Proper Coffee Imperial Drip Maker - New KickStarter Campaign

Share Article

The new Imperial coffee drip takes a new twist on brewing coffee, taking 1 to 4 hours to brew at 30-45 drips per minute.

Proper Coffee turns to Kickstarter again to launch its new product

Proper Coffee is fortunate to have had a successful KickStarter with our original coffee drip maker, the Proper Coffee Cold Drip. Proper Coffee has shipped coffee brewers all around world to coffee shops, homes, and businesses, including two coffee makers prominently placed in the Mandarin Hotel in Tokyo. Proper Coffee was also fortunate to have Barrington Coffee feature our brewer and use it to serve their amazing coffee at TEDxNortheasternU. The Proper Coffee Drip was featured in Wired Magazine’s November 2013 issue as part of their short-list of connoisseur coffee-crafters. Since KickStarter was key to help launch the Proper Coffee Cold Drip in 2012, and after a year of development and refinement, we felt the time was right to come back and introduce and seek funding for our new Imperial Proper Coffee Drip.

Proper Coffee has turned to KickStarter for its innovative way to help small startups raise funds to kick start production and allow people to propel their dreams of creativity.

If you haven’t heard of KickStarter it’s the world’s largest funding platform for new creative projects. “This will be our second KickStarter for a product launch and find it an extremely innovative way to help people bring their creative side and ideas, live to the masses” said Bill Abbe, CEO of Proper Coffee.

Proper Coffee’s goal is to help fund an in-house manufacturing area dedicated for the new Imperial Proper Coffee Drip along with the original Proper Coffee Cold Drip coffee maker. The plan is to manufacture and hand-assemble each and every piece in-house at our Michigan facility. This will bring production costs down and also increase quality and production speed.

The Imperial Proper Coffee Drip is a blend of Japanese old-style coffee making with a modern look and feel. We strive to produce a coffee drip that will achieve finer control over bringing out the true quality and characteristics of the finished bean. Accurately time and brew your favorite bean flavor characteristic every time!

The process can take 1 to 4 hours at a recommended 40 to 45 drips per minute rate. The time and drip rate depends on how strong you want the taste. In our tests, using the best 3rd wave coffee brands produces a sweet, flavorful coffee with a nice caffeine kick while avoiding the acidity common to hot-brew methods.

Using the custom developed peristaltic pump you can finely tune the speed of the brew, which allows you to extract the most body and essence out of the coffee. Speed it up or slow it down to create your own style of brew and flavor. The coffee brewer runs on a typical 120v and 240V wall outlet with the supplied power adapter and inline power switch; and it produces 16 oz of condensed coffee, allowing for 2 to 3 servings per brew.

The Imperial takes a new twist on brewing coffee. Not only does it brew coffee by a slow measured drip, but it also recirculates the coffee from main brewing vessel. This creates a whole new brewing concept and characteristic that allows for more water to coffee grind contact over a longer period of time.
