If you thought there wasn’t any more room in the coffee industry for another innovation, think again. Meet Viora. Viora was developed when the founders expressed their personal dissatisfaction with the current coffee to-go experience and decided to do something about it. What was missing? The convenience of coffee on-the-run in a portable cup was lacking the tangible and sensuous experience of sipping from a ceramic mug. So they decided to solve this problem. The result? A TWIST on the blah, sensory-deprived, to-go paper cup lid to make it more like of an indulgent, sensuous experience like the Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden. According to the product’s website: “the Viora Lid drinks like a cup, unlocks flavor, and eliminates annoying splashes”.
Personal dissatisfaction breeds innovation. Notice your own frustrations and inspirations, and think, “How could I incorporate these lessons into my brand’s experience?” And remember – there’s always room for a better, brighter and more efficient – everything.
