Coffee Joulies – Magic Beans For Your Drink

Coffee Joulies

Coffee Joulies are magic beans that keep your coffee (or any other hot beverage) at the perfect temperature.

First, they absorb extra thermal energy in your coffee when its served too hot, cooling it down to a drinkable temperature three times faster than normal. Next, they release that stored energy back into your coffee keeping it in the right temperature range twice as long.

Coffee Joulies are currently available as a project on Kickstarter, but with the interest that they’ve already generated, they shouldn’t have any problem getting the funding they need to become a real product.

Get a set of five now for just $40, and you’ll even save yourself 20% off the final retail cost.

There are a million different coffee gadgets and gizmos to help you get the most from your beans, but when it comes to tea, there are only a select few ways to brew that really stand out.

Norm Design’s new Tea Pot is one of those, with a cleverly crafted glass kettle that features an integrated tea ball that can be pulled out of the way when it’s time to pour.

…It’s Movie Monday: Johnny Cupcakes Cupcake Cannon?

Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour

To celebrate his roots, Johnny Cupcakes is recreating what got his company started: Slinging wrinkled up, gas scented t-shirts out of his crusty suitcase while on tour with his band.

The tour will take him all across the country, and along the way, he’ll stop at respected businesses, including art galleries, boutiques, bakeries, toy shops, and more, and giving away free treats and surprises at stops along the way.

One of the recent surprises was at Kamp Grizzly in Portland, Oregon, where he busted out a Cupcake Cannon and fired it at willing volunteers. Thankfully, they documented the whole thing in stunningly slow motion, so that you too can share in the joy that a Cupcake Cannon can bring:
