What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Over the past 3 years, we have been working hard to develop this new ground-breaking ceramic coffee technology that is the heart of the grinder and our patent is being issued these days.  The idea of creating the best manual coffee grinder technology out there has been our motivation. The Columbia is a handheld grinder that grinds everything from french press to espresso to Turkish coffee and has the highest output in the market, which was one of our goals.

Our latest technology (the BARISTA mechanism) is specifically developed for a handheld construction that requires less force when grinding and at the same time out-performs on output per turn giving you a better grind in less time. Combined with a sleek and compact design with easy fill and precise setting of coarseness, we believe that the Columbia grinder, powered by CrushGrind BARISTA technology, will set new standards for manual grinding of coffee...

Risks and challenges

The concept has been thoroughly tested and we have a finished technology to implement in the product. Multiple prototypes have been made and the final design is approved. There is always a risk of a delay in time, but with our experience with previous projects, we do not expect any delays. The challenge on the short terms is to get the project funded so that we can proceed.
