A revolutionary product that is the result of Danish Design innovation and out of the box ingenuity, FabriKators a small group of dedicated out-of-the-box engineers, designers and prototyping experts from Denmark recently announced the launch of Grums, their latest product. GRUMS (Danish for grounds) is a French press coffee grounds collector designed to make the tedious task of cleaning the French press much easier. The Grums project in currently in need of funding to proceed into the next phase of development, a crowd funding campaign has been launched on Kickstarter with a funding goal of at least $20,000 to be raised within the next 30 days.
The Grums French press coffee grounds collector is a deceivingly simple yet brilliant solution to a problem many coffee lovers have faced while brewing coffee in their French Press coffee maker – the cleaning the coffee grounds that collect in the bottom of the press. Grums is a “cup” that collects the coffee grounds for easy disposal while keeping the carafe clean. The Fabrikators team’s concept is to develop the perfect holder for the grounds that can be fastened to the plunger for easy disposal and cleaning.
The concept of Grums took roots a couple of years ago and the team has been working on it since. the basic idea of developing a “cup” may seem simple enough, however, a great deal of engineering, research, and testing has gone into the making of a solution that will not only save time and effort but will also be better for the environment in the long term. By collecting the grounds in Grum’s users will be able to save water needed to rinse the carafe and plunger, as well as collect the coffee grounds to use as compost for plants later.
The Grums “cup” has been developed to be easy to install and would require only a few simple steps to be functional. The Fabrikators team has been working on the project for the last two years, which includes developing and testing a number of prototypes. Finally, the perfected prototype has been created and tested intensively and the team is ready to go into the next phase of development, which is to find the right material that will be both durable and effective. This is where the crowdfunding campaign comes in!
The fund collected from the crowdfunding campaign will allow the team to work out the remaining kinks and eventually start production. The team is offering a variety of different rewards and perks to reward the generosity of those who support the campaign.
