  • Introducing the pinnacle in coffee distribution! DUOMO The Eight brings competition level extraction with every shot of espresso. Using DUOMO The Eight is a very pleasurable experience. The high-quality aluminum body feels great in the hand and looks even better on your countertop. The Eight is very ergonomic, and can excel in a busy cafe or compliment a meditative, morning espresso routine. The action of the press is very satisfying, the spin is effortless and effective, and the base has a built in brush to keep the eight needles nice and tidy.

    DUOMO designed The Eight around the technique of the Weiss Distribution Technique (WDT). The Eight perfects the WDT and produces a more even, efficient and clean distribution (good-bye funnel and paper clip!). The design and placement of the eight needles allow for optimal performance. The end result is fluffy espresso that is evenly distributed throughout the entire basket. Shots pull more consistently and showcase the espresso in its truest form.

    Clumpy, poorly distributed espresso, meet your maker!

Flawless naked drip

From day one, I am able to create excellent naked shots without splashing or spraying. Of course I tried everything else but failed often. Great product and very easy to used. A bit expensive!

The Best Distribution Tool

I have all the tools and gadgets, but this is Superior to All. Firstly, the weight is substantial, the machining is precise, and the action is flawless. It cleans beautifully. It consistently makes the coffee airy and tall. I then follow w my Distribution Tool and Tamper and get beautiful results.
It is essential in my workflow.
Great Job Duomo and Eight ounces for quick shipping to NY

An essential in my mind

This accessory has had the single biggest impact on my espresso shot, now consistently pulling shots without any channeling. Very noticeable difference when looking at the flow coming out of the bottomless portafilter.

Immediate resulte

I love this tool after just one use. As mentioned you may not need this, but it works for me. I've been using the yogurt cup and sewing needle technique for 1000s of shots, with decent results. I use a naked Portafilter and the slightest bit of clumping is noticeable. Duomo the eight gave me a superior pull the first time, and I can tell after one use that my coffee zone will remain much cleaner. 2 thumbs up for Duomo.

Is it worth it?

Yes it has made a difference in my distribution and reduced channeling but it is absolutely a coffee geeks toy and you definitely don’t need it.
And the cost is high
But as my buddy said...
“I have room on my counter for it”

It’s nice.
