Without identifying and controlling variables, we would not be able to progress as coffee makers. This is where the Pullman System comes in, as we identified the need to take control and support the mission of our existence.

There are many variables needing consideration in the coffees journey from farm to cup. It is our responsibility to ensure the tools used during preparation are not contributing factors. As we know, the most menial inconsistencies can be the difference between a good and great espresso.   

The Pullman System effectively covers; 

Tamping
Distribution
Filtration

Covering many of the variables between the grinder and the machine

 

Since 2002, we have been making espresso tools to control these variables over a wide-variety of equipment, other tools and baristas.

However, as the industry progresses and we learn more about coffee, the importance of accuracy and hence the need for consistency becomes even higher.

The only way to ensure complete control between the grinder and the machine, was to make an entire system, with the guarantee each tool is matched together.

 

 

Why the Pullman System?

 We are the only manufacture in the World to make this range of tools. Why? Because it is our mission to deliver the highest quality tools to help achieve accuracy.  We have complete control, and therefore can guarantee each set to work the same each and every time.

With this quality assured, whether you are a Café Owner, Roastery, Barista, Home Coffee Maker, you can be certain you are able to control the inflicting variables between the grinder, the machine and the barista.

With all the care and development gone into the coffee all the way up until your capable hands, why waste potential during preparation?

 

Pullman System on bar...

"Being roasters of specialty coffee we understand the importance of doing justice to the raw product. We interact directly with coffee farmers who have poured their time, energy, limited funds and love into each of their crops - add a bit of good fortune and the green coffees produced are packed with truly wonderful potential. With this in the forefront of our mind we utilize the most powerful tools we can access as roasters to ensure we do our best to bring out the best in the coffees we roast. But everybody’s hard work can all be undone in the last few seconds of a coffee’s long and difficult journey - the extraction. It only makes sense to harness to best tools available to help baristas achieve the most even extraction possible, consistently - to help them represent that coffee to the best of their ability. The slogan sums it up perfectly: Control what you can control. We don’t rely on anybody other than Pullman and their well thought-out and thoroughly tested products to help us achieve that.

We recommend the Pullman System (Big Step + Tamp Sure combo, Chisel and baskets) to all our wholesale partners. Not only does it improve extraction quality and consistency, but it also improves workflow and alleviate barista cognitive load - baristas are less stressed and are better able to enjoy their work and engage more fully not just with the coffee but with the customer and their experience. Wins all round!"

Innovation and growth in this industry is what excites us! The ongoing discoveries and developments in equipment, barista technique, coffee farming, roasting, brewing and testing is what drives us to find new and exciting ways to equip the barista with tools to match their ever-expanding skill set!

The Chisel Re-Distribution tool has been tested on bar world-wide and is pulling some great results. So, we have now extended our tool kit beyond the standard commercial 58mm Group Head machines. 

SPECIFICATIONS:

•  Step-less depth adjustment
•  Light-weight (431.5g)
•  Starts at 6% surface area compression
•  A “chisel” shape is utilised with a steep angle of the face ensures density of coffee is not localised
•  A low-friction contact surface for the spinning action - stainless on stainless – reducing chance of repetitive strain injury
•  Hand finished base resulting in less static build-up
•  316 grade stainless steel

 TECHNICAL 101

Any tool that pushes coffee in a downward motion is tamping.

To help increase the goal and chances of even puck density, there needs to be a happy compromise of enough equal downward motion (tamping) and horizontal movement (re-distribution) leaving still enough movement of compression when tamping. Here’s what will happen if you do-not set the Chisel correctly:

NOT ENOUGH DOWNWARD AND HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (CHISEL BASE DEPTH SET TOO SHALLOW) 

Increased air pockets due to coffee being separated by ‘pulling’ grinds during movement

Channelling not only through uneven sides, but also chance of channelling through the centre of the coffee puck due to uneven density formed by these airpockets (even after tamping)

TOO MUCH DOWNWARD AND HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT (CHISEL BASE SET TOO DEEP)

After using, the tool will create too much downward motion and not enough sideways/horizontal movement resulting in uneven coffee puck density

Performing tamp action after this step will unseat or potentially crack the coffee puck leading to increased chances of channelling but also uneven water path/flow during extraction

LEARNING TO SET THE DEPTH OF THE CHISEL BASE TO USE THIS TOOL TO ITS BEST CAPABILITIES IS BY FAR THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS TOOL.

The ‘happy’ place, meaning the correct depth setting, is a mixture of just enough downward/sideways re-distribution but also allowing some compression movement during the tamping stage.

Again, after performing the re-distribution with the Chisel, if when tamping there is not much compression or downward movement, the Chisel is set too deep and conversely, if there is too much compression or downward movement when tamping, the Chisel is not set deep enough.

WE HAVE FOUND THAT THERE IS A ‘HAPPY’ PLACE WITH MOST DOSES (IRRESPECTIVE OF ITS ROAST LEVEL, THOUGH THIS MUST BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT WITH SWITCHING BETWEEN ROASTS) TO BE AROUND A 2MM OF TAMPING COMPRESSION OR DOWNWARD MOVEMENT.

This helps achieve a better chance of even distribution using the Chisel, but still allows the tamping action to properly perform the task that its meant to - compressing the air pockets out of an evenly distributed coffee bed.

 IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER!

The biggest thing that many users discount is the way in which the coffee is being delivered into the basket. (Initial distribution)

If your grinder is delivering the grind into one corner of the basket, the density in that area will increase and adversely the density in the other areas of the basket will decrease.

Attention must be paid to the way the coffee falls into the basket and must be cared for and coaxed into an even delivery where possible, no matter if a re-distribution tool is being used or not.
