It looks like a great idea for coffee at work too. You should approach businesses as well.

@bravoamdrew Thanks for the feedback! You are right, we are looking for businesses to partner with. Hopefully we will get into the B2B space soon too.

@bravoamdrew - That might work in some parts of the country -- have a hard time imagining it being something people would choose to drink at work here in Portland.

When I go camping, I grind some Ristretto Roasters Sidamo beforehand, and bring along a French press -- so I'm trying to figure out when I would ever need this. Hmm. Backpackers might find it handy, I suppose. Oh, maybe you should talk to NASA. Might be appreciated on the ISS, where launch mass is a consideration. :-)

@cacarr haha thanks for this feedback! What we hear from our customers is that they use it instead of carrying that coffee gear with them when camping/backpacking or if they are already using another instant coffee, they want to try something new. In general, it's a convenient pick me up solution, and great for people on the go. We might take you on the NASA idea -- they actually came up with the idea of freeze drying food!

how’s it compare to Sudden Coffee?

@_jacksmith Hi Jack, thanks for this question. Their product is great too, but we have a different mission, price, and obviously flavor.
