Eye catcher for Coffee Shops, Bars and Shop-in-Shop solutions

When it comes to professional coffee business Design and Design concepts are more important than in private spaces, offices or kitchens. The equipment, especially the espresso machine, the grinder and other nice equipment is always the eyecatcher of the professional coffee set-up. In this case, the TORR TOYS glass hopper could be the icing on the cake, a colour spot and eyecatcher that has to works well with all the interior concept. 

However, it doesn´t matter about the location and purpose, in the end, we always try to find the best hopper- and colour option for your set-up, using all modern and digital possibilities.

Macap M2M - smaller adapter, smaller glass for entry level grinders

The entry-level coffee grinders like Macap M2M and Obel Junior Professional are much smaller concerning the hopper, funnel and all-over-size. As for this, we designed a new glass hopper, the 200 MINI for those models. Due to the smaller glass, we also need to reduce the size of the adapters here - it´s a totally new concept with smaller dimensions in all fields.

We are going to focus on prices of approx. 25% less than the standard range to match the cheaper grinder prices. In the beginning, there will be only 2 -3 crystal options, later we are going to expand to some beautiful colour variants also. The Mini glass hoppers are expected after the summer break in September 2018. 

New 1KG glass design for MK K30 and K30 PEAK

The "King of the Grinders", the Mahlkoenig K30 PEAK will have another hopper option soon. This new glass size will be to hold approx. 1KG of coffee and can be also used for all the other standard adapters of course. The upcoming 1 KG size hopper will be designed to match the amazing Mahlkoenig K30 Peak, and all the other K30 models, in the best possible way to get a beautiful all-over design with that round and short body. The hopper will be little taller than the 600 size but with a wider diameter on top and a different shape. The total height of the MK30 should be 50 cm max. in the end. With this 1 KG, we will also offer special limited editions for the PEAK grinder. We expect the new design to be ready after the summer break in September latest.

Dark violet, more than a beautiful color, it even protects your coffee

The dark violet glass hoppers are one of our bestsellers after a short time of being introduced and for sure there are many reasons for this. Dark violet can be paired with many colours in and around your space - furthermore, a black grinder, which is the favourite colour of grinders, is a perfect match. The dark violet works with black and polished metal parts as well. This colour is really colourful without being aggressive or pushy. 

But even more, the most important reason to choose the dark violet colour might be that it protects your sensitive products (in this case, the coffee beans) against light and the bad influence of the light. The violet glass blocks a lot of the spectrum of the visible light and lets the violet light pass through. As for this, your beans are protected in a very good way against ageing. The darker the violet, the better the protection. As you should not store the beans in the glass hopper for a long time at all, the normal dark violet is already a very good protection for sunny grinder locations and spaces which are flooded with bright light. 


Shorter glass hopper "XS" for about 250g of coffee beans

There are many reasons to use a short hopper or TORR glass hopper for your coffee grinder and even some good reasons to use a very short hopper. First of all, it´s about the grinder and its design or the set-up. However, at the end of the day maybe the taste in the cup, the available space, or the practicability might be more important for some baristas.

Having this in mind we reduced our smallest hopper a little bit more to get the "XS" glass hopper which holds approx. 250g of beans. It can be used also for Single Dosing if you like. The glass is approx. 11 cm / 4 1/3 " high from the top of the grinder (upper burr holder - top level). The final measures depend on the grinder and adapter. For the lid on top, you can add another 2,5 cm / 1 inch to get a total of approx. 13,5 cm / 5 1/3 inches. For those who need the 5-inch maximum height, we are going to make a shorter lid without a small handle section. 

Please find a small selection* which can be used for sure under a cabinet with a height of 18"/45 cm which is the standard for some countries and areas. 

  • Ceado E37S and Ceado E37J (XS, also 300) 
  • Mazzer Mini / Mazzer Mini E (XS)
  • Macap MD4/MD5 (XS, also 300)
  • Rocket Fausto (XS) 
  • Eureka Atom (XS) 
  • Quamar Q50E / M80E
  • Fiorenzato F4 Nano ( XS, also 300) 

* a detailed list with grinders + measures (total height) will appear soon

Rancilio Silvia & Mazzer Mini E plus TORR TOYS 300 Light Blue

Simple and classic designs are always en vogue and can´t be wrong. The Rancilio Silvia is a home barista bestseller espresso machine for many years, the Mazzer Mini E is still a top seller for home and small professional use when it comes to coffee- and espresso grinders.

A good reason to arrange a little set-up with those famous tools adding our TORR TOYS Mazzer glass hopper light blue** 300 bubbles. The light blue is one of the strongest colours of the season. You can also see a TORR Goldfinger tamper 58.5 convex,  a Motta pitcher Rosso 350 ml and a TORR knock BoXx Inox in the picture. 

** the light blue glass has a little less saturation and a warmer touch in real. colours might be different, each piece of glass is unique. 

New pictures and videos

We made some new pictures and videos these days and checked also grinder/glass combinations, especially concerning size and colours. Sometimes, it´s really hard to decide which ones are the most beautiful matches. We are going to provide the images asap. The panorama picture shows the following grinders from left to right: 

1. Compak 2. - Rocket - 3. Mazzer Mini E - 4. Macap MD4  - 5. Quamar - 6. Ceado - 7. Macap (2) - 8. Eureka Zenith 9. - Mazzer Kony - 10. Mazzer Royal

Vintage Grinders - Vintage Glass Hoppers

We will start to care about some famous vintage grinders with our TORR Glass Hoppers soon. First results might be ready after the summer break.  We expect to get some new patterns here. Furthermore, we will try to make replacement parts for old and broken hoppers when the OEM parts are not available any more. Last but not least we will add some beautiful glasses to refurbished used and vintage grinders and will offer them to vintage grinder lovers. If you have some vintage grinder projects to realize, just let us know - we will be happy to cooperate. 

