Bohemia Glass means Czech Glass means High Quality

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.

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…

etzMAX - YES, please - a new generation of coffee grinders

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.

More Glass & Black Metal Parts

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.

Filling Funnel 100 Black Matte NEW

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.

Glass Adapter for ECM C-Manuale 54 & Profitec PRO M54

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.

ECM 54 = ECM 64 to cut 8mm shorter

100+ NEW Adapters - Made in Germany & MODS

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.

New Grinder Filling Funnel 100

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…

New Adapters For Ceado Quick Set Gear Models

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.

Coffee Shops & Big Hoppers

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.

New CEADO Grinders - a good reason for more GLASS HOPPERS

There are 3 new Ceado grinders available now, they are launched at the Sigep Fair from 19-23 of January in Rimini. One of them is a Single Dosing Grinder, the others are modified grind on demand grinders with ø 64mm and ø 83 mm flat burrs.

  • E37SL - a modified E37S with thermo control system, ø 83 mm flat burrs- the SL version comes in a larger body like the T (Titanium) with a powerful 500 W version and a new spout and better grind setting (Quick Set Gear)

  • E37R - an modified E37J with a more powerful 400W engine and a larger hopper of 1600g. As for the retention we will see how much it was improved here

  • E37SD - a Single Dose model, similar to the E37S and much cheaper than the Z-Hero model. The SD comes with ø 83 mm titanium burrs. The retention was even improved a little compared to the normal E37S

More details about the new grinders soon, as well the prices and possibility to order via Shop. With the broader programme of the Ceado grinders, we will also launch individual Glass Hoppers for the Ceado. The Ceado can be used with the Mazzer S1 adapter or with the special Ceado CEA adapter.

Customer Gallery Pictures

We always appreciate it very much to get some nice pictures from our customers to see the final coffee set-up, either in homes, bars or any locations you might use our tools. This helps us and our customers to see the TORR TOYS products, especially the Glass Hoppers at different locations, how you use it or combine it concerning the design and with other coffee related items. In this case you can see a very beautiful ALL-ROCKET kitchen set-up with a clear and pure design - our 250 crystal glass hopper is the perfect complement for this stylish location and it ends up with the same grinder height like the machine. All works fine with the standard cabinets and offers enough space to handle the beans without any trouble.

To have better options to show different grinders, machines, locations and more we will build 3 different options in the showroom next year to visualize and showcase many possibilities.
