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.
The 58mm Coffee Distributor & Tamper by MATOW is really heavy and solid. Feel like it will be around when I am long gone! - I have been using it everyday with my Classica Giga Espresso portafilter. The fit is perfect for the diameter and the ability to adjust the tapper to go deeper into the filter makes this a winner for me. The first few days were playing with it to get the depth setup and how much coffee to fill. Now the pucks look great and the cappuccino is better than ever.
Useful tool if you need a 2-in-1 coffee distributer + tamper. I do single shots + need both ends to be extended further to reach the grounds. When the tamper end is fully extended, the distributer end is too shallow (+ vice versa). The manufacturer should make the internal screw at least 5-10 mm longer. Wanted to keep this but it didn’t work for me.
I really wanted to spend the $300 on separate levelers and tampers - made in Germany naturally. But that aesthetic is only worth so much. These are well made and perform the work every bit as well. This is a case where paying less is not a material compromise.
