Take the guesswork out of coffee distribution and pull fantastic espresso shots with better consistency with the Nucleus Coffee Distributor.
Good espresso relies on numerous variables all of which can impact the final flavour and consistency of the shot. Poor coffee extraction can be caused by several factors including incorrect dosing, tamping, and uneven coffee distribution.
Formally the Ona Coffee Distributor Tool, otherwise known as the OCD coffee distributor.
In the past, baristas employed various techniques in an attempt to distribute coffee grounds evenly on the portafilter. Maneuvers like vertical and side-to-side tapping seem to have worked but both methods can be time-consuming and prone to error especially in a busy cafe. With this nifty device from Nucleus Coffee Tools, perfecting coffee distribution only takes a second.
Designed with four angular slopes, the NCD evens out the coffee grounds prior to pulling the shot, minimizing the risk of water micro channelling and ultimately, uneven coffee extraction. The coffee distribution tool also features a textured, non-slip grip for easy handling and low-static coating inside to prevent coffee build-up. It can also be adjusted for a range of doses and basket sizes.
