Our 51mm double-sided tamper & distributor combo is designed to work with 51mm portafiler baskets, including Delonghi Dedica, Capresso PRO, and Breville 800 Series.
This convenient dual-purpose distribution/tamping tool allows you to evenly distribute your coffee grounds, and then tamp your grounds with consistent pressure, every time.
STEP 1 - Load your portafilter basket with the desired amount of freshly ground coffee.
STEP 2 - Retract the distributor side to it's shallowest depth, and place the distributor on your portafilter, blade side down.
STEP 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.
STEP 4 - Flip the distributor over and extend the tamper (flat side) to its maximum height. Tamp your grounds to your desired pressure.
STEP 5 - For consistent tamping, every time, adjust the tamper depth so it matches the depth of the tamp you created in Step 4.
