Created with the intention of uniformly and consistently shifting the coffee grounds through the distinctive raised edge of the tool in an S-shape.
By taking a few extra seconds to distribute the coffee grounds evenly in the basket using this coffee distributor, you’ll notice that tamping becomes less challenging and shot consistency improves. This tool eliminates the need for manual movement of grounds with your hands or fingers, thus preventing the development of “barista fingers.”
The S-shaped edge of the tool redistributes the coffee accumulated in the basket’s centre due to the grinder’s spray pattern, spreading it evenly across the basket’s edges while smoothing any gaps or crevices in the ground’s surface. This even distribution of the coffee grounds increases the chances of consistent tamping and extraction during the espresso shot-making process, resulting in a higher yield and a better-tasting coffee.
The Artisan Barista 58mm Distributor offers the following features:
- Enhanced Consistency: Achieve better-tasting espresso and improve tamping and extractions through the consistent distribution of the coffee grounds.
- Adjustable Height: Customise the depth of the wedge by unscrewing the middle portion to suit your basket and dose.
- Improved Tamping: Benefit from an even flat surface to tamp on after distributing the coffee grounds, resulting in improved outcomes.
- Easy to Use: Place the tool onto your un-tamped coffee straight from the grinder and twist it around 2-3 times in either direction to obtain a smooth, even surface to tamp on.
