Ari Halonen came to pivot with a functional prototype that consisted of a thermos with a ball valve and spout. Upon presenting us with his invention it was a “why has no one thought of this before” moment. The concept was beautifully simple yet brewed great coffee. We started by taking the concept with ball valve and developing it further. Due to the size envelope and cleaning we departed from this and went over to a screw and oring seal system. We produced thew first prototypes in house using SLA with high temperature resins. The final prototypes were produced using SLS technology.
