Almond Cow Raises Over $150,000 in Fundraising Campaign
On January 12, Peter and Brett of Almond Cow set a modest goal of $10,000 on their Kickstarter page to bring their product–that promises 30 second almond milk–to life. 30 days later, 1,143 backers pledged $161,965 to bring Almond Cow closer to reality, more than 10 times the initial goal.
The product, which is described as an “adaptation of a blender in the same way a coffee grinder is,” is created for almonds and other tree nuts, and the process is as follows:
“It uses a durable stainless steel blade that is custom designed for dicing almonds efficiently and circulating water rapidly through the vortex it creates. As water passes through the almond pulp, it picks up the nutrients present in the almonds and flows out of the filter cup. The entire process takes 30 seconds and leaves you with 1.3 liters of delicious and ready to drink almond milk. It grinds the nuts and makes the milk, just like a coffee maker / grinder combination.”
The only preparation needed with Almond Cow is the soaking of almonds for four hours or overnight, and any preferred flavors or sweeteners, such as vanilla or dates, can also be added. Production is set for mid-February, with delivery estimated to be in April of this year. To find out more about the product, you can visit the Kickstarter page here.
