Description

QUICK BEVERAGE CUP Filed Oct, 17. 1928 a INVENTOR Wizammrizmer il "ziizami Patented July 8, 1930 UNITED STATES WILLIAM MORTIMER WILLIAMS, OF HIGH BRIDGE, NEW JERSEY QUICK-BEVERAGE our Application filed October 17, 1928. Serial No. 313,168.

The present invention relates to an improvement in beverage making, and more especially to the use of beverage concentrates wherein the introduction of water, hot or 6 cold, dissolves the concentrate and makes a quick and complete beverage of my desired kind.

Another object is to provide a container, with which the beverageconcentrate may be associated in a sanitary manner, marked with the name of the kind of concentrate carried by the container, for ready reference and use.

Another object is to provide a plurality of paper cups or containers. of waterproof construction, capable of being charged with desired concentrates, nested within each other for compactness and protection of contents, such nested plurality of containers to be sold in nested packages, ready for beverage making, marked to indentify contents,

9 wrapped in suitable paper or other wrapping material. Nor is it deemed necessary to show the container as containers for this purpose are old and well known.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a sanitary closed container having a beverage concentrate therein of known strength, the strength of the various concentrates being in proportion to the liquid volumetric capacity of the associate liquid receiving portion of the container, so that when solvent liquid to the capacity of the con-. tainer is introduced therein, a pleasing tasteful beverage is produced.

These and other various modifications will be apprehended as the herein description proceeds, and it is obvious that various modifications may be made without departing from the spirit of the herein disclosure, or the scope of the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Flg. 1 1s a sectional view of a characteristic container having a charge of beverage concentrate therein;

Fig. 2 discloses a plurality of containers in nested, compact assembly;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view similar to Fig. 1 having another form of modified concentrate therein;

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the concentrate sealing and protecting means;

Fig. 5 is a transverse section thereof; and

Fig. 6 is a plan view of a modified sealing and protecting means.

In Fig. 1 there is disclosed a sectional View of a container, preferably in the form of a paper cup 1, made to withstand hot water. The cup may be made with its walls tapering so that a plurality of cups may be nested, as shown in Fig. 2, and when in such nested condition, will provide a spaced chamber 2 between the bottoms of the nested group of cups. Into the space 2 is introduced a sufficient amount of beverage concentrate'3, Figs. 1 and 3, such concentrate being in the form of a fluid substance, poured into the container, as at 3, Fig. 1, while hot, and thereafter permitting the same to harden therein. One desirable mixture for this purpose consists of chocolate, confectioners'sugar and dried milk in suitable proportions Which, when admixed with a small amount of water and creamed, is introduced as described, and permitted to set. In setting this concentrate will adhere firmly to the sides and bottom of the zontainer. After-setting, the concentrate may be protected against sticking to the next associate cup, when nested, by introducing therein a sealing disk 4, preferably of pressed paraffined paper, which protects the concentrate from adhering to the bottom of the next nested cup, protects the concentrate from contamination and providesa readily removable lid or cover therefor.

As a means for readily removing the cap or sealing lid 4 from the concentrate,'to expose it to the action of a liquid, for use, a length of string 5 is provided, one end of i which is firmly attached to one side of the cap 4 for the easy lifting of one side thereof,

,at the start of removal, and the other end is provided with a pulling tab 6 which bears thereon the name of beverage to be made from the concentrate as well as any printed directions for use.

Anyi'orm or kind of concentrate of the nature above described may be used.

In some forms of beverage making concentrate it may be desirable to maintain the aggregates thereof in powdered form, either compressed in the cup or in loose uncompressed form. Such concentrates might then consist of mixtures of sugar and powdered milk with either tea or cocoa or sugar, coloring matter and fruit flavors in concentrate or powdered state.

In this latter event, these dry pulverulent concentrates 3 are placed in the container 1,

.Fig. 3, and are formed at the bottom of the cup and are there held by a pressed flanged paper sealing means 4, Fig. 5, which sealing means is formed of a blank having an upturned self-formed locking flange 7 thereon which flange, when the cup is pressed to a seat upon the concentrate, Fig. 3, wedges against the sides of the container 1 and firmlyholds the pulverulent contents. against loss and spilling, and sanitarily seals the concentrate in until the cap is removed by means of the removing means 56 which are as described for Fig. 1.

In most cases the cap 4 may be made of a dense pressed paper, impregnated with paraifin and its contact or under side, which is in contact with the concentrates, coated with a dry powdered starch to facilitate parting the cap from its concentrate when desired to use, at the same time to protect against incidental moisture, and loss'of contents or flavor.

A cap, as in Fig. 6, has been found entirely practical and is made as prevlously described for Figs. 1, 3', 4 and 5, except that a substitute integrally formed extension 5 with appurtenant tab 6 is formed thereon at one edge thereof, ofi the flange 7, and, as in the string and tab construction previously described, permits of the nesting of the containers or cups, without interference thereof, such pulling means being located at one side of the sealing caps, for this purpose and, further, to permit of the removal force being applied near or at the edge of said cap, and it has been found that the caps are very easily removed when the pulling is started at the ca edge.

hen the cups are nested, as in Fig. 2, the tags or identity tabs are external of the nested package or group, and the user may select the desired beverage cup at will.

In use, nested packages of like or assorted unlike concentrates may be sold and selected as desired for use.

It will further be obvious that I have provided a means for carrying a bulk of beverage concentrate in a single package, Fig. 2,

which is transportable as such, is readily and quickly made into individual, satisfying, complete beverage, is sanitarily kept and is of unlimited keeping qualities and convenlence.

lVhat I desire to claim is:

A package of nested frustoeonical drinking cups each having a closed bottom, said bottoms being vert cally spaced from each other with the cups in nested position, each cup having a removable partition fitting tightly in the cup in spaced relation to the bottom thereof to provide a receptacle for a drink flavoring substance between the respective partition and bottom, each cup having a flexible strand attached to its partition, a pull tab at the end of each strand, each strand extending up and over the edge of the cup to permit the tab to hang down on the exterior of the cup, said tab bearing indicia identifying the drink flavoring substance in the bottom of the respective cup.

Signed at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, this 16th day of October, A. D. 1928.

WILLIAM MORTIMER WILLIAMS.
