With finding more and more high-end grinders and premium burrs in the market we also notice a higher demand for special glass hoppers, unique pieces and Art Glass as there is no need for an upgrade concerning the quality of the coffee and most of the grinder designs are timeless at all or even old-fashioned like many big Mazzers or the famous EK43 made by Mahlkoenig. Another good example of a special Art Piece is this Amber 600 hopper that comes with glossy DLC metal parts and a spiral + bubbles design. The problem of the unique pieces is to meet the exact requirements of the customer e.g. the right colour, the right design or a special pattern. Doing those Art pieces also means that we usually have to make more pieces to test and to be sure as you can only judge after having finished the glass in the cold workshop. As for this, it´s really important to discuss the wishes in detail before the final order is made. I guess it´s also clear that we can´t exchange Art Pieces which are made on demand and that those pieces need a much longer delivery time than the standards.
For the future, we will try to produce and keep some specials and limited editions in stock but of course, you will never know.
