Pressure Brew Coffee On The Go With Túbereka

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2018-02-28

Enjoy your coffee how and when you like it with Túbereka, the portable coffee maker that provides the coffee, the brewer and the cup. Brew your java right away by adding grounds and water at the same time or use the vacuum release system to make fresh coffee on the go. With precise internal pressure and an engineered filter, Túbereka lets you add coffee and water to their own compartments, which will remain separate until you decide to brew. With Túbereka utilising a pressure system for both brewing options, you can make 10.5 ounces of deliciously rich and creamy coffee in as little as 90 seconds. And, with three pods capable of holding grounds or beans, stored in the base of the cup, you will have a supply of your favorite drink, wherever you go. The perfect single-cup option to brew coffee at home or on the move.

@Lois: Hi Lois, the unit numbers for the green detail are already locked out because we offered them exclusively on Kickstarter backer surveys only. The cool grey is available on InDemand, however very few units have been selected to date. The additional costs involved with offering variations at relatively low numbers include additional promotion material (photos, CAD etc), manufacturer input (colour sampling and rendering), additional materials, minimum order quantity increases etc. All of these costs are not covered by the small add-on charge generated by the survey - in other words it is still costing the campaign more to offer these colours than the money raised by them. Thanks

If the campaign in Indiegogo managed to increase your initial production quantity, would the green colour be available without extra cost ?

@Robert Masse: Apologies Robert, we’ve just updated that perk. We’re running several ads with different promo’s and that one slipped through the net. Our marketing team have now rectified it. Thanks

Wow, the secret perk on Indiegogo is cheaper than the super early bird pair I bought here. Did I just get ripped of by a few dollars?

Hi Tom Randall,
I'm a backer, and I'm looking forward to my coffee mug, however, I have an issue.
I just received an email saying how you're happy because you've got 90% feedback on the surveys you sent out. Well, I never received a survey. Am I in the system or not? I'm a bit antsy about this as I also had a couple of weeks of problems with my Kickstarter account. Help!
Cheers,
Craig

@Steve Feinstein: Hi Steve We totally appreciate everyone’s opinion on this, hence a personal reply to the few comments we’ve had on the matter. It’s never a hassle to reply to comments and we don’t put a value on the time it takes to respond, but we see your point. Our stretch goal was an obvious way of personalising each product. However, where we’ve apologised is for the miscommunication in the first place because had we reached our target, we still would have provided the options at an additional cost. Had we sailed past the goal, we would have tried our best to offer the options for nothing. We accept that we should have stated that there may be additional costs associated with the stretch goals when we announced it. We are sorry for that. However, this is where we have to point out that we never reached £40000. Cancelled pledges, which every campaign gets, stopped us ever hitting the goal. Again, we think we’ve provided some middle ground. Not offering the colours would have been disappointing but ultimately we need to cover the costs of manufacturing. As you point out, it’s only an option. Better communication would have prevented the confusion. Thanks

Review from Kickstarter
The truth is you did reach your stretch goal. You just were unable to sustain your goal. The promise was if you reached it. Which you did. At 5£ per color. That would take only 76 backers to push past £40000. Thats around 10% of the backers. Let's assume 50% want a different color. That should only cost about £1 extra on each pledge. Let's say everyone wanted a new color, that's less than a half pound per item. My puzzlement is why you don't see the PR value of the goodwill you get from offering the option for free. Certainly the confusion and time spent dealing with it cost more than £380 of your time. Personally I don’t care what color I get. So adjust the calculations appropriately.

@Donald Cowart: Hi Donald Thanks for commenting, this has absolutely nothing to do with upselling. It’s about offering popular options and guaranteeing their successful fulfilment. There is an additional manufacturing cost associated with offering extra colours, hence the increased stretch target - which ultimately we didn’t meet, albeit very close. As a compromise to offering no additional colours as a result of not hitting the target, we listened to all of the feedback and decided to create two options. And yes, we would have loved to offer these for no additional cost. However, every backer originally pledged on this project for the copper colour, which told us that everyone was happy with this. Whilst we understand (and have subsequently apologised for) that we could have communicated the proposed costs sooner, we are glad we can offer the options to our supporters - and of course, they are only add ons. For no additional cost, you can still to choose to select the original
colour you pledged for. Again, sorry for the miscommunication, this absolutely wasn’t deliberate. To absorb the costs of offering the popular alternatives, we had to offer them as add-ons to guarantee successful fulfilment. Thanks

I think upselling for different colors is wrong. Wish I would have seen/known this before I gave you my money.

