Baristas rejoice: it's now easier than ever to prep your shots uniformly and consistently thanks to the Dozer grooming tool by Mahlgut. The sloped base design and screw-style adjustment allow you to quickly groom your coffee bed before tamping, making for more even shots and less channeling.

Mahlgut's Dozer is a grooming and distribution tool for your espresso pipeline, which helps de-clump and redistribute the grounds in your 58 mm basket prior to tamping. Simply place the Dozer on top of your ground coffee, spin in a clockwise direction, then tamp. Using the Dozer, we've seen consistently better shots with more uniform and even extractions, as well as far less channeling. The Dozer is designed to be endlessly tweakable, within a range of about 8 mm to 20 mm of depth, using a screw-style system of locking adjustments. That means that you won't be stuck if you change your dose or grind size, as the Dozer can be quickly adjusted to keep up with your shot changes.

To use the Dozer, you'll first want to settle on your desired dose and grind for your coffee - just dial in as you normally would. Grind out a shot, tamp as normal, then loosen the adjustments on your Dozer and set the base depth so it does not disturb the surface of the tamped puck. The Dozer works best when it compacts the coffee puck as little as possible prior to tamping, so it can evenly distribute the upper layer of coffee and make an even surface for tamping. Once you have your desired setting, twist the two adjustment rings together to lock it in, and you're good to go! Remember to make adjustments as needed if you change the dose or grind size, to ensure more consistent shots.

A must have!

I've had the dozer for a week now and so far I couldn't be happier with it. I use a bottomless portafilter whenever pulling shots and since I started using the dozer I've had zero uneven shots, zero misiting or channeling and all the deliciousness that a well pulled shot should have, also, I'm saving so much time during the process. Worth the price!

Mahlgut Dozer = EVEN

Really enjoy this product. Using it to help staff evenly distribute shots we are pulling off of an EKK. Noticed an increase of extraction on average as well as fewer channeled shots. The Stainless Steel one is HEAVY though. Be careful not to drop it as it will break basically anything it comes into contact with.

I thought for some time about the reason for a Dozer , why would one need two tools to set the coffee for a espresso shot ? why not just a tamper, it should ' level ' and tamp in one simple step . I bought the Mahlgut DOZER , black , weighs 606 grs. [ 1lb.5.4oz. ] it is 57.94mm. and now it is always part of my steps to pull the espresso shot . I also had bought first: the Palm Buzzer, stainless steel , 1058grs., [ 2lbs.5.2oz.] it is 58mm. they work as a ' team' a great team to pull a great espresso shot . both are quality made , each ' lock ' at a set depth - which you can change any time with a simple twist of a locking ring and the screw adjustment is changed . I always use my Dozer now but at times I will use other tampers [ gift ones , hand made wood ones , special ones ] . but if I want a sure pull - I go to the ' team ' : Dozer , Buzzer from Mahlgut . it is an unbeatable pair - well worth it . Mahlgut has a great set of tools , they make great items , high quality . Prima Coffee is a great group of people with good presale and after sale help and products . I will buy from them in the future if I need to , I hope you will consider them also - and think about the Buzzer or the Dozer , I think you also will find the ' team ' a nice addition to your espresso making steps .

Mahlgut Distribution Tool

Sucks. It only distributes the top part of the puck. The bottom part stays uneven if it wasn't distributed properly before hand.
