Over the last several years, more than one startup has tried to provide a more customized craft coffee experience. Typically that experience takes the form of a subscription service that allows coffee lovers to select hard to come by beans or even predictive algorithms that will figure what type of coffee you’ll like. But a recently funded Kickstarter is extending the customized coffee experience to include almost every facet from roast to grind to packaging.
Doers Coffee, which, as of this writing had exceeded its funding goal by more than $6000, wants to be your personal coffee roaster—all of you. Using their app or website you can choose where you want your beans to come from, whether you want single origin or a blend and the specific temperature and time of the roast. Doers will also grind the beans to your preferred consistency or pack them into K-cups or Nespresso-compatible pods for you. We’re all aware of the environmental problems caused by coffee pods though, so you can take on that moral baggage at your own risk.
