Hi MiniBrew Fans,


We have some good news to share with you. We are making some great progress over at our factory partner in China! 


Half of our hardware team (the men of steel) is currently visiting the factory and testing the first MiniBrews made from our tools!

As soon as they are back we can share some more insights on their trip and the status of the tools. 


Meanwhile, we can show you and explain a bit what tools we are working on and what they do with a series of pictures from China. 


Enjoy :)

Bart is incredibly happy about these pieces of metal ;)

So to resume the situation, we still have quite a lot to do since some of the tools needs slight adjustments. Therefore, next time we can go a bit more in-depth into the individual parts.


This was it for this weeks update - as soon as the hardware team comes back from our factory we can share more information about the OTB products and the tests that were performed in the meantime.


 

Please stay tuned and until next week


Cheers