@Lois: Hi Lois, generally speaking only green beans are prohibited and subject to quarantine rules during imports. Roasted coffee beans, as long as they are declared, are allowed through customs. However, we’d still advise you to check your own country’s import laws. Thanks Tom

Review from Kickstarter
@Tom Randall: While it doesn't affect my choice as I always preferred the original copper colour, I can see how those who were more enthusiastic about the alternative colourways will be disappointed by the unexpected additional charge. I think many of us have been here long enough to know how stretch goals work. Yours are by no means an exception to the rule in that they're an extra (though surely comparatively minor) cost for you to absorb - that IS the rule for stretch goals, generally speaking, which is why they're only ever opened up after the project has considerably surpassed its funding goal (by, for instance, 263%), thus widening the profit margin for the creator. You're right, it's not necessarily deceptive of you not to have announced the additional cost sooner, but it was certainly thoughtless, and to argue that the reason for it costing £5 per extra colour per person is that we didn't reach the £40,000 stretch goal by a mere £380, as if that would have made all the difference, doesn't do much to help your case. Regardless, I hope everyone will be able to overlook this minor hiccup on an otherwise very successful, promising campaign, and I look forward to receiving my copper-coloured Túbereka :)

Review from Kickstarter
@Steve Juarez: Hi Steve. We apologise for the confusion but we do object to the opinion that this was deceiving. You will get exactly what you pledged for with the option to add another colour if you choose. We have to accept that there are additional manufacturing costs when offering different colours. However, in hindsight we should have communicated this better, so we are sorry. We felt like we really wanted to offer the colours to our backers, but we could not absorb the costs. If you check our Indiegogo campaign you’ll see that the Kickstarter Green is not available and the Cool Grey is an additional cost. Perhaps we would have been better advised to offer the Green as a reward tier rather than a stretch goal, but this could have also backfired if the campaign raised a small amount because of the way unit costs work in manufacturing. We hope this explains the situation a little better. Tom

@Francis Dring: Hi Francis and Ashley, we apologise for the miscommunication - this absolutely wasn’t deliberate. As you know, the stretch goal was not originally reached. We deliberated for a quite a while on whether or not to offer a colour option. There is an additional manufacturing cost to us in offering an extra colour, hence the increased target. Stretch goals don’t automatically result in an extra item for free. They are designed to unlock options (which often incur an additional cost) and we consistently referred to the colours as ‘add-ons’. However, we acknowledge we could have talked about costings at that initial stage. We were contacted several times by backers at the end of the campaign, expressing a wish for us to still offer it and we really didn’t want to disappoint. As a compromise for the small additional charge, we decided to offer a further option in the Cool Grey (as suggested by other backers) - knowing that everyone’s original pledge was based on their like for the original colour and in acceptance of us not having to offer colour options because we did not reach our stretch goal. The dilemma was, did we save on manufacturing costs by not adding a colour option or did we offer a popular choice to our backers? We decided to compromise. So although we apologise for the additional cost and the confusion, we are glad backers get a choice. We hope this helps to explain our position. Tom

Review from Kickstarter
A bit deceiving that you say you will be offering two additional colors for reaching a certain level yet for early backers to choose these new colors they have to pay extra for them. No mention of this in any of your posts since the introduction of adding new colors. Not pleased.

Review from Kickstarter
@francis dring NO and I am extremely disappointed that they are charging for the colours “thanks for backing our kickstarter and helping our dream come true, oh you want the different colour that we tempted you with. No problem £5 please on top of your pledge” a bit insulting

Haha was anyone expecting to be charged another £5 for the stretch goal colours?

I don't have experience about buying coffee from abroad, but... a question with regards to the coffee club option. Are roasted coffee beans subject to import quarantine in the entry port ?

Review from Kickstarter
@Rodrigo J Montealegre L: Hi Rodrigo. Thanks for your comment and for backing! It’s great hearing what techniques people use to brew coffee, everyone does it differently. We’re great advocates of keeping it simple. Great quality beans, freshly boiled water (cooled slightly) and a humble filter. The best coffee, for us, is when steam is forced through the grounds. Túbereka closely replicates this process. Crema is contentious. We love it. Modern brewing and barista trends lean towards removing it, as you suggest. However, we think it’s a trait of the best beans and we are partial to full flavours in all our food. But each to their own!! That’s the beauty of brewing coffee and we certainly encourage people to experiment! We do tend to bloom, but also enjoy many roasts without doing so. We agree with you on removing grounds, although there won’t be any need with Túbereka because our filter has micro holes! Great to hear from you Tom
Rodrigo J Montealegre L
Review from Kickstarter
Congratulations in your great success. Using pressurized instruments I find that using the generally recommended recipe tend to yield bitter coffee. That because: 1.- They by pass the blooming and the scooping of the floating grains and crema, 2.- They extract too much of the liquid, even from the grains themselves, and (given point 1 above) from all the grains What I do differently: 1.- Bloom with a ratio of 2:1 for 30 seconds
2.- After an additional 2 minutes (with no lid) scoop the floating beans and crema And only the plunge Would appreciate comments

Congratulations on hitting your goal, so happy to see you succeed. And I can't wait for this to show up, so far this has been one of my favourite items to back as it's just what I need. Hopefully that Kickstarter green is up for grabs as I would love that 😉 hopefully everything goes to plan and we see this in action soon

