DESIGNED AND MADE (IN CANADA) WITH CARE
A high-precision tamper with an interchangeable 304 stainless steel tamping surface, machined to a precise 58mm diameter. The short aluminum handle naturally positions your hand in a perfect tamping position to apply a vertical pressure. Get that espresso right, every time.
Thoughts And Objects is a collaborative platform between designers and manufacturers that gives rise to small, exclusive series of high-quality sustainable objects designed for connoisseurs and lovers of beautiful and skillfully made things.
Recommended for home use only.
- 58mm (2.28in) tamper
- Designed in Montreal by RICOSTUDIO
- Made in Canada (Granby QC)
- Grip the tamper comfortably, with the handle sitting in the hollow of your palm (as you would grab a door knob) and the shaft of the tamper handle aligned as an extension of your forearm. There’s no need to grip the tamper very tight. Hold it loosely and comfortably, keeping your wrist neutral.
- Rest the portafilter level on the counter (preferably on a tamping mat so as to not damage the portafilter or the surface). Keeping the tamper level, slowly lower it onto the bed of coffee and press the tamper into the table just until you feel the table pressing back at you. That’s it! There’s no need for a twist of the tamper or for a second tamp. Also, don’t worry if you are pressing hard enough or not. It is better to press consistently and level than to press as hard as you can.
