Even distribution of coffee into the portafilter basket is essential to ensure you give yourself a chance for a good tamp


There are a number of distribution methods

Weiss Distribution

Stockfleth's Move


Levelling and Distribution are 2 different components in the coffee making process

I use a form of "Stockfleth's Move" at work. Try an espresso without distribution and then using "Stockfleth's Move". You'll notice that the latter will be sweeter and more rounded as correct even extraction is taking place.
