58mm Double-Headed Espresso Tamper and Distributor by MATOW Take your barista skills and style up a notch with a professional, dual-head portafilter leveler and tamp justice to your brew. Level, evenly distributed grounds are an essential first step in achieving the perfectly packed basket of fine ground espresso. Twist the 3 leaf clover dial side down 3 times to evenly disperse the grounds. Turn your tool over and use the flat base palm tamper. Packing the grounds tight creates the right amount of pressure for a proper espresso pull adjustable height of the distributor allows some control over depth of your pack (*remember – a full basket is required to get a tight pack and high quality pour. If the basket isn’t completely full the tool will not reach your grounds. For best results, groom the top of the basket with a flat edge before leveling and tamping) the distribution/leveling side to evenly distribute the grounds in your portafilter, then flip to the adjustable tamper side for a uniform tamp, every time. HOW IT WORKS: PROCESS 1 – Load your portafilter basket with the desired amount of freshly ground coffee. PROCESS 2 – Retract the distributor side to it’s shallowest depth, and place the distributor on your portafilter, blade side down. PROCESS 3 – Gently spin the distributor until your coffee grounds have been evenly distributed and leveled. If the distributor does not reach the coffee, adjust the depth accordingly. Note: you do not want to be applying heavy pressure to the grounds at this stage — only enough to level the coffee in the basket. PROCESS 4 – Flip the distributor over and extend the tamper (flat side) to its maximum height. Tamp your grounds to your desired pressure. PROCESS 5 – For consistent tamping every time, adjust the tamper depth so it matches the depth of the tamp you created in Step 4.
