Camas man invents new coffee lid

Craig Bailey of Camas is the owner and founder of FoamAroma, a new design in on-the-go coffee lids.

The most basic description of Bailey's innovation is that his lid has two openings instead of one. The first one is an inverted triangular hole that's larger than the one on the usual to-go lid. It does two things: It's big enough that you don't have to sip, and it allows foam as well as the coffee to come through. Bailey says he's considering the tagline: "No foam left behind."
The second opening in the lid is on top of the triangular one, and it lets the coffee aroma find your nose as you're drinking. It also allows the coffee to cool faster.
This concept sounds rather simple and straightforward, but Bailey says it took a lot of time and brain power to get the lid just right.
It involved quite a bit of mathematical calculations to come up with the best possible angle for the triangular hole and just the right size for each opening. Bailey, a chemical engineer by degree and a project manager by profession, spent four years working on the lid in his kitchen until, at last, he finalized his design.
