Coffee Knock Box (AKA Knock Bin)

The coffee knock box is one of the simplest coffee accessories you can add to your home barista kit or cafe setup, and one of the most useful and convenient accessories you can buy. These coffee bins are used in the disposal of coffee grounds from the espresso coffee machine group handle after every shot. Although super simple in concept, the choices in coffee knock bins are endless.

These range from small dishwasher safe counter top coffee bang bang knocking tube like the Grindenstein. To slightly larger units like the Crema Pro, Cafelat, Joe Frex, Motta, and Rocket. These units are perfect for the home and office setup, and complement high end espresso machines perfectly.

In a commercial setup, the two common forms of coffee bins are the commercial floor standing knockout tubes and in counter knock box. The floor standing tube has been a common sight in Australian cafes for many years due to its practicality and ease to clean. These tube were generally solid in one pice, or a split-tube in which a liner bag could be used. A barista cloth is also commonly attached to allow to wipe the filter basket after the grounds have been knocked out. The industry leader in this segment has been the Crema Pro commercial knocking tube.

The in counter knock box is now fast gaining popularity over the floor standing knocking tube as it allows for the floor of the cafe to be kept clear and a faster and simpler workflow with the coffee bin being located under the in counter knock box. This however does involve counter space and the counter to be cut which isn't always available especially for those with fridges or coffee jugglers under the commercial coffee machine. These in counter tubes allow for a minimalist look while keeping the mess in a larger bin under the counter. A common in counter knock box is the Rhino Ware or Barista Basic knock boxes.

A well designed tube not only absorb the knocking action, but is easy to clean. Knock tubes with removable cross bars are easier to clean with minimise fuss. And also allows the tube to be easily replaced if needed. Ultimately a coffee grind bin makes for the fast and easy disposal of coffee grounds without the mess.
