Distribution tool path
I've been experimenting with different patterns of moving the grinds with the distribution tool, but I've yet to settle on one. If I swirl it about the edges, I end up with a hole in the centre; but if I swirl closer to the centre, I end up with walls of coffee rising over the edges of the basket on one side or another. On the other hand, if I just trace out random patterns, I get random results. What do others do?

will add more to the blog, also improve on the video clip, hopefully later this month
I next pour the grounds into the basket, employing an OE dosing ring, through which I WDT. Then, if needed, I level the grounds roughly with the edge of a palette knife, rather than tapping the basket. Finally,I give the surface a quick spin with an OCD distribution tool and drop the prepared basket into a bottomless pf.
I have a pre-R Londinium 1, and I find that with lighter roasts I have to wait too long for drops, so I just release the lever after 10" pre-infusion. That usually results in the lever catching at 45 degrees and a picture-perfect pour. I aim for a flow rate of roughly 1g per second.
Thanks, very useful.
