About this project
Velo Coffee Roasters is an exercise in sustainability. That means whether we're delivering our product, serving customers, or expanding our offerings, we will attempt to act as responsibly as possible. Our method of growth is to develop and maintain quality before we increase our quantity of output. However, in order to move forward with either we need to upgrade our roasting machine.
We see Kickstarter as a way to give our supporters an opportunity to invest in Velo Coffee, and we're ready to invest with you. We've been saving money in preparation for taking this step. Were half way to our goal, but we need one last financial push to purchase the roaster.
Our choice of roaster is a new cast iron Joper 15 Kilo with an added Brigus Roast Control & Profile System. Besides having a larger production capacity, this machine and profile system will allow precise control over every aspect of the roasting process. We're aiming to better our craft, and this machine will facilitate that.
Chattanooga is home to many innovative and sustainably minded businesses, and it's our goal to participate along side them as the community grows. So we got together with some of Chattanooga's most creative folks to commission a set of unique, inspirational, and utilitarian rewards to give in return for your support.
Risks and challenges
Past experience has made us aware that there is always a possibility for difficulty, error, and mishap. However, four years in the industry has taught us to always think ahead. We have a space for the roasting machine already, plus experience purchasing and installing one. We are comfortable fulfilling orders, and shipping time sensitive products in a manner that ensures freshness. And finally, when it comes to fulfilling rewards, we've got a dependable and qualified group of collaborators involved with this campaign who are prepared and motivated to fill orders with us. We're always cautious of getting ahead of ourselves, but we've been preparing to take this step, and we are confident in our ability to create and accomplish these goals.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
