What does a coffee dosing funnel or dosing ring do?

To achieve a clean coffee grinding process, an additional tool comes in handy. You’ve probably experienced the frustration of struggling to keep all the coffee grounds in the filter basket, resulting in a messy countertop. That’s where the coffee dosing ring or dosing funnel comes into play, helping you prevent this coffee wastage.

Simply place the coffee dosing funnel on top of your portafilter. The barrier created this way makes it easier to keep all the ground coffee neatly contained within the filter basket. This is particularly beneficial when using a WDT (Weiss Distribution Technique) tool.

A coffee dosing ring is a valuable addition for every home barista. Its value lies in the ability to work neatly, preventing your precious coffee from ending up on the floor instead of in your portafilter.

Should I go for a dosing funnel or a dosing cup?

Aside from the dosing funnel, there is also the option of choosing a dosing cup. So, what sets these two apart? Those who prefer single dosing often opt for a dosing cup. It offers the convenience of easily dosing both coffee beans and ground coffee, with the help of your coffee scale’s tare function.

The dosing ring allows for quicker operation since there’s no need to flip anything over. The extra step of flipping the cup can be seen as inconvenient. Lastly, it’s worth noting that a dosing ring is generally more affordable, as it requires less material to manufacture.
