We dreamt of floating on a lake while being ignored by the birds. Sliding on the stream with a camera in front, taking pictures without being noticed. So we worked on a new floating platform for more than a year. Very happy to announce it will be available fo…

It's been quite some time since we dropped you a newsletter. We've had all hands on deck to clear some challenges in our line of manufacturing and get our most popular items back in stock. As you might know, we produce almost everything ourselves. But for the…

No matter how much we wish the pandemic were over, in most European countries the battle with the virus continues. We have to stay within our country borders and rely on domestic trips to enjoy nature and spend time outdoors. Many people find it a revelation …

As you may have noticed, we are fully awake now. A cup of freshly brewed coffee always helps. And as you may have missed - because we didn't mention it that much - we have a fine and thoroughly tested product range of coffee brewing equipment. No large espres…
