The Lapera design team had a long think about puck preparation work flow. The result is the Falcon: a premium disaggregation and distribution tool paired with an equally refined tamper on an elegant powder-coated steel stand. Grind, stir, tamp, pull – ‘nuf said. The design of the distribution tool is the result of a careful analysis of the ergonomics involved and draws on traditional knife-making techniques. We think it achieves the perfect balance for an ultra-fine, precision tool: light in the hand, but not too light, with the balance located past the gripping point. The needles feel like they have just the right heft for fluffing coffee to and with perfect consistency. The tool locks into place in the key-hole opening on the top of the stand. It is a natural gesture of the hand to pick it up and replace, but it won’t fall out on its own.
Stand: powder-coated steel in Lapera Blue with silicone anti-slip pad. Distribution tool: CNC turned and hand-finished mahogany handle, repeatedly oiled and polished to a fine luster, stainless steel bolster and ferrule, replaceable thermoplastic needle cartridge with eight 50mm x 0.35mm diameter needles. Tamper: CNC turned oiled mahogany handle, stainless steel bolster and tamper base. Powder-coated aluminum spacer.
