Hey Troy,

Thanks for your note, could you elaborate a bit more on why you think that there is a challenge with getting a new coffee cup design off the ground? Just wanted to get more insight on this.

Hi Kate,

I haven't started consumer testing, but I have gained some feedback from colleagues at work (and family members) who do like the cup design and the material that I am suggesting that it's made out of (PLA).

The changes that I foresee for the manufacturing process would be changes to the moulding design used by manufacturers via plastic injection moulding process. There are quite a few manufacturers in China that utilize this process, and some that even have experience working with PLA materials.
