Even Distribution For Even Extraction

The Chisel's base is designed to maximize the lateral distribution force during use, so your coffee ends up as evenly dense as possible after redistribution. Doing this prior to tamping will create a more even coffee bed with fewer pockets of uneven densities, so your shots will extract more uniformly and taste even better. It's quick and easy to adjust, with a screw-style adjustment offering a depth from 7-14 mm. The stainless steel base is 58.4 mm in diameter, so it will fit most commercial sized baskets.

To use the Chisel, we recommend starting by grinding and tamping a dose of coffee as you would normally. Then, you can adjust the Chisel to the proper and desired depth using the tamped basket as a reference. To set the Chisel depth, first unlock the screw by twisting the upper adjustment wheel counter-clockwise until it feels loose. Then, extend the base by twisting it counter-clockwise from the bottom. Test the base depth by setting the Chisel onto your basket - if the base touches the tamped bed of grounds, it is set too deep, and you should retract the base by turning it clockwise. If it does not touch the tamped bed of grounds but looks to be too shallow, you may wish to extend it a bit more. The goal is to find a setting which balances how much the grounds are compacted while they are being distributed sideways and outward, and keep in mind that the subsequent tamp should provide the majority of the compacting force. This does take a little trial and error, but it's easy to pick up once you see the results in the coffee. Once you've found your desired setting, lock in the screw by twisting the upper adjustment wheel clockwise until snug (careful not to over-tighten). You can repeat this process to make small tweaks as needed, or if you change your coffee, baskets, or dose size.
