Great tamper

Tamping is somewhat variable, even for someone with a lot of experience preparing shots. This tamper provides consistency, and that’s an excellent thing toward controlling the workflow in making espressos.

Perfect feeling weight

This is the perfect weight in two senses: it is a calibrated tamper, and helps me tamp with consistent weight everytime, and feels satisfyingly heavy. Light tampers are weird, in my opinion. The handle is not perfectly "smooth", as it has very small ridges. I imagine this helps with grip. If it was made with a lathe, it might also be part of that process.

If I was to give two suggestions about this tamper, I don't really like the sticker on top. Just a personal preference: it is a different texture, and looks only okay. I am also not sure how I feel about the texture of the handle, as I have liked perfectly smooth tampers in the past and never really had a problem with grip. But pretty small issues in the grand scheme of things.

Consistency

I am now using the Espro, flat head, calibrated tamper.

The handle has micro ridges around the handle which give you a secure grip and look good, too.

I used to occasionally have a spraying issue because of over-compacting the puck but this calibrated tamper gave me consistent tamps needed to overcome this.

Espro calibrated tamper

Good quality, ergonomic tamper. The calibration click is a bit subtle so it's best for experienced baristas, but it feels great to use and it's not too heavy.
