To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
solid in the hand and adjustible, this made an instant improvement to the taste of our coffees at home. Guaranteed level after a few twists, and doesn't require an overly firm tamp afterwards. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Can't go wrong at 10% the price of the top distributors.
I bought this for my boyfriend as a gift as the tool is very nice quality and looks great. Unfortunately it is advertised that it fits 53mm Breville machines. My boyfriend has a 53mm Breville and it does not fit. Upon messaging the distributor he replied that I was 1 day late to be able to return or exchange. Needless to say I am very disappointed in the description of the size of the product and the customer service as well. Its a shame because the product seemed great.
Does the job but for the money it would have been nice to have a tamper on the other side. It isn’t that precise so you get a lot of grounds up along the sides. You need to clean it often for that reason. The adjustment for depth is precise and holds well. Remains stain and rust free. I would recommend this product if there is nothing better on offer.
I really liked the OCD tool when I used it at events where I help making espresso shot to empty the lines quicker (but they always come back).
At home I have the Breville Barista Express so I can't use the OCD. I found this listing not long ago and ordered it. And I love it! Only made a few shot still, you can spin perfectly and confidently in the 54mm portafilter of the Breville. All solid metal part.
I also like that it doesn't have any branding, love the stealthy look over the big OCD lettering.
Really good coffee distributor, and fits the smaller Breville portafilter I find you don’t need to tamp after using this, provided you have your puck height dialled in, but that will be a matter of preference. Great value, really solid (all metal) and well built.
