About this deal

A lot of domestic espresso machines come with these flat bottomed scoops which supposedly double as tampers, and these are about as useful as something really not all that useful. These tools work on the surface only, and they do nothing with distribution, even though they're often sold as “distribution tools” or “coffee distributors”, they level the surface, so they're levelers.

Our coffee tamper features a durable stainless steel base and an ergonomic aluminum handle, ensuring precise and effortless tamping. So you will not have the puzzle of using other calibrated coffee tamper: when should I stop tamping powder? By providing Authority to Leave you agree that the parcel is deemed to have been received when left at your premises. Loads of people have developed the technique and made it their own, and the majority of people these days use some form of multi-pronged pointy implement, and these are generally known as “WDT tools”.

TAMPER WITH SPRING: The purpose of the spring here is to bring the tamper collar back to the start position after the powder was tamped. com, Pattern by Etsy, our mobile apps, and other services as our “Services”), you are responsible for complying with this policy, regardless of your location. I'm going to split this into various tamper sizes because unfortunately, this isn't a one size fits all thing. If you're constantly changing tamping pressure (because you're using a daft plastic scoopy tamper thing, or a fish, which would probably work just as well) you'll never fully appreciate the impact of the changes you're making. Etsy reserves the right to request that sellers provide additional information, disclose an item's country of origin in a listing, or take other steps to meet compliance obligations.

There are various other similar tools with similar needle size, but this one seems nice and sturdy, it comes with a stand which I find handy, you can change the needle setup (if you want to) and the number of needles/pins used. What these kinds of espresso machines usually come with, is a plastic thing with a scoop at one end and a flat circular plastic thing at the other end, which is supposed to be a tamper.

Our coffee tampers are designed and manufactured in the UK using only the highest quality materials and precision engineering to deliver a superior experience. You can adjust the force by incrementing the tamper by 1kg at a time, simply dial in the espresso and set the tamp adjusting accordingly. What I do believe however is that any WDT is better than none, for reducing the chances of channeling, and that while a two tooled approach might not actually be any better than one, I don't believe it can do any harm. There's lots of debate about portafilter size and shape, and while some assume that the larger 58mm portafilter size is better because this is what most professional machines use, this isn't necessarily because it's the best, it's more about standardization.
