To really perfect your espresso extractions, you need a properly distributed and tamped coffee puck. 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 leveling 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!

    Well I already had a distribution tool that came free with my grinder ( monolith ) and had been using it for some time as I do find they help pre tamp (or if you like you could almost skip the tamp) this one is actually quite nice it’s smaller no knurling on the sides which is not an issue and lighter also which I like.
    Goes nicely with the Motta milk pitchers which I like also.

    Excellent quality!

    Great tool and feels good in your hand. The 58.5 mm is perfect for precision baskets by IMS or VST. Easy to adjust and no dealing with weird locking designs, just twist and the rubber gasket keeps your setting in place. I like it.

    Fantastic buy

    I love this tool, works well. But still I don't know how to adjust the height. Default height worked well for me tho.

    Great tool

    The 58.5mm is the perfect size for our Lelit portafilter. Grounds are distributed evenly and consistently. Would buy again!
