This is not just any tamper. The Barista Tamper has been our most loved tamper since day one. It is a perfect example of smart Espresso Gear engineering. Comes in black, but can be upgraded with an extra handle of your choice, which is easy to change.
The Barista tamper is made for professional use. When you make coffee at home making 5 shots per day, a solid, heavy tool is just fine… When serving 300 shots during a shift, it’s not as comfortable wielding an unbalanced solid metal piece.
When others choose aluminium we did as we always do, think differently 😉 The Barista Tamper is the only die cast, hollow base stainless steel tamper on the market. It is perfectly balanced and has a comfortable weight of about 250 grams.
Low energy tamping tampers in general are lathe machined from 60 mm to approx. 20 mm. This wastes a lot of material and consumes far too much energy. In the casting of the tamper the cool thing is that it saves a huge amount of resources with virtually no loss in material. The stainless steel in all our products is also 100% recycled which means that we save 80% in energy resources right from the start.
