As a coffee olver, you load up your bean hopper, start your grinder, fill up your portafilter, and before you know it, you've got a leaning tower of espresso teetering a mile high. Everything is already. But one false move and you're sending that precious stack of coffee right down into the drip tray, or scattered across your countertop. This is not only messy and wasteful, but assuming you're weighing your doses before grinding (something we recommend doing), you've now lost a portion of that dose to the abyss. This is a problem we often encounter when making coffee.
The solution: a doing funnel.
With a dosing funnel sitting on the rim of your portafilter, you'll have an extra wall of protection to stop your grounds from jumping ship. It's important to note that you won't be able to use the built-in grinder holder on machines such as the Barista Express, but simply pushing the grinder button with your finger and a few seconds of holding the portafilter under the grinder is a great trade off for losing grounds all over your workstation. There are different matertials, today weI’ll recommend a dosing funnel made of premium aluminum metal, which is non-rust nor corrosive, food grade material, safe to your family’s health. It will not be bent or deformed in daily use, and also more lightweight, can be cleaned quickly with brushes, sponges. It fits the 54mm Breville portafilter perfectly. You can choose another design according to your preference.
