Martin Nicholson likes a challenge.
He looks at things and imagines how they could be made better. He thinks and designs; he builds and invents. He has many patents to his name, on everything from gearboxes to food processors. He loves really good coffee.
It occurred to Martin that the basic design of the coffee grinder hadn’t changed since the 1950’s – and most other technologies have changed almost beyond recognition in that time span.
Martin saw an opportunity to design and build a revolutionary coffee grinder incorporating game-changing technology and he saw an opportunity to bring coffee grinding of the highest professional standards within reach of everyone who loves truly great coffee.
