Dripkit delivers coffee and coffee products.
Despite the seeming ubiquitous nature of Keurigs, Nespressos, and other quick and easy coffee machines, plenty of java consumers still prefer a quality cup. Dripkit intends to cater to those customers: individuals willing to shell out a little more money for a premium brew. The company’s site has a clean design. Their packaging espouses an impeccable aesthetic. Like Blue Bottle or Intelligensia, the small focuses on design and storytelling make it seem as if Dripkit drinks are worth spending money on. The story that the company tells is this: their “head of coffee,” Gabe Boscana, travels the world in order to secure beans from family-run farms and co-ops. Dripkit brings the coffee back to Brooklyn, where they roast the beans and then ship them wherever they need to go.
Like Keurigs and other simple coffee machines, Dripkit also sells gear to make the coffee brewing process both simpler and more elegant. Gear comes in the form of a kettle and mugs that fit the cardboard filters that accompany each batch of coffee. Using this gear, you can create your own single cup pourover that tastes much better than whatever happens when you stick a Keurig pod in a machine and shut the lid. Although Dripkit does offer subscription services so that you can keep the coffee flowing, they also offer coffee in the form of 5, 10, or 20 packs of pourover bags. Think of it as a step up from other forms of instant coffee, with a beautiful design, aesthetic, and company mission to back it up.
