Make a mess when you grind into your portafilter? The Coffee Catcha tool is designed to keep coffee in your portafilter and off your counter top, ensuring a consistent dose every time. Perfect for home use or commercial applications, this tool can dramatically reduce coffee wastage. On average, 2 pounds of coffee for every 25 pounds used (roughly 8 percent) is saved using the Coffee Catcha.
How the Coffee Catcha Works
- Place the Coffee Catcha on top of the portafilter
- Lightly press your thumb on the handle to keep it in place
- Grind coffee normally into portafilter
- If using a doserless grinder, simply tamp through the Coffee Catcha into the portafilter
- If using a grinder with doser, the tool's funnel will stop grinds from pouring over the edge of the portafilter
- Twist the Coffee Catcha and push excess grinds back into dosing chamber to prevent wastage
- Tamp through the tool and insert into brew head

So all in all, not really, though I may go back and try it again now that I have told you this. I consider what I have spent on these "helps" as money I had to pay to learn I don't need these things in the first place, and I really have to learn the basics and master them like anyone else. But in the end, you will have to make up your own mind. May 28, 2014
A lightweight polished aluminum funnel would be nice but without a handle which will make it unsteady. Aug 2, 2014
It's made to work with 53 mm filters. The handle is flat, but you might have to bend it down a bit so that you can hold the the handle and portafilter handle in one hand.
Is it worth it? It depends on how much you hate cleaning up :-). There's almost no loss when you use it right. Of course I'm very imaginative when it comes to dumping coffee on the counter, but that's another story. May 28, 2014
The metal gram weight is heavy so it fits snug on a portafilter. You can also tamp with the catcha on the portafilter so it's handy. May 28, 2014
It works very well.
It keeps the grinder area much cleaner.
The fit and finish are great for the metal, but the black rubber dip coating is just ok. I would prefer a silicon insulator or something else covering the handle for the high price.
One is paying for the machining of the funnel, it fits nicely for a Rancillo Silva.
I would purchase this again. Jun 3, 2014

User Manuals for your Coffee Catcha Dosing Tool
Great idea but overpricedReview by Luigi
Price Value Quality
The concept and execution of this NZ designed dosing tool is excellent. It stops all the overflow mess from grinding AND allows you to get a proper/more regular dose - immediately my espressos were improved. In fact, this is probably the second most significant addition to my Breville Dual Boiler the first being the Breville knock box. But the price?I It's very
well made (albeit in China) but $79 is excessive - yet in terms of my significant other not yelling at the mess around the grinder it is priceless following the old maxim, if you have to ask the price you can¹t afford it. For $35 or even $40 this would be a steal, at 79 it is expensive but indispensable.
