People who love to camp also love their coffee. Making coffee outdoors is not always the cleanest or tastiest affair, but that could change with the Kuju PourOver. This tidy, little coffee pourover is currently on Kickstarter looking for backers to meet its $15,000 goal.
The Kuju PourOver has a unique design that won’t tumble into your camp cup.
Kuju Coffee was started by Jeff and Justin Wiguna, two Eagle Scout brothers who love both the outdoors and good coffee. Tired of tasteless instant coffee, their folding, pourover design brews a single cup of coffee with no mess and no equipment.
The PourOver is filled with 100% Direct Trade South American coffee grounds.
The Kuju PourOver, inspired by Japanese origami, unfolds to display a handy paper shelf with anchors that balances the non-woven fabric coffee filter. Filled with 100% Direct Trade ground coffee from South America, hot water is poured over the grounds — making a cup of coffee in just a few minutes. Each of the Kuju PourOvers are packaged in a stylish nitrogen filled packet that fits in a pocket or backpack.
Kuju Coffee will donate 1% of their sales to non-profits.
Kuju Coffee is going a step further by donating 1% of their sales to non-profit organizations that support environmental conservation. After funding, the company will partner with One Percent for the Planet to spread the word about conserving the outdoors. Currently, the Kuju PourOver is not fully compostable, but a second version is in the works that will be 100% compostable.
The Kuju PourOver can also be used for other outdoor activities.
There are several backer levels for the Kuju PourOver from $5 to $5,000 with various rewards including KuJu PourOver packs, enamel mugs, stickers, stuff sacks, and fleece — all with the Kuju Coffee logo.
