiding paper filters. Our fine metal mesh filter imparts no flavor into the coffee and lasts for hundreds of uses. The filter can easily be removed for cleaning. 

FrankOne™ charges over USB in just 2 hours and makes up to 150 coffees on a single charge.
 

Cleaning is a breeze! FrankOne™ is completely waterproof.  

                                              

The Golden Cup Standard is defined by the Specialty Coffee Association. The standard is backed by extensive research and is widely used in the industry. FrankOne takes just 30 seconds with a medium-fine grind to achieve the Golden Cup Standard. If you want to get scientific, check out the graph below. The sample we made (red circle) fell inside of the Golden Cup square in green. Note that coffee outside of the standard can be delicious as well! It comes down to your personal preference. 

 FrankOne can make a beverage remarkably similar to an espresso by using finely ground coffee, or even a full-bodied french press by using coarsely ground coffee. It all depends on the steeping time and the grind size you use. Below are some recipes we have discovered; you can easily make an intense brew as well as a light brew, depending on your preference.




By backing our campaign early you will receive FrankOne™ months before the general public has access to it. You will also receive a discounted price of 25% off. You have the satisfaction of knowing you helped bring FrankOne™ into the world. Without you, FrankOne would never exist.   

You can be sure that your money is well invested with us. We have partnered with Dragon Innovation and Avnet who are very experienced in mass manufacturing. They have helped dozens of startups navigate through the perilous world of manufacturing a product at scale. We have already selected our partner manufacturer who is ready to start production 3 days after the campaign ends. Take a look at the factory verification tour we did in preparation for the campaign on Instagram

This project earned a Readiness Level 2 in Hardware Studio Connection program

Risks and challenges

Because we have gone through a rigorous external auditing program, we can guarantee you will receive a FrankOne™ brewer. We have hired Dragon Innovation, a manufacturing expert that has helped several very successful Kickstarter products deliver on time. They audited our design and will guide us through the manufacturing stage, preventing any potential issues that may arise. As with all manufacturing projects, there is a risk that we take some weeks longer to deliver FrankOne.

You can read FrankOne's external audit assessment at the link below under Readiness Level 2.
