Saying Goodbye to Our Minimum Viable Coffee Gear
Hey startup founders and coffee fans, Ken here...
I made the hard decision to remove the many brewing and coffee-related gear options from the site. And here's why...
With the major cluster-f*ck that is the global supply chain currently, shipping times for the dropshipped gear we were offering were averaging 40-50 days.
That's right: forty to fifty DAYS.
That's just an unacceptable amount of time to wait for a [checks notes] hot water kettle. Or a hand grinder. Or a mug. Or a silly little scale we can all find on Amazon for well under twenty bucks.
We all have access to local options to buy affordable kettles, grinders, scales, and coffee mugs.
In the coming weeks, I'll share my reviews of the many options readily available, and those reviews will feature links to where you can purchase the items from trusted online merchants. And most importantly, you'll have those items arrive at your home in a matter of hours or days.
So, say goodbye (for now?) to our MINIMUM VIABLE SCALE, MINIMUM VIABLE GOOSENECK KETTLE, and MINIMUM VIABLE POUROVER BREWER.
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Thanks so much for your understanding!
