With only seven more days until its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter comes to an end, the unique, eye-catching drink container Goat Mug has raised nearly $334,000 thanks to its 8,281 backers.
As previously reported, The cup, which resembles a goat’s horn, supposedly helps the user enjoy every sip of their coffee. The cup also comes with a special holder with leather touch that will simply turn into a stand so that anyone who uses it can keep the mug on their desk. It also comes with a set of two straps so the user can attach it to a bag or a shoulder.
Other features include:
- Sustainable: Made from 110% eco materials BPA FREE!
- 100% Leakproof: No more of those coffee stains on your clothes
- Hot Drinks: The mug will keep your coffee hot for up 2 hours
- Dishwasher Safe: Will handle the harshness of the dishwasher
Explaining its creation, the Goat Mug team shared, “If you love coffee as much as we do, we’re sure you would LOVE to be able to drink it anytime anywhere. And so would we! That is why we decided to make a coffee mug that is practical and sustainable, but is also a fashion accessory and tells the primeval story of coffee.”
In regards to any risks, the team noted, “Our team has lots of experience with product design, production and tooling processes. We believe that being well prepared, expecting the unexpected and having a back up plan is what makes us trustworthy.
“Since the design of the Goat Mug is so different from all other coffee mugs out there, we had to pay special attention to finding the right producers that will enable the production of the Goat mug to run as smoothly as possible. We spent almost a year arranging and optimising all steps in production line. We already financed some parts of necessary tooling, but we need your support in order to finalise all the details and missing parts.
“We want to be 100% honest with our customers and will keep you up to date with EVERYTHING. Every bit of change will be posted in our updates section, so you’ll always know how far in production or in the shipping process your Goat mug is.”
During a recent update, the Goat Mug team announced, “Many of you have been asking us about the price of GRANDE GOAT MUG and the procedure to change your order. We are writing this in order to clear that the price is going to remain the SAME. Also, you will be able to pick the GRANDE and choose the black/tan/marsala colour in the survey at the end of the campaign.
“However, first we need to reach that [stretch] goal. Each of you can help us A LOT by sharing our project and spreading the word about it. If this works, we could all soon be drinking coffee from our 16 oz. GOAT MUGS! :)”
The stretch goal is set at $350,000, which it is looking as though the project may reach it within the next few days. Potential backers have until January 3rd.
