Motta Coffee Distribution Tool

by Motta

To really perfect your espresso extractions, you need a properly distributed and tamped coffee puck. The good tamping technique can help with the latter, but distribution is a bigger challenge, as coffee grounds can come out of most espresso grinders in clumps. Because of this, there is an increasing focus on distribution in specialty cafes, and you may see many of the best baristas using a coffee distributor before tamping.

This coffee levelling distribution tool is manufactured by Metallurgica Motta, one of the most trusted names in espresso accessories. It has three sloped fins and an adjustable height, allowing you to ensure that the coffee in your filter basket is perfectly distributed before tamping. If you want to improve your espresso extractions, we'd highly recommend investing in one of these Motta distributors!

    The 57mm fits my Avanti Capri nicely and does it's job well! Also thank you very for the little extras in the shipping box (not related to the product)! I truly appreciate that!

    Solid & great value

    I looked at a lot of distribution tools before deciding on the Motta and I couldn't be happier with this one (58 mm for La Marzocco). What can I say? It works! The price point is appealing and on top, it's made in Italy. I've got the Motta pitcher as well. Quality and excellent value. Highly recommended. Skip the hype of units priced 3X higher and run with this one. Great service from Coffee Addicts only makes it all the better.

    Great quality in this Italian accessory

    I’m new at making espresso and felt this tool would help. Delighted at the heavy weight and impressed with the obvious quality. This helps level the mound of grounds before tamping. I feel the coffee is distributed more evenly and I have great puck formation. Never thought I’d say that with such pride before starting this hobby! If you need a distribution tool, this one’s a beauty.

    Distributeur à café Mota

    Le distributeur à café Mota est de belle qualité, son poids est impressionnant pour un si petit article. Il égalise merveilleusement le café moulu dans de porte filtre Rancilio. Très satisfait de mon achat.
