The colors of Autumn will be pink and violet in different tones. We are going to show some transparent pink and pinky options here and will decide about the standard pink tones soon. The violet colors will be introduced in another post. What´s your favorite pink? We like the helio and the fox light very much.

Attached we provide different options for the mat metal finish (lids & adapters possible) and their characteristics. DLC & INOX are also possible as a glossy version, all others only mat.
DLC = DIAMOND - LIKE - CARBON: A very hard, diamond-like thin film high-tech surface which can be applied on stainless steel or titanium. It´s the most valuable and durable coating we offer - either as glossy or matte finish. Amazing but expensive. Between very dark grey and black. We can´t reach deep, deep black here.
INOX MAT: Stainless Steel special matte blasted. A very luxury and stressless stainless steel version, easy to clean but different from the grinder surfaces.
INOX BLACK: Stainless Steel special matte blasted and decorative Black Nickel on top, Very nice and much cheaper than DLC. Real Dark Black color, high saturation.
ALUMINIUM BLACK: Blasted and anodized or hard anodized. Similar to INOX BLACK but not that deep black. Will be the standard for upcoming black adapters. Cheapest of the coated versions. Other colors (like red, green, blue, brown) possible on demand. Very smooth.
Different Glass Adapter Options Mat - DLC Black - INOX Mat - INOX Black - Aluminium Black
As for the higher demand, the existing grinder design and the better options with a famous glass company in CZ, we are able now to switch or add the SQUARE Glass Hopper for the NEW Eureka Mignon grinder. We will update all info here soon. The colors, the surfaces and the quality will be different from the round glass as for technical reasons. When you can turn the glass, the surfaces and options are always better than those of a square mould.
As the NEW Mignon and its hopper is bigger compared to the MIGNON, we can´t use the same square hopper for both models. We will start with the square glass hopper for the improved New Mignon models where we can already see nine different variants, available in many colors. Most of the problems of the MIGNON 1 generation were solved with the new model so that we can see real improvements here, especially for espresso coffee where many of us know that the engine stopped when the ground coffee was too fine. For this much better Mignon, it is meaningful to have the TORR SQ Hopper for this little machine soon.
See picture attached to get an impression but the final design at the adapter side will be slightly different because we need to mount the glass more easily to keep the prices of the glass hopper in balance compared to the grinder price. The glass adapter is expected to be a Mignon Filling funnel without glass attached. We will also have different colors with the 250 SQ glass. Standard lids and adapter will be made from hard anodized aluminium - standard color of the metal parts will be black matte.
Glass Colors: CRYSTAL, Amber, Violet, Black - PREORDER SHOP
There is a new compatibility list available - 3/19 - we added the Fiorenzato as there are 2 different FIO glass adapters available. The FIO 4 works for the small Fiorenzato F4, the FIO 1 for all other more professional Fiorenzato grinder models like F63, F64, F71, F83 - the bigger Fiorenzato are beautiful fine with the 600 Glass Hopper as the grinders are really good but the 1.5 KG Hoppers are very big, especially for Speciality Coffee and home use.
There are some new CRY Glass Designs available for the Autumn/Winter collection in the next time to expand the Crystal Glass Hopper range. We started with the Designs Bubbles and Classic Optics, after that we have tested the Spiral optics which was accepted very much by our customers. Also, Bulls-Eye Optics sells faster than expected. Now, both Designs are already in the new batch. We made tests with the designs Waffle Optics and the Optics Fine Stripes which are also in our programme now as they look fabulous. Most of these designs will be only available with the Crystal range but let´s see where we will end up. For sure, not all models will work with colours and all colours. The 1300 size will not be available in all Designs, and we will avoid the standard Bubbles here for sure because it´s a little out of control.

