Don’t ever be enamored by what something sells for. It’s more important what you get to keep in your pocket.

$200,000 for 25%$200,000 for 50%Kevin Harrington

Entrepreneur: Michael Schiavone

 Michael Schiavone founder of Caffeindicator, presented to the Sharks the method he had developed for testing whether coffee is a regular or decaf. 

Caffeindicator test whether coffee is regular or decaf by using is a litmus-like indicator, usually the main use of litmus test to see if a solution is acidic or basic. But this is not a single product, because the founder’s idea is to get these indicators printed on the artificial sweetener or sugar packets that you can find at the restaurant, coffee shop. It would have been a good idea for distribution since it takes advantage of how these packets are already ubiquitous.

Unfortunately, after its Shark Tank debut, this product still hasn’t hit the market, even years later. At the show, Michael demonstrated a mock prototype. The entrepreneur hadn’t even estimated the cost of such an add-on feature or even approached the sweetener packet manufacturers.
