This is a custom that was made for a friend who wanted a version of one of my pieces called " One More Cup Of Coffee" but I wanted to do something a bit different. This piece is a spin on the famous made Hops Inline, where I have added a disc to the side which has a 4 hole perc to add a second filtration section. The thing is smooth to the draw!!! I know that i am not the originator of many of these techs but the side way style of this is one that I have yet to see! Enjoy and I hope that we all continue the growth of our world threw creation. Peace