Bohemia Glass is famous for hundreds of years. Bohemia is a historical country of central Europe, and it was part of Czechoslovakia. Since 1993 it has formed elements of the Czech Republic. As for the long tradition and the well-known name, we call our glass “Bohemia Glass” now because we produce the glass in the Czech Republic where we can get the quality we need as for the long and still existing tradition in glass making. In the end, Bohemia Glass is Czech Glass, which means for you that you will get the best glass quality available adapted to the demand for our products and made by famous Czech Glass companies. We will provide more details about our glass, the glass hoppers and the handmade production soon. We will show the production processes, and we will tell you about the quality and the passion you need to get these extraordinary products. All our new productions are Bohemia Glass / Czech Glass now. More to come soon.
We are busy to produce new glass, new sizes, new patterns for the upcoming season A/W 2019 - more to come soon…
There are many Mahkonig TWIN grinders in the market, and we are busy with some individual hoppers for this baby. Until the 600 slim models will be ready, you can be sure that the standard 300 Glass Hopper is an excellent chance to get a perfect match with the TWIN, especially when it comes to spaces where the height might be an issue. More to come soon…
New coffee grinders and coffee grinder concepts need different hopper concepts, and it will be a challenge for sure. We will start to list the etzMAX grinders (New Models) from Liechtenstein soon to our Portfolio, and I guess you will like those grinders with its excellent concept and design as much as we do. We expect the matching GLASS for etzMAX after the summer break in autumn.
The etzMAX grinders are available as a LIGHT, MEDIUM and PLUS model for different volumes. You can choose each model either as a grind-by-time, or grind-by-weight model. The clean, industrial design grinder comes in the colors Black or Silver - M and P models also in RAW Aluminium. Standard Hoppers can hold 200g or 1KG of coffee and can be switched fast and easy. The whole grinder concept is modular and easy to service and clean without tools.
You can switch the grinder to a SINGLE-DOSING grinder with a unique device as the retention is very low (>0.8g) at all. The etzMAX is a grind-on-demand grinder with small conical burrs and a perfect and easy-to-use grind-adjustment. The conic burrs offer a life-span of approx. 1500-2000 KG of coffee using the standard burrs set. Due to the 32mm conic burrs and the slow RPM this grinder enables an output of 4-5,5g / sec. Etzinger also offers a wide range of useful accessories and parts for exclusive and individual use. The grinders are not that cheap, but the concept and build quality make them one of the best grinders in the market. The etzMAX grinders can be used for advanced Home Baristas and also for High Volume Bars and coffee shops if you decide for the Plus model that comes with a cooling system to manage peaky rush-hours.
We expect the first batch of the new grinders to appear in approx. 6 weeks - if you want to be one of the first to get one of the new models, just drop a note. Further info and details about these great grinders will appear soon.
We are happy to see more and more orders of TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers with black metal parts or at least with black lids. The standard black parts are made from aluminium, anodized matte black; for the luxury parts, we use the DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon / similar to Titanium but harder) coatings which is very hard and durable. The medium range between aluminium and DLC is the Chrome Black now which is more sturdy and more beautiful than the powder coating surface we used before. All surfaces can be produced in matte or glossy black depending on your personal taste or the matching grinder.
Other surfaces we can produce on demand: Gold Plated INOX - GPI, Copper, Copper Plated INOX - CPI, Bronze. More anodized aluminium colors to come soon, we made very good tests with dark brown. red and blue.
As for the very successful launch of the New MK Filling Funnel 100 in black matte and the smaller standard black MK Funnel version we decided to make more Funnels soon for other top notch grinders with the next batches. The Funnel can be uses instead of a small, short hopper and for Single Dosing. It is the best way to use the Funnel with a grinder that has little retention. e.g. MK EK 43 Funnel
The Funnel 100 will be made* for:
MK ( K30 / Ek43 and similar) - available
MAZ S1 (Mazzer Mini/ - Super Jolly)
MAZ S2 (Mazzer Kony/ ZM Filter)
MAZ S3 (Mazzer Robur / Major / Royale)
MK E65S (Mahlkoenig & Anfim)
ANF (Anfim Super Caimano/Skody/ SP II)
CEA NEW (Ceado Quick GEAR)
QUA (Quamar all)
EUR MIG (Eureka Mignon NEW - Funnel 80)
more soon and on demand
* release date after summer break - September 19
The small funnels are similar to our glass adapters, they hold approx. 50-60 g of coffee depending on the adapter model.
