Progress update!

Hello all!

You might be wondering what’s been happening at Option-O – we apologise for the silence, but worry not, we have been hard at work in the background to ensure the production is moving along smoothly. There has been a little delay (says who manufacturing and managing supply chain are never straight forward - whoever he/she may be, that's so right!). However, we have received most parts and are expecting to have enough parts to start assembling and performing final QC by next week. At this point, we are still aiming for a mid-September shipping delivery.

Update 27th September: Unfortunately we encountered an unexpected delay due to part finishing issue. We are working on that and are waiting for the parts to come back to us. We are sorry for the delay but we hope that each delivered grinder will meet our quality standards.

While you are waiting patiently, we thought you might be interested some pictures of the Stance Motors in the making.

 These are the motor housing bodies just before being sent out for finishing.

 This is the shaft that will be doing the hard work driving the Stance - made in stainless steel because we want it to be strong enough to serve two lifetimes!

 Our dosing funnel made to match the height of the portafilter fork – as promised, in stainless steel like the Stance. A little overkill but we thought why not?

 These are the LED switches that will go onto all the Stance Motors. When they lit up it means delicious coffee is on its way. :-)

That’s all for now and we hope to bring great news with the next update! Thanks again for your support and patience.
