The knockbox, designed for the swift and easy disposal
of espresso grounds, is an essential part of any professional barista’s kit.
There are many different designs of knockbox available. Essentially, the
heavier the knockbox, the easier it will be to knock out the espresso ‘puck’
from the portafilter basket.
Teknomat UK supplies a wide range of knockboxes. From
Concept Art, the top of the range Exclusive Metal Knockbox has a large capacity
of 3.5 litres and features two big rubber blocks at the base for maximum
stability and to protect the surface on which it is placed from scratching.
The Classic Knockbox from Concept Art is a modern
twist on a traditional design. It uses solid grained wood that is more
environmentally friendly than laminated and pasted multiplex panels. The PVC
container inside is dishwasher-proof. If sustainability is a factor, this is a
good choice of knockbox.
The Stainless Steel Knockbox is a more traditional
alternative. It is sturdy and hygienic and features a rubber coated stainless
steel knock bar.
For sites where colour co-ordination is important,
take a look at our Basic Knockbox range from Concept Art, which is available in
three colours – red, grey or black. Don’t be fooled by the name ‘Basic’; this
knockbox is sturdy and the knock bar is heavily damped to minimise noise and
the impact on the portfilter and work surface. This knockbox has a duroplastic
casing that is both dishwasher-proof and food-grade.
