Jiva Coffee Cubes don’t look like the passion educing lifestyle ingredient that percolate over lovers of java. The smell of a fresh roast or the hand pressed love that goes into a French Press are just a few of times when euphoric senses can take over. But sometimes there just isn’t room in the day to make a fresh brew, or you’re headed out with only “fake-coffee-shops” around. That’s where Jiva Coffee Cubes come in.
Using raw cane sugar the company makes coffee cubes using Single Estate Colombian coffee that’s gluten free, vegan, kosher, non-GMO, and fair trade. Think of it as combining sugar and coffee into a compact little block. Drop a Jiva Coffee Cube into your favorite Star Wars coffee mug, pour some hot water over it, and voila high-end delicious coffee to be consumed quickly and anywhere you are.
The company exceeded Kickstarter goal expectations by 5.4 times when they first launched their coffee and hot chocolate cubes. Offering delicious new flavors and packages the funding was used to buy new equipment in order to get into stores. But they realized a problem quickly afterward, there still was a need for coffee cubes that didn’t use sugar.
Sugar is an optional ingredient for many java drinkers but with sugar cane being a natural binding agent in Jiva Coffee Cubes those that like their coffee black were at a loss. Now they’ve launched a second Kickstarter campaign to bring Jiva Black Coffee Cubes to every household. Still without artificial ingredients, the product extension now reduces the amount of sugar used to (less than a gram) keep the cubes together.
You can get a pack of four cubes of any flavor or two black cubes over on their project page.
