We are proud to be a Kickstarter funded Product!
Jiva’s first shipment into the U.S. and quest to continue making Jiva an amazing product was made possible by the amazing staff at Kickstarter for all of their hard work and all of the risk takers, you backers out there that were willing to take a chance on us. Money raised on our first funded Kickstarter project went to helping us transition our handmade product towards machine production. During that time we also secretly developed an entire line of flavors including a delicious Hot Chocolate cube made with fair trade Colombian Cacao and our favorite sweetener; Panela during that time.
Eight months later we headed back to Kickstarter to try to get the full coffee line tested and debut our brand new line of Hot Chocolate cubes. We project included the Classic and Mocha coffee cubes from the first campaign but added Caramel, French Vanilla, and Hazelnut coffee cubes and Hot Chocolate & Caramel Hot Chocolate cubes. We also created Strong Classic that is a 20% stronger than our Classic cubes and Decaf Classic cubes for those with caffeine concerns. The money from this funded project went towards buying a packaging machine that would help us keep up with orders and bringing our full line of flavors to supermarkets and distributors worldwide.
Just as a marker of how much we have grown compare our first campaign video with our second. And if you want to really see a story of failure transition to success, and maybe slightly chuckle, maybe you can even find our very first Kickstarter failure as well.