 

Rocket Fausto & TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers

The Rocket Fausto is in the same class of semi-professional, high-end home grinders like the famous competitors Mazzer Mini E, Macap MD4, ECM V-Titan 64,  the "Sister-Grinder" Eureka Atom and some others. Although, they are similar concerning the size, design and performance they look quite different with the glass options we offer. As for this, we will show some new pics soon in the Rocket gallery which will be added shortly. We can always make suggestions but in the end, it´s your decision to pair the right glass for your grinder and your location. After having finished the Rocket picture gallery we will care about the ECM Glass Hoppers and new pictures, especially the V-Titan 64 which is a highlight in that group as for the titanium burrs and the extraordinary craftsmanship and fine materials.

In the near future will also try to highlight our favourite options for each grinder concerning the glass. We also think about to make special collections or limited editions for each grinder/glass combination to reach a special look that fits in the best way.

New Glass Design - "Bulls Eye"

There is a new Glass Design/ pattern called "BullsEye". This pattern comes with oval, olive size dots which are made in the hot workshop with the help of an extra mold. The overall character of this glass design is more"raw" than the other designs but looks very natural and stylish, especially when paired with a black lid. We start with the 300 size here and will end up also with other sizes and colors soon. There are more designs to come soon.

Big Filling Funnel for MK

As our Glass Adapters are also used as Filling Funnels we made some special ones with a higher volume of approx. 90-100 g coffee beans. We started with the funnel for MK where single dosing is very popular with the Mahlkönig EK43 Grinder. We will produce big Filling Funnels also for other grinder models and also on demand. Different finishes available on demand. These first models are made from stainless steel, we expect them to be made from anodized aluminium in the future as for the high prices, a result of big diameters we need. The top diameter is ø 115 mm and it´s made of one single piece of stainless steel.

Mazzer S2 & S3 simplified

We modified the Glass Adpaters Mazzer S2 & S3 for the big Mazzer grinders again to make them more simple compared to the first version and of course much more simple and elegant compared to the OEM plastics version. With this modified models where we just mount the hook with the help of 2 screws, we can reach a better finish and also different kinds of finishes more easily. As for the higher weight of the glass and TORR TOYS Adapter, which is made from massive stainless steel, we leave out the screw but you can order it on demand if it´s necessary for you. The standard version is the polished one here but you can get all coatings, finishes and paintings on demand. With this new version of the S2  & S3 we enable big Coffee Shops to use our TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers, where the Mazzer Royal, Major, Kony, ZM and Robur grinders are the most favorite ones around the world. 

The Glass Adapter can be also used as a filling funnel for single dosing without any glass for those who like to work like this or if you don´t have any space for the hopper.

Mazzer S1, S2, S3 - Mazzer Mini E, Mazzer Kony, Mazzer Royal/Robur

Our most favourite range of TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers is the Mazzer grinder glass for coffee grinders. It´s not only about the grinders itself but we can find a similar Design of grinders here, different sizes and a big quantity of models, all of them in excellent quality. It´s really a pleasure to mix different Mazzer grinders in one location with different glasses and Glass Hoppers. For the Mazzer grinder glass, we offer 3 different adapters and all sizes: 300, 600, 1300. If you don´t care about the classic OEM design of your grinder, or if you need to reduce the size of your grinder for any reason, all glass sizes are possible for each grinder. So it´s possible to use a 300 size glass for a Mazzer Royal or Robur (old model available so far) as well as to use a 1300 glass for the Mazzer Super Jolly if you like it or need it in a high volume coffee bar as a professional barista. 

Actually, we modified the S2 and S3 adapter to make it more sleek and elegant. This is possible with our stainless steel construction compared to the OEM plastic parts. As the Mazzer grinders are available in good quantities worldwide and as a result of the higher demand of Glass Hoppers here, we are going to expand the Mazzer adapter models concerning the finish and colours to match each and every need from glossy and matte stainless steel to black coated, DLC and many more.

  • Mazzer S1: Mini, Mini E, Super Jolly, Lux, Mazzer/LM and similar
  • Mazzer S2: Kony and ZM 
  • Mazzer S3: Major, Royal, Robur and similar

### do you like to see an 1800 g glass for the Robur/Royal or is the 1300 size big enough? ###

Mazzer Mini E Doser Lid Stainless Steel

To reach a better overall Design of the grinder we have the stainless lid for the Mazzer Mini E Mod. B available to match the Glass Hopper and the Glass Hopper lid. The Lid is made of massive stainless steel with a hand polished glossy finish. We are going to plan also wooden lids here in the near future which will fit the wooden Glass Hopper lids in the best way. The stainless steel lid is available at our shop for 59.00 Euros.  

New Grinder Adapters at the Store

We added the new adapters at the glass store. All glasses can be mounted to each adapter as usual. The next upcoming adapters will be Eureka Atom, Macap M2M and Eureka Mignon. We expect them to be ready around Spring 2018. There will be also some modifications and improvements with the next series of adapters. Furthermore, we are going to start with anodized adapters in different colours for the bestsellers like Mahlkoenig and Mazzer S1. If the feedback and the results will be good we can expand to other models easily.

We call it "Glass Family"

This Year will be the Year of TORR TOYS Glass Hoppers as our "Glass Family" is really growing fast, especially in the field of new adapters, lids and coloured metal parts.   

There are some grinders that look beautiful just "Out of the Box", others need to be modified for sure. After some days and weeks with the Quamar, Eureka and Fiorenzato grinders one can say that those grinders really rock with our Glass Hoppers. In the end, you should decide yourself about the best options, complements and colours. However, we will show some set-ups these days with the upcoming batch of glass offering suggestions to select the right glass for your grinder.
