4 Key Reasons the La Marzocco Double-Wall Espresso Dosing Cup is a Barista's Must-Have

Barista Tools ~Dosing Cup~Specialty Coffee~La Marzocco

Both as an enthusiast in my personal coffee corner at home and from interactions with various cafés, I’ve come to appreciate the subtle nuances that a tool like the La Marzocco Double Wall Espresso Dosing Cup brings to the espresso-making process.  Here are four compelling reasons why I believe this dosing cup is a great for both home enthusiasts and commercial baristas.


Precision in Every Dose

Achieving the same quality with each shot starts with the right amount of coffee grounds.

Most grinders operate by time, causing fluctuations in the coffee dispensed. While one could measure the coffee in the portafilter, the process can be tedious. The La Marzocco Dosing Cup simplifies this by allowing the barista or home enthusiast to directly measure on a scale, eliminating the need to constantly reset or tare the scale. It ensures that every shot is just right. Ideal for those who prefer to single-dose their coffee, grinding just the right amount of beans for each brew.


An Elegant Solution to Messy Dilemmas

No more stray grounds. Dosing cups mean cleaner countertops and workspaces.

Direct grinding into the portafilter often causes coffee to pile up and spill over, leading to a messy counter and waste of those precious beans. For cafés, even a half-gram waste per shot accumulates to significant costs over time. The La Marzocco Dosing Cup effectively curbs this spillage, presenting a neater, more efficient way of handling coffee, beneficial for both the home and café environment. Grind directly into the dosing cup and easily transfer grounds into portafilter.


Efficient Workflow

In busy cafes and for home baristas serving multiple guests, efficiency is key. At first, a dosing cup might seem like an extra step, but its value in hastening the espresso-making process is clear.

Here’s the simplified workflow: Grind into the dosing cup, adjust as needed, then pour into your portafilter. Immediately, the cup is ready for the next grind. This ensures that by the time you’re tamping and extracting, your next dose is already grinding, virtually erasing any waiting time.

For bustling cafes or hosting at home, the dosing cup is a strategic tool, cutting downtime and ensuring a quicker, smoother coffee prep.

The essence of a perfect coffee brew lies in its taste. While using specialty coffee beans sets the foundation, the true depth of flavor can be unlocked through dosing. 

Accurate dosing ensures optimal extraction of flavors from the beans. A dosing cup becomes indispensable for those keen on single-dosing their coffee, a  technique where one adds a specific amount of beans rather than overloading the hopper. Pairing this with storing beans in airtight containers, instead of the hopper, prolongs their freshness and quality. This approach resonates especially with baristas dedicated to single-origin and specialty brews.
