When you have the right tamper, tamping right becomes easy. When buying an espresso machine like the Sage Barista Express, Barista Pro, or Touch, it often comes with a basic tamper that just is not great. Not just in looks but also in comfort and weight.
The classic grip of our 53.3mm tamper makes tamping comfortable. The right grip and weight of the tamper allow you to evenly tamp your coffee grounds while maintaining the right amount of pressure.
Using a tamper correctly is a crucial step in the espresso-making process to get a good extraction. Before using the tamper make sure your coffee is leveled (or distributed), this prevents channeling. You can use one of our 53.3mm distribution tools for this.
The solid steel tamper base is a perfect fit for your portafilter, creating an even surface.
Depending on your grip choice, our 53.3mm tampers have a specific weight. The difference in weight does not affect results but you might have a personal preference:
– Wooden tamper: 320gr
– Black tamper: 380gr
– SS tamper: 710gr
