New K-Cup Storage System

Postby CPP » Wed Nov 14, 2012 6:19 pm

Introducing the Coffee Pod Pad. http://www.coffeepodpad.com
A buddy of mine and I have been working on this for a little while and we were looking to get some honest feedback. We understand it is not for everyone but anyone with a smaller kitchen or is not interested in displaying their pods like they are artwork we think it is pretty good.

It can be mounted inside cabinet doors, under cabinets or to any flat surface.
It is currently available in black or tan, we are considering do a white one but wondering if we should consider any other colors?
Also we sell it in 3 packs so it stores 27 pods, we think that is a reasonable number of pods for a storage system, what do you think?
I’m working on getting a promotional code for SSC forum members so if anyone wanted to buy one you could get one at a 35% discount from Amazon. Once the code is active I will come back and update the post.
I guess the real reason we are asking is we have prototypes for V-cups, CBTL, and Starbucks pods and we are debating spending the money to put those into production or not.

Any and all feedback is welcomed.

Well you might want to work on your terminology. :) You are talking about "pods" but you have "K-Cups" in the picture. I assume you really mean K-Cups? If you say pod in your Amazon listing you will confuse your customers and they might order the wrong thing, which will lead to RMA's for you.

Welcome, CPP.

Vincent, I'm sure you could stuff a soft pod inside each of those holes, too, no? ;)

Thanks for the feedback Vincent, unfortunately the word K-cup is a registered trade mark for GMCR and we have had a few discussions already with them about the use of it.

Also I did get the promotional code activated in Amazon for forum members and readers. It is good for $7 off our regular pricing, so you can get a Coffee Pod Pad™ for $12.99 +S&H.

Yes, do not even put the letter "K" in the name!

Agreed. I have a pod brewer and get really annoyed when I go to look up pods or pod holders online, and half of the results are for k-cups which are a totally different animal.

That said, I'd like to find a decent POD. Right now all of my pod boxes are lined up like little soldiers on the back ledge of my stove, which is pretty precarious :o .

Again sorry about that but unfortunately GMCR is a huge beast and pretty protective over the use of K-cup. I can only image what Sweaner went through with his invention, ours only holds the darn things can’t image how aggressive they are when your product competes directly with the K-cup. “Coffee Capsule Pad” just doesn’t roll off the tongue.

I was told you can use the term K-Cup Packs and not get into trouble, Think this is quite clever ,

FWIW, I'd be interested in a version that stores Tassimo T-discs, especially if they worked with both the small coffee and large milk ones.
