eBOX update to our supporters #1,


As you know, we did not get the full amount of funds expected for our Indiegogo project. This is the reason that it has taken a bit longer to get the product to full completion in time. We have been working very hard with our partners abroad to get the eBOX launched and we have just about accomplished the many required steps necessary for its delivery.


At this point we are at the final testing stage and will be shipping the machine to you in October. Our first full container is scheduled to arrive in the US on October 20th, just in time for the holidays!


We thank you for your patience and if for any reason you cannot wait, please let us know and you will get a full refund.


The machine will also be available through our website www.podhead.com . We  appreciate your support and patience.


Sorry for the delay.
Sincerely,
Christian Bezamat & Gianni Spinazzola


We want to thank you all for your support to this campaign. If you still want to purchase the eBOX, just go to  PODhead.com and reserve your machine today

for October, 2014 delivery!

Sincerely,
The eBOX-PODhead Team

That’s because the eBox uses coffee pods made with paper – not plastic. Paper-based pods are cheaper to produce and are very friendly to the environment. It’s an established fact that plastic will sit in garbage dumps and landfills for decades causing harm to the planet.  On the other hand, paper is comparatively harmless and coffee grinds actually help the earth. However, those coffee grinds can’t get into the ground and help the soil if they’re trapped in a plastic cup. Taking all of these facts into consideration on top of the fact that plastic coffee capsule cost more to make than paper coffee pod,  it’s easy to understand how the eBox can save you money on every cup of coffee you brew while helping our planet now and for generations to come.

With the eBox you not only get a perfect cup of coffee every time, your coffee will cost you about half of what you’re paying now. On average, coffee brewed with the eBox costs roughly 32 cents per cup which is about half the price of the popular plastic-based coffee capsules used in most single-brew machines today like the Keurig.  So cup by cup and day by day you’re saving money and our environment all at once.

First of all, we would like to thank our community of fans for encouraging us to take this big step to create something unprecedented in the SINGLE-SERVE coffee industry. After more than three years of conceptualizing, designing and building fully operable prototypes, we are ready to move forward and need the funds to do so! 100% of the funds will be used for the tooling costs and the first round of the eBOX machine production. We cannot do it without you. 

Offering this project directly to you via indiegogo enables us to cut out distributors and retailers, as well as additional marketing expenses.

You can be one of the first to get your hands on this innovative machine for less than $150! This is much less than the retail price. The cost of eBOX is minimal when considering the future savings. We are totally convinced that you will appreciate its convenience and quality of the coffee it produces, not to mention its Eco-friendliness.

The eBOX has a double standard feature unlike any other single-serve coffee machine on the market, one for espresso and one for coffee. Take advantage of our indiegogo offer now before this opportunity expires.

Not only will you save money with this amazing indiegogo crowd funding coffee machine deal, in a flash, you will watch it pay off.

No matter how many cups of coffee you drink per day, you will spend less on coffee pods and at the same time reduce plastic landfill waste by 100%!  Enlarge Saving Chart

Fund the eBOX now and soon you will quickly brew and enjoy countless cups of coffee.

In collaboration with engineer, Alessandro Tonelli at CBT in Italy, we embarked on a three yearlong journey to build our signature coffee machine. Together we applied our focus and dedication to coffee lovers of quality, convenience and a deep respect for our fragile environment. We built a beautifully designed and extremely functional single serve coffee machine for coffee drinkers to simply enjoy their coffee the way it is supposed to be without the guilt. We believe that we have constructed more than just a coffee machine, we have crafted a timeless double standard brewing machine. 


The vision of the eBOX came about by observing the irresponsibility of certain single serve coffee companies and the assortment of machines they produce that only work with their specifically designed plastic or aluminum pods. Billions of single-serve plastic and aluminum containers are sold every year, resulting in a tremendous amount of harm to our environment. To top it off, even though the plastic used is polypropylene, a less-toxic plastic, growing evidence proves that when subjected to heat, all plastics leach chemicals that can interfere with hormonal development. 

                               Health and environment: A closer look at plastics

                 

No company today gives the consumer a competitive opportunity to buy a reliable machine that brews an excellent cup of coffee or espresso at the right price. More importantly, the current single-serve products as shown above, do not respect the environment. 

After all, the earth is the only planet we have!

It was that same philosophy for our environmental concern that inspired us to make our first functional single-serve coffee pod machine. Quality and respect for the customer and of the environment is the inspiration and motivation behind PODhead.com.

All the initial work is done! We have our prototypes and we are ready to start to mass-produce the machines! If all goes according to plan, the eBOX should be ready to be shipped by the end of July 2014.

                          We have weeded out the problems on past designs and prototypes and now have everything we need, except the funding, to complete this project within our set deadline.

When it comes to quality control we are borderline obsessive. We offer a 2-year warranty and service so that you feel comfortable helping us with the project and buying a coffee pod machine from us. In our belief, the most important aspect to any company is how it takes care of its customers ... and we do!!!

The coffee market is in desperate need of a dependable, environmentally friendly single-serve pod-brewing machine for both coffee and/or espresso.

We need your collective funds for the tooling costs and for the mass production of the eBOX single-serve coffee/espresso pod machine. Once we reach our goal, production will begin immediately and soon after, the eBOX will be available for distribution.

Please help us to fund our project!
