I wanted to provide a quick update on the KUPILKA biomaterial blog post from a few days ago. Several of you have reached out to me asking how you can get your hands on the Kupilka products as they are currently not available in stores in the US and are hard to come by.
I have some great news. I've been talking with Michael Negele (firstname.lastname@example.org) who is the sales & marketing manager for Kupilka in Finland and he has agreed to be the point of contact for anyone in the US who would like to submit an order to buy any of the Kupilka products. The company is working hard to expand their product line to the US, but want to make sure that they choose the right types of retailers to work with - it just takes a little time.
Their pricing is quoted in Euros so you will have to do a currency converstion to get a better idea of what each product costs. To help, here is an example of the USD cost of the popular KUPILKA 21 cup:
- Kupilka 21 cup list price is €18.95 (Euros)
- According to today’s rate that is $25.86
- Shipping cost for one to three cups is €7.70 or $10.50
- Shipping for up to six cups is €13.55 or $18.50
Michael has very kindly provided me with a PDF version of their price list, but remember all the prices are in Euros and will need to be converted to USD. Kupilka can only currently accept payments via bank transfer, this is because at the moment they mainly only sell to retailers and wholesalers and they do not yet have an online store.
If you do place an order through Michael be sure to say that I sent you, there's nothing in it for me but it would be nice if he knew where you saw the information. And stay tuned for a Kupilka Giveaway on my blog in the next few weeks for your chance to win a Kupilka 21 for free!
