How many filters will our filter dispenser hold?
Our filter dispenser will hold a stack of about 30-40 filters. That's 30-40 cups of coffee.
Don't refillable & reusable pods already exist?
Yes, refillable/reusable pods exist. The problem is they require a messy clean up. In fact, most people who try them end up going back to single-use plastic pods. Since the introduction of reusable pods, we've only seen single-use pod sales go up. If current refillable pods were a good alternative, shouldn't we have seen single-use sales go down? Our mission is to end the need for single-use coffee pods once and for all.
Colors savepod will come in?
Our pod maker will be available in Slate Black & Cool White. We will be adding more colors to match more kitchens as time goes on.
Are savepod filters biodegradable or compostable or both..?
Our filters are both 100% biodegradable & compostable. The only waste with savepod is the biodegradable and compostable filter and used ground coffee which is actually good and acts as a fertilizer for the planet. No harmful waste caused by savepods.
Is savepod's coffee storage "drawer" compartment air-tight?
Yes, our coffee storage drawer has airtight seals on it to block out air and keep your coffee fresh. No one likes stale coffee. The prototype you see in the pictures is not what the final coffee drawer will look like. The final product (what you'll get) will have an airtight close to keep coffee fresh.
How much coffee does our drawer hold?
Our coffee drawer will hold roughly 150 grams of coffee. This is enough to make approximately 12-13 savepods. How one goes through 12-13 cups of coffee is different person to person & household to household.
What type of coffee could I use with savepod?
You can use ANY ground coffee your heart desires. That is the beauty of savepod, you have unlimited variety to choose from. Almost all pre-ground coffee will work well, medium grind size works best.
How many pods will I save?
If you are part of a 3 person household, and each of you drink 2 cups a day, that's 6 pods per day. Multiply 6 by 365 days per year and you get 2,190 pods. So the average savepod device will save more than 2,000 plastic pods per year. Some will save less, but some will save even more.
How much money will I save?
Let's use the same 3 person household, each person drinking 2 cups per day. That's 2,190 pods per year. Saving roughly 40¢-50¢ per pod that's: $876 - $1,095 saved per year. Over 10 years that more than $10k!
Why wouldn't I switch to savepod?
You wouldn't switch to savepod if you enjoy paying upwards of 8X the price for worse tasting coffee. You shouldn't get savepod if you want to continue wasting unnecessary plastic for each cup of coffee you make. Lastly, fresher, better, and more variety of coffee doesn't interest you. Anyone else should strongly consider switching to savepod :)