Although the smaller ECM and Profitec grinders with ø 54 mm burrs are less expensive than the professional models with ø 64 mm burrs, there are many requests concerning our TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers for these semi professional grinder models offered by the ECM family. The solution for those grinders is very easy, we only have to cut 8 mm at the lower end of the original ECM adapter to get the perfect adapter for the smaller grinder models. We will add the models to the shop soon, prices will be the same like the standard ECM 64.
We are always busy to develop, modify and improve our TORR TOYS items. Furthermore, we always try to be helpful with multiple, complex answers to your questions to enable the best choice when you are going to decide about new coffee related products.

Our TORR Glass Hopper for Eureka Mignon is something the community has been looking forward to for a long time. We are thrilled to welcome the MIGNON Glass at the TORR TOYS portfolio soon. As for this we are going to start a TORRCROWD campaign on 01.04.2019 at https://torrcrowd.myshopify.com/
The campaign is expected to run until end of April, maybe until Mid May to enable the first big batch of hoppers for the Eureka MIGNON ind the beginning of September.
We are happy to let you know that we received a big batch of glass adapters finally and all “Made in Germany”. These new adapters are better concerning the all-over quality; however, we can also find little modifications here like the smaller gap and a modified fastening of the slider to avoid uncontrolled movement and vibrations. The already modified adapters are the Bestsellers: MK, Mazzer S1, ECM, Quamar and Rocket. Very busy days now to make some customers happy.
We overworked the design of the Filling Funnel and also changed the design a little bit. Furthermore, we modified and optimised the details to get that handling and usability. In addition to that, the standard funnels are made from aluminium right now, either glossy polished or anodised matte black. The stainless steel version can be made on demand. The funnel is made to hold approx. 100g of coffee beans.
The most significant improvement is the smaller gap to prevent beans from getting stuck as we made the gap just a little wider than the slider itself. Furthermore, the gap itself got another geometry and design to allow a movement without wobbling. These modifications can also be found with the MK glass adapters now.
The funnels are produced for the MK grinders and will be made for some other machines after having checked the demand and the feedback. The funnels are only useful for grinders which are good for SINGLE DOSING as for their low retention. E.g. MK EK43, Ceado E37S, Mazzer ZM and some more…
As Ceado modified most of the E37 grinder 2019 models we also had to change the glass adapter here to allow a perfect fit. With the new CEA adapter ø 56/58/23 mm it is possible to use the glass hopper for the remaining “Rubber Chute” like E37J and also for the E37S with Quick Set Gear. There is no more chance to use the MAZ S1 adapter for the new E37S 2019 models. The Ceado rubber chute is only used for the ø 64mm flat burr Ceados and for the E37S / 2018 models.
In addition to that we can add now the magnet for the E37K (conic model) at the outer part of the glass to keep the security switch in a perfect working condition. The E37K looks fine with a 300, 600 and 1300 glass hopper which uses the same body like the Ceado E37 Titanium.
We will add the new Ceado adapters to the shop these days. They will be available in the beginning of March. All new Ceado grinders will be delivered as 2019 model. Unfortunately, we had to adapt the prices here for the new models due to the Ceado guideline.
Although there is a trend to use small hoppers even with big grinders, we notice that our customers order bigger Glass Hoppers like the 1300 model and also ask for more significant options to be used for coffee shops and high volume bars where it´s a standard to use some KGs of coffee per day. The Mahlkoenig K30 and the big Mazzer grinders like Kony, Major and Robur are real workhorses and look really beautiful with big and colorful TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers. However, there are more big grinders which can be used with a 1300 hopper. As you might know, we can provide hoppers for most of the professional and semi-professional grinders in the market, and the range is still growing. So it doesn´t matter if you are running a big Eureka Olympus, Fiorenzato F71 or a famous Macap MD7, you can be sure that we will have the right adapter for your grinder to offer the option to use one of our luxury and useful Glass Hoppers made from handblown glass in small batches.
