WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ember Technologies, the company that exists to make the simple act of eating and drinking more gratifying through temperature control, announces $8.5 million of funding to date. Its flagship product, available in select Starbucks stores, online at www.Starbucks.com/shop and at www.EmberTech.com, is the only temperature adjustable mug that keeps coffee or tea at a consistent temperature.
Ember, which will forever revolutionize the way people enjoy their hot beverages, has caught the eye of leaders across industries. Ember's long list of investors includes CEOs, CFOs, attorneys, bankers, professional athletes, producers, directors, and musicians. Singers/songwriters Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas have signed onto the venture, along with Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers, NFL players Ndamukong Suh and Prince Amukamara, and Former MLB pitcher Ted Lilly to name a few. Available today at both Starbucks stores and online, consumers are now able to experience what these gurus have known all along.
"I chose to invest in Ember because the idea is so simple, yet so big," said multi-platinum, Grammy nominated singer and songwriter, Demi Lovato. "Ember lets coffee lovers like me customize my drinking temperature and then keeps it there so every sip is perfect. And the best part is… Coffee is just the beginning. The future product roadmap is amazing."
Ember's patented temperature-control technology combines a phase change cooling system with an active heating system, creating the world's most precise temperature controlled mug. Rather than pouring too-hot-to-drink coffee into a paper cup or travel mug, then impatiently waiting until the temperature falls to a comfortable drinking level (and soon thereafter, to an unpleasant lukewarm), Ember will rapidly cool your hot coffee or tea down to a chosen temperature and will hold it at that exact temperature for hours on end.
"I started Ember to solve a simple yet universal challenge faced by coffee and tea drinkers everywhere - how can I keep my hot beverage at the ideal temperature for as long as I want," said Ember Technologies Founder and CEO Clay Alexander. "The release of Ember is seven years in the making, and it's inspiring to see the caliber of investors we have attracted."
Ember plans to revolutionize the way the world eats and drinks. Founded in 2012 by inventor and serial entrepreneur Clayton Alexander, Ember has built an incredible team of world-class product designers and engineers formally with Nokia, Microsoft and Amazon Labs, with big plans to transform the drinkware and dishware industry.
