Step 1: Grind

Load your portafilter basket with the desired amount of freshly ground coffee. Keep things tidy by using our Dosing Funnel.

Step 2: Prepare

Retract the distributor side to its shallowest depth, and place the distributor on your portafilter, blade side down.

Step 3: Distribute

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.

Step 4: Tamp

Flip the distributor over and extend the tamper (flat side) to its maximum height. Tamp your grounds to your desired pressure. For consistent tamping every time, adjust the tamper depth so it matches the depth of the tamp you just created.

Protect your surfaces with either our Tamper Puck or Tamping Mat.

Buying #2 - its that good

LOVE this thing! We are closing 175 tickets a day with espresso drinks and using one tool. This is so useful for consistently providing the same extraction, no matter who is tamping

Excellent professional barista tool

We're opening an upscale coffee cafe in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, with top of the line equipment, including the combo 58.5 distributor and tamper from Crema! A must-have for serious commercial coffee shops.

Nicely Made Piece. Tamper Too Short

Distributor works perfectly. The tamper is too short to provide a consistent tamp for my setup. I use a 21 gram basket in a bottomless portafilter. I use 19 grams of grinds. The tamp extended to its limits will "bottom" onto the basket rather than fully tamp the puck. This may not be the experience for many but be cautious

Love Every Shot.

To us, coffee is a ritual. And we want you to love every moment of it. To take joy in the process of measuring and grinding. To experience confidence while distributing and tamping. To rejoice in the sight of the perfect extraction. And of course, to love every drink you make, every time you make it.
