Product Description

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
  • No mess, less waste - The stainless steel funnel performs beautifully, especially with doserless grinders.
  • Pricey - It will take longer to realize any coffee cost savings when using this tool at home versus in a high-volume commercial environment.
  • Works best with 58mm portafilters - Gaps will be present when used with smaller portafilters.

Why is this product so expensive? Is it worth it, does it feel like a good value when it is in your hands?
Miles G on May 28, 2014
Best Answer: I am up in the air about it. It is a solid tool, pure polished metal, and it helps UP TO A POINT, but it's taking a LONG TIME to pay itself off in terms spilt coffee saved. Is it worth $80.00? NO,I THINK MAYBE ABOUT $35.00 (AND THAT'S PUSHING IT!!!) but you know how obsessive we coffee/espresso lovers can get about it once we have had perfection. I have finally learned to pull great, maybe even perfect, shots with some consistency now that I have down some things about my Rancilio Silvia V3 and Rocky Grinder (doserless model) like proper water temp, grind coarseness and tamping pressure's mutual relationship. An $80.00 "Clicking" tamper to tell me when I reach the right tamping pressure wasn't so much help at all either, except to tell me that I REALLY had to learn these things for myself, not because some little device was helping me and preventing me from seeing what I could REALLY KNOW BY DOING IT MYSELF.
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.

User Manuals for your Coffee Catcha Dosing Tool


saved my businessReview by RastaRista
I work outdoors with a mobile coffee cart, the wind was a huge problem. Also, every gram counts when your a small business entrepreneur. I also now use it indoors at some cafes I gig at. I just like to level my dose with something other than my hand. If this product is out there, find it! (Posted on 1/12/2015)
Great idea but overpricedReview by Luigi
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. (Posted on 6/6/2014)
