Any coffee pressing down is tamping - and that is to be avoided as much as possible in this step.
In order to come close to the ideal of an absolutely even and consistent puck density and flatness, a successful compromise between vertical (compression, tamping) and horizontal (distribution, redistribution) movement is necessary. In other words, the chisel must be set deep enough so that as much ground coffee as possible is distributed, but not too deep so that individual areas are not pre-tamped unevenly. The result is optimal when the ground coffee is evenly distributed, but still loose enough to be able to compress when tamping.
Regardless of the depth set for the Chisel, the 'footprint', i.e. the area of the compressed ground coffee when the Chisel is in place, has been reduced to just 6% - compared to competing products, which often start at 30%.
Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon )
Botanically, the species belongs to Acacia melanoxylon to the acacia genus. Blackwood is mainly found in Tasmania. The heartwood is light brown to reddish-dark brown with distinctive markings. It is a high-quality wood for indoor and outdoor use, in boat building and as wood for turning. Easy to clean with a damp cloth. Individual engravings with less contrast than aluminum.
Important: even the best redistribution tool only works with an acceptable initial distribution. This means that you have to make sure that your grinder doesn't scatter too much or eject to the basketrand. In this case, please always 'pre-adjust' the ground coffee a little with your finger, i.e. push it into the middle. However, this is usually not necessary if the mills are set correctly.
