Q. How do you know how deep to set the leveller?
A: You'll know it's set too deep if you get edging or the Jack does not contact the top rim of the filter basket. If too shallow , the coffee is not compressed fully. You can touch the surface of the coffee puck to get an idea of how solid it is after leveling. If it gives a lot, set the leveller deeper.
Q. Does this really tamp and level - no need for tamper?
A: Once you have set the correct depth for your type of coffee - yes no need to tamp after wards.
Q. I have a 58mm filter basket - will it fit that?
A: PROBABLY - most 58mm baskets leave a little wriggle room - measure just in case.
Asso Jack adjustable leveler 58.5mm Grey
A tool that gives results & worth the investment.
The Jack leveler is easy to adjust and with a simple (light) push and swivel(s), it makes a perfectly level & solid puck. Compared to cheaper levelers, i have immediately noticed a much better extraction and ZERO channeling. If anything, i would highly recommed this tool to any aspiring/hobby Barista who is looking to make consistently good shots with ease. Despite not having to tamp, i do find it works better with a light tamp. A calibrated Espro tamper is what i use, which is a fantastic tool as well. Overall. the jack leveler is a GREAT tool have and despite a high price tag, the quality & results are well worth it. Service from BSC was first class; from assistance to rapid shipment & packaging - everything was flawless. 10/10!

Asso Jack adjustable leveler 58.5mm black
Im in Australia and i was told 9 days shipping, i received my order in 5 days. I got tracking with my order, i ordered various barista pro nanotech baskets and the jack leveler, i was worried that i would receive after market crap but everything was original. I would also like to add that these products are not available in Australia, no one in USA or UK apart from Blu StarCoffee were willing to ship these items to me. Very happy with the service, price and products. Fantastic, love you long time :)
