    Hi All, I hope everyone is staying safe and managing the lockdown as well as they can. I have well and truly been bitten by the coffee bug and am on a mission to perfect my barista skills and shot quality. I have a Gaggia Classic with PID and brass parts, and recently brought a bottomless...

    Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here and looking for some recommendations on a decent tamper and thoughts on a distribution tool? I have searched all previous posts, but they are either a few years old or don't have enough suggestions for me. I find it difficult to consistently tamp and my small...

    Hi As my skills start to refine a little I find myself thinking about distribution tools. Currently I just grind and give a few taps. What do people think about the disc type distribution tools compared to the metal pronged stirrer thingies I have read of people using? Don't want to be one of...

    I purchased several of these and have two available. They're lovely little dosing cups with a small segment taken out of the collar to accommodate the EK43 bag holder (they can be used on other grinders with space, I've used mine on a mythos too). You can then simply dose into it, pop the PF...

    This is how I use my eureka Mignon. Using a ceramic ramekin means I can easily stir the grinds, being ceramic means I don't get any static. I'm Always making two drinks at once so find it easier to just halve the amount that comes out as it can vary slightly by up to a gram either way over the...

    Not unnaturally, Reiss Gunson of Londinium Espresso is enthusiastically promoting the Londinium Distribution Tool. He has referred to it as 'the silver bullet that can transform your espresso' and has said it will give you 'the best per dollar improvement in your current setup, compared to any...

    With which ek43 distribution do you have the best results so far? Stockfleth, OCD or other, WDT, HB Holdswhirl, tapping, Tala sifter,... Is it a subjective feeling or it was measured?

    Hi all, For the people that grind into a container before distributing into the portafilter, I'm interested - what do you use and would you recommend? I've tried a small square tupperware container, which is okay but not completely ideal as it's square. I've also tried a jar which I originally...

    Hi all. For anyone who is after a mechanical flour sifter to improve their distribution, I've found a cheaper alternative to the Tala Mini Sifter. It's made by a company called Metaltex and the seller has confirmed to me today that the funneled hole underneath is 55cm diameter. I've only ordered...

    Hello, PRAT gods. I would like to get into PRATting, as I can see the science behind this being beneficial (I'm currently using WDT) - only one thing that stops me basically, which is something to grind into. I'm using an EK, and ideally would like something I could clip in to grind into...

    I've got a small number of the Chinese adjustable tampers - both normal flat tampers, and the 3 wedged distribution device thing. The "Adjustable Flat" tampers are 516.5g in weight, and 58.5mm diameter - I've got a red one, a blue one and a purple one currently - £ 34.50 each plus...

    Saw this new to the coffeehit site. http://coffeehit.co.uk/ona-coffee-distributor Apparently designed by Sasa Sestic. In combination with a tamper such as great leveller, push Mahlgut etc, it could be a good way to control barista consistancy in a busy shop, but at £99 I think I'll stick with...

    I've possibly just made the best espresso I have ever made (and not even from not my most favorite beans)... I think it was down to some new gear: VST/IMS shower screen/Naked PF. But maybe I'm just justifying the splurge. Anyway - when using the PF I can now see how the coffee is extracting...

    Hi, I'm having some trouble lately with the distribution on my Mazzer Mini Doserless E grinds. Any suggestions other than WDT (not that that's a bad option!)

    Distribution , surely starts at the grinder as the coffee falls into the basket , I am going to put myself out there pose a few questions and hopefully stimulate some feedback towards what others think. Will your distribution be effected by how you tend or prefer to grind ? Either single...

    Hi I have recently switched from the La Spaz to the GS3. i think i now have a dosing and distribution issue. I am trying to grind straight into the portafilter and, as you know, you get the classic volcano. The issue is that i try to 'fill' the volcano but this is quite difficult to do...
