Basic Barista RDT Metal Spray Bottle - Matte Black 50ml
RDT stands for Ross Droplet Technique, in summary adding a small amount of water to your dose of coffee before grinding will reduce the overall static and result in less retention in your grinder.
This method can be achieved by using a cup of water and a spoon, simply use the back of a spoon to dip into the water and then stir this wet spoon through your dose of coffee. However many people prefer using these spray bottles as they are closed off and don't risk spilling, they are refillable and dispense the perfect amount of water every time. These spray bottles in particular and made from Aluminium and coated in a matte black finish to suit all your favourite brewing equipment.
The 50ml capacity may seem small but with around 0.1ml of liquid exiting every spray you will only be refilling your spray bottle after every 500 sprays.
Can I use this for my grinder?
It is important to note that you should double check that your grinder is using burrs that are coated and suitable to withstand small amounts of water otherwise you run the risk of rusting your burrs or causing damage to your grinder. The Comandante MK3 & MK4 grinders are suitable to use this technique. So is the Timemore C2 Coffee Hand Grinder.
