Just Launched on Kickstarter: AnyCafé, The First Travel Mug to Brew Coffee Pods While on the go
Brew fresh, hot coffee anywhere in the world with AnyCafé’s innovative, patent-pending travel brewer mug
Springfield, Massachusetts – AnyCafé is the first travel mug that brews coffee using coffee pods while on the go. Made of durable materials, the AnyCafé is designed to be rugged enough to travel with coffee lovers on hikes and road trips or accompany them to the office and around town. Currently, the AnyCafé is funding on Kickstarter with a goal to raise $75,000 in 41 days.
With the AnyCafé, users can now have a cup of coffee at their fingertips in minutes. The single-serve brewer is compatible with most coffee pods including K-cups, Starbucks pods and Dunkin Donuts pods. The patent-pending brewing method is designed to combine the convenience of a single-serve brewer and the quality of traditional coffee makers with limited noise output.
“This is a first-of-its-kind travel accessory that gives those who are coffee-obsessed or constantly on the go a delicious, warm cup of coffee in just a few minutes,” said AnyCafé CEO Logan Carlson. “We made sure our design is easy to use and filled with top-notch technology that makes using AnyCafé easier to use than a Keurig.”
To brew a cup of coffee, pop open the lid to the bottle and add any temperature water into the chamber. Next, insert a coffee pod of choice and close the lid. To begin the brewing process, press the button on the outside of the bottle, and after a few minutes, the coffee is ready to be enjoyed.
The battery is made out of cutting-edge Lithium-Ion battery technology and can easily be detached from the shaft of the bottle. The bottle is able to recharge in 4 hours using a 12v charger at home, in the car or at the office.
While the AnyCafé is currently only compatible with coffee pods, the company is planning on creating a loose bean or tea leaf version to help eliminate plastic waste and create a more eco-friendly product. The company hopes to be able to use funds from the Kickstarter campaign to produce this option.
The AnyCafé can hold 9.5 ounces, is BPA-free and weighs around one-and-a-half pounds. The AnyCafé can be pre-ordered starting at $49 on Kickstarter. To learn more or to pre-order, please visit http://bit.ly/anycafeks.