Review from Kickstarter
@Josh S: Hi Josh Thanks for your comment and for backing! We’ll try and keep this succinct because the campaign page and video demonstrates all of the differences in greater detail; 1. The filter is attached to a circular plunger base resulting in even distribution of force when plunging under increased pressure 2. An air release system which exerts a force onto the brewing process, resulting in greater extraction and flavour from the coffee 3. Two directional plunger, creating a method to brew coffee on the move in addition to on demand 4. Hassle free cleaning - see other comments and page 5. Micro filter prevents over-extraction so no need to decant after brewing. 6. Three storage pods to carry beans or grounds on the move 7. Lightweight, portable and easy to travel with 9. All in one - coffee storage, brewer and insulated cup 8. Great for all ‘one-cup’ coffee occasions - no need to use a large French press for a single cup of coffee Hope this helps! Tom

@creator, how is the Tubereka any different than a regular French press?

Review from Kickstarter
@Robert Masse: Hi Robert. Unfortunately Kickstarter only allows you to pledge once for each campaign. When the survey goes out you’ll be able to upgrade your pledge to any available reward tier, but that will be exactly the same as pledging for the early bird pair before the campaign ends. You’ll also be able to purchase a single Túbereka as an add-on, but that won’t be the same price as the super Earlybird single you’ve currently pledged for. The best way is to pledge for the Earlybird pair. Hope this helps!

How do I purchase a second Tubereka without selecting a pair?

Review from Kickstarter
@Allan Lee: Hi Allan, thanks for commenting and backing. The pressure varies, in part, on the ground size you use. Túbereka’s filter allows you to use any grind size and this will increase/decrease the resistance on the plunger. However, regardless of the grind size, the pressure is vastly increased over other ‘handheld’ coffee makers. Traditionally, an espresso must be made by forcing steam through grounds i.e by a machine. We have tested espresso grounds in Túbereka and the extraction is great (see crema in images). The pods will store between 12-18g each, depending on whether you tamp the coffee in. We suggest, if you love strong coffee, to tamp the coffee into the pods to achieve the higher amount - you may need to assist the coffee out of the pods when doing this. Hope this helps.
Allan Lee
Review from Kickstarter
I have a few questions. 1. How many bars of pressure is this capable of? I want to know if this makes a true espresso. 2. How many grams of coffee is used or needed to be used in one pod?
Does the pod need to be full to be used? I imagine if it is not full, the extraction will have a gap.

@Christopher Wolf: Hi Christopher, thank you for commenting and backing. We will be shipping from the UK using a professional UK shipping handler for all of our products. They use the most reliable and efficient courier service in each country (TBC when we ship). To answer your question specifically, there will be no customs charges from UK to Germany. Thanks once again, Tom.

Hey creator, one important question for me, don't know if it has already been asked. How and from where will u be sending? I don't wanna end up paying extra fees to express delivery for capital provision and import duties... This can easily surpass my backing amount as I learnt by experience on some earlier backed campaigns. Thank you and cheers, chris

Review from Kickstarter
@Steve Feinstein: Hi Steve. Over extraction can cause bitterness, although this is exacerbated by many other factors such as overly hot water, poor quality coffee etc. In the first instance we’d like to point out the GIF under the title “Watch What Happens”. This primarily demonstrates how to brew coffee “On the move”, as explained under “2”. The steps in the demo show hot water inside of Túbereka, with grounds previously added (below the filter). The water has been poured directly on top of the filter and you’ll notice extraction has not occurred. If you replicated this in a French press, extraction would occur instantly. Túbereka restricts extraction by the following; 1. Micro filter (which also increases the pressure inside of Túbereka when plunging). The tiny holes are precision engineered into a one-piece, metal filter - not mesh. 2. The filter construction and design reduces current. In a traditional French press, differences in temperature on the glass sides causes water to circulate. A negligible amount of water is able to interact with grounds when the plunger is depressed in Túbereka. 3. Size below the filter. With traditional French presses, various amounts of coffee is usually added, regardless of recommended quantities. With Túbereka, the space is specifically defined for enough grounds for one cup. When the plunger is depressed, the grounds are compacted below the filter, substantially reducing the surface area for interaction with the water above.
Hope this helps
Tom

Review from Kickstarter
@Steve Feinstein: Hi Steve. There are three main differences between Túbereka and a French press in terms of cleaning. The first is that the depth of Túbereka is less, as it’s designed for repeat ‘one-cup’ coffee use. You’ll find that the grounds are much more accessible. Second, the internal surfaces are much smoother, so removing the grounds is super easy. And third, unlike a French press, where you adjust the amount of grounds depending on how many cups you make, Túbereka has a pre-defined space below the filter to accommodate enough grounds for one cup - when the plunger is lowered, the grounds are compacted below so you don’t end up wit a wet mess. Hope this helps.
