    The OCD... Just what I need!
    I'd give it a go, not sure I'd pay $165 for one though.

      It may well be a very appropriate acronym. I wonder if Sasa has his staff using them at the Cupping Room? I might have a look next week.

        I used a Great Leveller last year. It was a little frustrating with changing humidity conditions throughout the day up here in Bananabenderland but it presented a perfectly levelled/tamped dose which was really nice. It's easy to adjust; just need a 6mm hex key. Sasa's OCD would be interesting to try up here.

          Here's the blurb without the link

          "Making delicious coffee is all about understanding variables & taking control of them. Distribution creates major variables standing in the road of quality & consistency. The OCD eliminates those inconsistencies.

          The OCD has four angled slopes that consistently, efficiently & evenly glides the coffee around in a circle to create a puck of even density. No more inconsistencies between baristas’ distribution or lack of distribution in the café.
          The OCD creates a perfectly flat surface to tamp upon, creating more consistent puck density. No human has a perfectly straight finger, some baristas leave a slight mound or divot in the coffee, which means they tamp down inconsistencies in the puck density.
          The OCD can be adjusted to suit a range of doses, depending on specific roasting styles. This tool can even suit those using very low doses or larger baskets.
          No more dirty, cracked coffee fingers after a day of service on the espresso machine.
          No need to collapse the dose. After extensive taste testing with multiple coffees & different roasting styles, we have found any form of collapsing to stratify grinds, creating very inconsistent extraction & qualities of taste (separate to yield). Each barista will also collapse differently, creating yet another inconsistency in the café. The OCD takes the same time to create a more even & consistent puck, giving more consistent & delicious extractions.
          Less channelling & micro-channelling, improper or rushed distribution, is more likely to channel which is disastrous to taste. Micro-channelling is also difficult to visually identify & is more likely to happen with inconsistent or no distribution – the OCD will remove this variable."

            ONA OCD Distribution Tool

            Has anyone else been keeping an eye on the release of this tool?
            Created/produced/sold by Sasa Sestic of ONA coffee

            A simple tool to assist with even distribution of grinds in the PF.
            The results in the video look pretty good imo.
            A little disappointed in the price but perhaps it's aimed at commercial operations.

                Wouldn't the act of placing the tool on grounds itself change the density on the thickest part of the tool (i.e. the cross)?

                  Curiosity got the better of me.

                  They're on backorder, but I have ordered a few (including one to play with)...

                      How did you go with it? Thinking about picking up a few for myself.

                          Our stock arrived today. Hoping to have time for a play tomorrow.

                            I'm interested in what you think of the ONA Coffee Distributor, mite have to get one.

                              I had a quick go today over about 10 shots. It does work well.

                              For those who like to updose, it probably won't be of much use, but if you dose normally or low and fine, it definitely cleans and levels the puck for tamping. It's adjustable to height as well.

                              My natural dosing can lead a little towards the occasional doughnut extraction. I felt today's extractions were probably more even. Chanelling is not something I often experience, so I can't really comment if it makes much difference to that.

                              It's beautifully finished and the casting is gorgeous. Exxy, but I guess you only have to justify the spend to yourself.

                              I'll keep one on demo at the shed for those keen to have a go.
