I notice, @MWJB, you say you set the Motta 53mm to the depth of the razor tool, how do you manage to screw in the Motta to be that low, using my fingers I can't get near that. Using a grip for opening jars I can get an extra millimetre but I'm still, as I've said, 2mm shy of the razor tool depth.

I'm measuring from the black plastic motta cap to the high point on the clover, since that's the depth, sorry to state the obvious 🙂

I have a  different manufacture tool, if that's the shallowest you can get then that's what you will have to use, with a little less coffee dose.

So just had a measure and from the black edge to the highest point on the polished metal its 8mm on my setup. I use 17g of coffee beans for reference however this chases depending on what beans I have on the go.  Hope this helps.


I quickly stopped following what Sage advised with the razor tool height.
