What is a domestic coffee knock box?
The domestic coffee knock box is an item used to dump spent coffee ground into. Typically it is size which decides the one to buy. The purpose is to provide an alternative to using the waste bin.
For home use coffee making, smaller boxes are ideal. Because the footprint is very small they fit well. For example the 110mm version works in small modern kitchens, found in new build flats.
Crema Pro – The two sizes available
Firstly there is the 110mm model. It’s so cute! This will fit almost anywhere. The volume of the box is tiny. Therefore this would suit someone who drinks just one or two coffee drinks per day. It is good practice to empty the domestic coffee knock box regularly. This size encourages that.
Secondly is the 175mm version. This is bigger and therefore more substantial. The box will accept a fair few used coffee grounds from an espresso machine. This could also be used to tap stove top inserts into. The bigger version is popular with commercial users too. This is primarily because the Crema Pro boxes are tough. They are easy to move around in a busy coffee shop and cheap to replace.
