Our sample spoon was quite the feat to engineer. It took some trial and error, but we have managed to create a functional sample spoon and door handle in one. The solid stainless steel sample spoon slides into the door handle. In it’s locked position, it functions as the handle to open the door with. By twisting it 180 degrees, you unlock the sample spoon, which can be removed to sample some beans. Slide it back in and twist to lock the door handle back into place. It takes a few tries, as most people are not used to a heavy sample spoon. But after 2 or so tries, you’ll love it!
