    Default funnel v2

    We've changed the design slightly for version 2 of our portafilter funnels https://decentespresso.com/funnel

    We previously were making them out of stainless steel, and coating them with teflon. The coating looked beautiful, and worked well, but if you've ever had a teflon coated frying pan, you know that sooner or later you end up scratching the teflon off. Teflon is unfortunately too delicate a material, and eventually you'll get blemishes.

    This is what the funnel we're using here looks like after 6 months of daily use. The most vulnerable part, the edge, which is both most likely to get banged, and hardest to get teflon to stick, has several "dings".

    Also, the stainless steel funnel weighed half a pound (260g), which felt great, but was a bit overkill, and cost us a fortune in air shipping.

    The new design is made from food-grade aluminum, black anodised coated. It's almost as no-stick, but much more durable. The weight is much reduced (97g), but still heavy enough to stay put.

    Here's a photo of the two models side-by-side, with the old on the left, and the new on the right.

    Default 500 custom-made tablet stands came in on a pallet today.

    I had planned on pre-gluing the stand to the tablet before you receive your espresso machine from us, but now I'm thinking that it might be better to let you glue it yourself, so that you can decide (a) the angle (b) whether you want the stand or prefer to have the tablet elsewhere (such as on a wall). To glue the tablet, you peel the wax-paper off the stand base and stick the now-exposed 3M pad to your tablet.

    What do you think?
