There are many super cool modifications of coffee gear out there.
Both large and small projects.
At the Danish coffee forum Espressobar.Dk, a guy who goes by the name TheBat18, made a (in my perspective) unique stroke of genius with his Dalla Corte Mini.
The site is in Danish, and the thread can be seen and followed here:
Also TheBat has given me permission to link his flickr page, since it’s still an ongoing project.
For those out there who are not as sharp in Danish, I will quickly give an explanation some of the images as good as I can. I will not go into the techniques and approach, as I have no knowledge of how it’s done.
He has chosen to make bamboo panels for his Dalla Corte.
He has designed a special mold the bamboo plates will be shaped in.
Afterwards the panels have had the necessary holes cut in a laser.
Everything is completed with finesse and perfection.
It is an insanely ambitious project this one.
The results indicate a designer who does not compromise with quality.
Furthermore the electronics has been given a significant upgrade as well.
