Vaska Technologies Inc.


We have developed smart-home systems that automatically replenish household consumables. Our first product is the VaskaBrew, a Wi-Fi connected dispenser for Keurig k-cups. The Vaska system continuously searches the web for the best deals and automatically reorders the consumable based on its usage rate. Our revenue comes from hardware sales and royalties on reorders. We are currently fulfilling a pilot order from Peet's Coffee and Tea.
