“How might we use coffee to bring people together while they are both outdoors and out of their comfort zone”
RUGBY & COFFEE
As I reminisced about the rugby matches I had to stand through outside in the rain and snow to watch my brother play, I thought to myself “What’s better than a warm cup of coffee to bring people together on a chilly Sunday at your child’s game?”
I began to think there was a potential design opportunity for Millennial parents with young children who participate in outdoors sports and activities. I then extended my target market to also includes picnickers, Tailgaters, fishers, campers, vacations, play dates, and other outdoors activities.
After a survey and some interviews with my target market, I learnt they had concerns and needs I had not thought about quite yet.
“Brio: Italian for vivacity, liveliness, and wit”
“Small place to hold powder cream and sugar”
“Different cup sizes”
“Easy to use and tastes great” “Battery operated and no need for a power source”
“Free-standing so no need for a table” “Spot to hold coffee and tea” “Dishwasher safe”
“A caddy for extra cups”
