Team Coffee Brake Mug,
Three years ago today on my 40th birthday, we launched a kickstarter campaign to fund the production of Coffee Brake Mug version 4. Although that first campaign was unsuccessful for various reasons, we were encouraged by many of you to take another run at it a few months later. We made some adjustments and relaunched a successful campaign that met the funding goal in under 2 hours. We couldn’t have been more thrilled!!
We went straight to work with our already established manufacturer with a goal to get these produced and shipped in 6 months. Ha! Due to unforeseen challenges it ended up taking just over a year to get to the actual fulfillment stage. Again, we were thrilled to get them into your hands and subsequently see you all using them in all parts of the world. It really brought smiles to our faces to see you all enjoying them like we knew you would, and it made all the work we put in worth it.
Some of you have noticed a lack of posts lately and I’d like to address that. About a month or so ago I was approached by a friend about an exciting new job opportunity. He couldn’t go into detail but said that my creative skills that were developed in the concept to completion of the Coffee Brake Mug would be a huge asset. I met with the founder of the company and accepted a position and started work the very next day. It has been a whirlwind of a month and has been the most challenging project in regards to product innovation and design that I’ve ever worked on. It has also been very rewarding thus far. I get to interact and collaborate with some very creative and intelligent people on a daily basis and I enjoy working hard every day. I am thrilled with this opportunity.
So what’s going to happen to Coffee Brake Mug? Well, we’ll continue to run it as a side hustle but you may see some gaps on the social media front. We will continue to fulfill orders while supplies last and we still guarantee fast service.
Will there be a version 5? As of now, no. I can’t fathom another iteration but you never know, right?
Thanks so much for your continued support and encouragement over these last few years! We really appreciate it!
