If you’ve ever commuted by train, bus, or bike or regularly hike with your dogs, then this genius new hybrid to-go container will no doubt solve one of life’s pressing problems—by combining your water bottle and travel coffee mug in one.

No longer do we have to literally juggle beverage containers while trying to channel an octopus, or choose between life-giving caffeine and hydration. The H2Joe launched this week on Kickstarter, and is projected to be delivered into our thirsty hands by October 2019.

The brainchild of consumer product designers Brett Moody and John Anthony, the H2Joe is a reusable, hybrid, waste-less, and genius sign of the times, while taking up less space in your bag.

“My wife Dorothy and I are avid coffee drinkers,” said H2Joe co-founder Brett Moody. “For years, we’ve complained about having to fill two bottles each morning—one for coffee and one for water. Dorothy disliked having to juggle two bottles as she made her way out the door. I often forgot my water bottle altogether but had no problem refilling my coffee mug all day long. By the time I got home, I’d be caffeinated, dehydrated, and feeling guilty that I didn’t make the time to drink water.”

The H2Joe has two separate, detachable coffee and water chambers that each hold 12 ounces of liquid—the lower compartment is vacuum-sealed and keeps coffee hot for up to six hours, and the insulated upper compartment keeps 12 ounces of water cold for up to eight hours, simultaneously.

But the real genius of the design is that, in addition to killing your morning commute double-fist-juggling forever, the H2Joe bottle has a dual-opening lid that allows you to drink either water or coffee through the top spouts without opening the container—or even needing to use two hands.

“When we designed H2Joe, we wanted it to be easy to transport in one hand and have a natural feel,” says co-founder John Anthony. “After several prototypes and designs, we are finally ready to show the world how H2Joe can change your life.”
