It is going well so far. Goal is 20000 euro and it is over 40000 euro so far.

The coffee/milk/sugar ressources are a big must to its succes I would say. I love simple games with dept that has few but beautiful good quality components

Seems like it's going to a joke / comment that lives with this game forever. Which doesn't bother me personally too much (I am happy to laugh at myself) but of course the innuendo goes a bit against our company values at Quality Beast, in the sense that it could be taken as offensive or unthoughtful.

That aside, I do find it pretty ironic considering that we spent literally months of solid, healthy – at times even heated – discussion throughout the team to land on an appropriate name. And not only does it have this innuendo buried in it (for some languages / cultures) but it's also very hard to pronounce correctly for our German speaking audience, which is one of our company's largest markets.

Oh well, live and learn!

(Perhaps it would be fun to post a list of all the original name ideas here on BGG? Could be interesting...)

I've sent you a Geekmail on the topic. I don't find it useful to talk about these things publicly though I am normally an advocate of public information.
