We introduced you guys to Crowd Supply last week, Portland’s next generation crowdfunded e-commerce that picks up where Kickstarter and other platforms leave off but today they launched something that we thought you might like as well. As of today you can help support Bucket’s, The Portland Press, a french press for your Mason jar, manufactured in Oregon using raw materials from the USA, and backed with a lifetime warranty. Whether we want to admit it, us Portlanders have a strange obsession with Mason jars and this product is definitely going to fuel it even more.
Bryan Kappa and Rob Story, founders of Bucket, were aware that home coffee-making equipment has come a long way, but were not thrilled about the fact a typical french press is still assembled from plastic and delicate glass in an overseas factory. So, they decided to improve your coffee making experience with quality and materials that you can relate to.
The Portland Press is a simple, clean, practical design made out of fundamental materials: glass, wool, steel, wood. Most importantly, the Mason jar is easy to replace if it breaks, and the rest of the Portland Press is backed with a lifetime warranty.
Although, The Portland Press was designed by Bucket, the components are made by a variety of people with different backgrounds and their favorite part of it all is telling those people’s stories. Portland Stamping & Manufacturing, Spooltown, Creekside Fiber Mill, Puddleduck Farm, B&L Wood Creations, Northwest Spring Manufacturing, Oregon Screw Machine Products, and Tualatin Valley Workshop are just some of the companies they are working with.
Help the guys at Bucket continue making great quality, locally made, sustainable products and SUPPORT THE PROJECT WITH A PLEDGE. We know you like coffee and we know you like Mason jars, so you will love The Portland Press.
