      While rummaging through old boxes in the garage I came across some canning supplies (some distant PNW fetish). I looked at this funnel  & immediately thought of the WDM. I've been using it for a couple of days & it is an improvement over the Dixie cups I'd used before. I have noticed slightly less channeling using the WDM, but if it's not convenient it won't get used.

      With the funnel I use a long-tined table fork. I dump the coffee in & run the fork through one direction then run it 90 degrees to the initial pass. I don't normally recommend froo-froo stuff, but this idea worked so I'm passing it along.

                        Weiss Distribution Technique (WDT)

                        This is a distribution technique where you use a tool like a long needle or a straightened out paper clip to stir up the ground coffee in the portafilter.  The idea behind the WDT is to get the ground coffee distributed as evenly as possible.  The process is pretty simple, but takes a couple extra seconds making it useful only in the home environment (in a cafe environment, the WDT would slow down production).  By stirring the grounds, you eliminate any voids that you may not be able to see below the surface and even out the distribution throughout the basket.  Your goal is for the coffee to have equal resistance across the entire puck so that the water passes through evenly.  Feel free to stir vigorously and get that stirrer down all the way to the basket (I make a slight scraping noise when I stir).  It should take about 5 to 10 seconds to do the WDT.  After stirring, level as you usually would, using a finger or a straight edge.  Now you're ready to tamp, lock and brew.
