It's hard to believe that we launched our Kickstarter campaign 3 months ago. We started off with a hope that people would be interested in our passion product; and you were. Your support has powered us through the last 2 months.
From the outset, our hope was to have Coffee Blocks shipped by the end of August. It was an aggressive timeline, but there's nothing like a little fire under you to keep you motivated.
We knew there would be challenges and sure enough we hit a few, the biggest of which was getting our sealing machine before we started our Coffee Block production run. It was scheduled to arrive the day before our run started. That left no room for error and there was a significant downside in lost ingredients and funds. So, we decided to postpone production for 1 week.
Last week, we spent a huge amount of time with the team at our production facility. We got the whole process dialed in and started making Coffee Blocks on a massive scale. The full production run will be completed this week.
Next week the Coffee Blocks will be transported to our fulfillment partner and from there they will be processed and fulfilled to our amazing Kickstarter Backers.
Long story, short. We expect to start shipping everything around September 15.
We apologize for the small delay and are thankful for your patience and feedback so far.
