A knock box is an essential implement for every semi-automatic espresso machine owner. It reduces the effort and mess of getting the spent coffee grounds out of your porta-filter. Instead of trying to dig the grounds out, you just invert the porta-filter and rap it down on the knock box cross bar to eject the spent "puck" of coffee grounds into the knock box.

The polished finish and its rounded shape make this knock box stand out from the crowd. The knock bar is protected by a rubber wrap to absorb the force from your portafilter. The Rocket Espresso stainless steel knock box has a large 30oz capacity and features durable construction capable of withstanding daily use.
Eliminate trips to the garbage can or sink to dispose of your spent coffee grounds with the classic Rattleware Basic Knock Box. Enclosed in maple, the Basic Knock Box neatly holds your used coffee grounds.
Padded by a thick rubber foot, this stainless steel knock box is not moving anywhere when knocked into! It stays in place and you don’t have to worry about scratching your counter top. The stylish j curve cut profile allows you to knock your coffee grounds into the box without the worry of coffee splashing all over the counter. The knock bar is encased in rubber tubing to protect your portafilter when knocking. And, the knock bar is held in place by two rubber gaskets and is easily...

Needless to say, I was stoked. So, I grabbed some coffee, our hot water kettle, and a few volunteers, and we went to town.
There’s really a lot to like about this machine, but one of the first things that struck...

It's always exciting when we get new products, but it’s even more exciting when I can use them for recipes! So, I was obviously delighted when I discovered that we had not one, but three new varieties of Monin syrups that we would be adding to our repertoire of flavors: Cinnamon Bun, Banana Nut Bread, and Cupcake. And of course, there’s really no better way to showcase one of these new flavors than by putting it in a drink! I give you the Cinnamon Bun Latte.
