The Design

Patents Pending

Flavor Is Everything: Our pour-over system combined with fine paper filters accentuate the sweet undertones in every brew, while minimizing any harsh acidic taste. But, then again, so do many pour-over systems. What makes BRuX unique is that you can take it with you anywhere -- to work, the campground, or on any adventure your day/weekend may hold.

We’ve done away with flimsy plungers and complex assemblies in favor of a super clean and elegant design. A stainless steel container guarantees durability, while double-wall vacuum insulation ensures that your coffee stays hot for hours. It has taken us over 30 iterations of our initial idea to get here. But it was all worth it because with each iteration came improvements that make the BRuX so unique.

Handcrafted Flavor in a Bottle

Up till now, there just wasn't a way to achieve the smooth, refined flavor of a pour-over brew that could go anywhere and make it all really easy. So we rolled out our ideas over a nine month period and redesigned everything from the ground up! The result? An all-in-one coffee system that turns any grind into a handcrafted masterpiece.

Not only is the BRuX the most versatile pour-over brewer, it's also the bottle you drink out of! Rest assured, we engineered the heck out of the BRuX to 'just work'. Because there is no transfer of liquid from pot to cup, the coffee stays hot longer. Now, that's what we call efficiency.

No Gritty Clean-Up

Cleaning is super easy because the BRuX doesn't rely on janky assemblies or multi-piece mesh filters. Just toss or compost the used filter/grinds. That's it. The bottle and cone stay grinds free for easy rinsing.

 Injection Molds Are Ready, Now We Need Your Help!

We've worked really hard on the BRuX and are deeply passionate about sharing it with the world! So much so, that we've scraped together available funds to start the mold and tool making ahead of this Kickstarter. But we have gone as far as we could on our own and now we need your help to take the BRuX the rest of the way. With the backing we receive on this project, we will have the ability to pay for materials and production costs. 

BRuX Journey and Roadmap

The BRuX Design Team

We are Joel and Travis, two pals from Denver who met in college while studying Engineering. We're also the proud founders of Boco Design Co. We've always had a passion for tinkering, problem solving, and designing cool stuff WE wanted to use while camping, climbing, and traveling. Travis and I also want to share our inventions with the world because we think others may benefit from our obsessions! We want to thank everyone who have taken an interest in our project and those who have generously shared and backed our project along the way.

Thanks for sharing our project!

Risks and challenges

Not our first Rodeo :) As engineers and small business owners, we've had to tackle challenges with sourcing materials, mold making, quality inspections, imports/customs, etc. So we should be able to work through any issues that may arise. Furthermore, we already have a high quality manufacturing partner lined up to do the work, which of whom we personally visited and inspected.

We've provided them with all our technical drawings and have been developing the injections molds and tooling ahead of this project, SAVING our backers 3-4 month in additional lead time! This is HUGE in terms of getting the BRuX in your hands as quickly as possible! We've done everything we can at this point to ensure we hit the ground running as soon as funds are available to proceed with high volume manufacturing.
