THE COMB, BARISTA HUSTLE
The Comb is a 'Weiss Distribution Technique Tool' (WDT-tool), especially designed by Barista Hustle with the goal to give the barista full control on the distribution of ground coffee. This tool is manufactured with durable materials and contains 25 carefully placed holes, which enables you to choose the amount of needles you use, and how you position them.
The handle of The Comb is made with silicone rubber and therefore practically indestructible and can tolerate any regiment of dish-washing and bar service. The needles are 501 grade stainless steel for flexibility and corrosion resistance.
Don't worry if you end up bending or breaking one of the needles: The Comb comes with 30 needles, so you start with 5 spare needles in case of damage. They also come in a handy tube with lid so you won’t lose them in the fray.
At Barista Hustle they concluded that 0,35 mm is the perfect needle thickness, which results in perfect distribution of the grounds. Too thick and you leave deep trails in the grinds. Too thin and you don’t get any distribution done. If you’re finding the Comb is still not quite right for your grinds, you can adjust the width between the needles thanks to the 25 pockets.
Most WDT-tools come with stock standard acupuncture needles which are super sharp. The needles of The Comb are rounded. No more finger pricks or basket scratches.
A closely packed hexagon or a straight rake both achieve different results. The Comb is designed to suit your style of WDT.
