The Weiss Distribution Technique was developed to distribute coffee grinds through our the brew bed.
To quote Barista Hustle: “The WDT is named for John Weiss, who developed the technique back in 2005 as a way to compensate for grinders, especially smaller home grinders, that produced excessive clumps.
