It's a pretty plain tamper. Works well, good fit on the VST baskets.
Comes in a hard shell fabric case that seems like a bit of overkill for home, but would be nice if for whatever reason you travel with espresso equipment.
Fit very well with the barista hustle basket
I have had my eye on this tamper for quite some time. It is comfortable, light-weight, and a much improved tool over my original tamper that came with my machine. I am so glad I purchased this. For this price you can’t find a better tamper.
I got this tamper to use with VMS baskets, and it fits very nicely - tight fit on all sides, not leaving excess untampted coffee, but also not dragging.
Shape doesn't seem to cause "suctioning' against the puck when pulled away.
Is also comfortable to hold.
Excellent tamper for the price. The handle is smaller than some (larger than our previous one though) but my wife likes it also. The 2 separate pieces makes it easy for cleaning. Fits our IMS basket near perfectly so that there are no ridges of grinds left around the edges. Also doesn’t bring up grinds as you lift the tamper out after tamping. For the price point, you’re getting an excellent tamper.
Accurate service in term of specification and time.
I was using a very heavy tamper with a very long handle. Since I'm a beginner, that was an unwanted handicap.
This tamper fits fantastically in my portafilter and is so lightweight, it is a pleasure to use.
The company shipped it in a great packaging, and in a reasonably short time. Thanks!
