Automatically times every shot

This automatic espresso shot timer senses when a shot has started and displays the shot time in seconds. The timer automatically stops when the barista stops the shot and resets at the start of the next shot.

Works with any home or commercial espresso machine using 24V, 120V, or 240V grouphead (3-way) solenoid valves (AC not DC).

Installs in minutes

Requires no modification to the espresso machine and installs in minutes without tools. The shot timer can be magnetically mounted to the front or top of the machine.

Built to last

The shot timer runs on a standard coin cell (CR2032) battery for up to 4 years and has been tested to handle the heat and humidity of a busy café environment. Designed in Seattle. Assembled in the USA.

  • The Shot Timer does not work on most E61 grouphead espresso machines. This includes many "prosumer" machines made by Quickmill, Rocket, and ECM.
  • The Shot Timer also does not work on most Slayer espresso machines as they use DC solenoids instead of AC.
  • For machines without a 3-way grouphead solenoid: in some instances you can attach the Shot Timer's sensor to your machine's vibratory or rotary pump. In these cases the timer will time whenever the pump turns on or off. So if your machine has preinfusion with the pump off or if the pump fills the boiler at the end of an extraction, the time could be wrong.
  • Every machine is a little different, but if you send us an e-mail at we can try to help you figure out if the Shot Timer will work with yours.
