Tampers & Distributors
Pulling a decent shot of espresso requires an evenly distributed and levelly tamped ground coffee in the portafilter. Inconsistency in the distribution of ground coffee can result in channeling; water passing through the path of least resistance in an espresso bed, where a small portion of coffee comes in contact with too much water while the rest is under extracted. Channeling can create a sour, bitter coffee with a thin mouthfeel. Coffee Espresso Tampers and Distributors from Muddle Me come in various sizes to match the portafilter basket, and are available in flat, convex or calibrated options.
