I am having a kind of laid back sunday. Not much happening, so I decided to make a small movie clip showing a technique that is used by many norwegian baristi. I am calling it "the stockfleths move", since all the people working there do it. I believe the technique was originally invented by Tim Wendelboe (WBC champ 2004).

I am not sure if I am doing it exactly the way it is supposed to be done (Tim: feel free to comment), but the effect of distributing the coffee evenly round the edges of the filter is there. Basically what you do is overfill the filter, then in a circular motion make a mound in the middle that you swipe off. In addition I like to swipe a little back and forth to be absolutely sure that there are no places where there is less coffee (that can lead to pitting at the edges). After I began using these techniques I never got pitting/channeling anymore.

Now I am going to step out into the sun and find a nice place to sit in the shade and read Dan Brown's book "The da vinci code" (highly recommended btw!).
