Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Coffee is always more enjoyable if it’s the correct temperature. Too hot and it burns your mouth. Too cold and, well, it’s just cold mud in a mug.

Coffee Joulies were invented to solve both problem. They look like large polished stainless steel coffee beans and are about the size of an ice cube. You put two or three in your mug and pour your coffee over them and the non-toxic liquid inside the shell absorbs excess heat to cool down your coffee to a perfect drinking temperature. As your coffee cools below the temperature of the liquid inside the Coffee Joulies, heat is then transfered back into your coffee. This two-stage process works to ensure that your coffee maintains it’s perfect drinking temperature longer, making for a more enjoyable drinking experience.

Coffee Joulies first appeared on the website Kickstarter, where the creators were asking for 240 orders of $40 or more to fund the $9,500 retooling necessary for a flatware manufacturer in Mexico to setup their factory to mass produce the item. The concept was so appealing that they’ve already received over $123,000 in orders!

Their website joulies.com is currently down, but I’m sure it will be up soon.

Their pitch video from the Kickstarter posting is below.
