What Is A Knockout Drawer?
If you have ever watched a Barista make your morning cup of coffee, you’ll have noticed that once they have made the espresso, the coffee grounds (or ‘puck’) are knocked out by turning the portafilter upside down and banging it off a bar so the grounds fall into a metal drawer. This is called a ‘knock drawer’ or a ‘knockout drawer’ and is an indispensable piece of equipment in any professional café or coffee shop.
You can, of course, use one of these at home too, if you have an espresso machine and want to make your kitchen set up as professional as possible. We also supply the knock bars which, as you would expect, wear over time and need to be replaced every now and then. We have budget plastic ones, and heavy duty rubber coated ones, which are quieter and save wear and tear on your portafilter.
If you can't see the item you need, we will do everything we can to help - simply contact us by email or telephone and if we can track the item down for you, we will. We have many different types of knock boxes and drawers available, plus of course hundreds of different Barista items and specialist cleaning products.
