    Eliminate inconsistencies and reduce channeling in your espresso shots with the latest and greatest design of the Nucleus Coffee Distribution Tool aka NCD!

    The new NCD comes with an advanced static-reducing coating, a lower centre of gravity for better stability and it's lighter than ever before! Originally designed by Sasa Sestic in the lead up to his 2015 World Barista Championship, Nucleus has redesigned the NCD to be the ultimate coffee distribution tool. No more finger-distributing, no more fussing over getting a perfect distribution directly from your grinder, the NCD gently smooths out the bed of coffee in the portafilter and leaves a perfectly level surface to tamp on. All that, and it's easily adjustable for a range of dose sizes.

    • Available in Black or Titanium Colour Finish
    • Diameter: 58.5mm (fits IMS and VST Basket)
    • Approximate Weight: 380g (100g lighter than previous models!)
    • Materials: Stainless Steel Centre Part, Anodized Aluminum Adjuster and Locker
    • Patented Design

Works like a charm


I was really looking forward to this product - especially the anti-static coating to reduce mess and keep my puck prep clean and fast. Unfortunately the anti-static coating is completely false and this particular tool is always covered with grounds, making a huge mess. I actually don't even use it anymore and will consider returning. Sad since it's a well made product otherwise.

First WDT, then NCD, then T.A.M.P., then you can be happily channel free.

Note: press down then spin with a little zest clockwise 5-10 times… or as desired for amusement and delight.

This isn’t as useful as they want it to be. It’s not unique from others on the market, and generally just distributes the top layer.

Excellent Distribution Tool

Fantastic distribution and leveling, reducing channeling to help produce great espresso shots! Highly recommend!
