When pulling a shot of espresso, there are several factors of chief importance to the process. Besides keeping your machine clean, selecting great beans and freshly grinding them to the correct size, espresso must also be tamped properly with the use of a great new tamper. Espresso tampers are the tools used by baristas to pack the espresso grounds into the portafilter, ensuring that the heated water is forced through the grounds at just the right rate for delicious espresso. The tampers vary widely in size, shape and even handle material allowing baristas to find just the tamper that works best. We offer solutions for every preference. Choose from stainless steel or wood handle, chromed metal, aluminum and more. Choose the size and shape that is right for you, sort this category by weight, height and tamper diameter to get the best fit possible.
Espresso grounds that have been tamped too tightly will take longer to brew resulting in a bitter flavor while those packed too loosely will lack the richness and flavor of a properly brewed espresso shot. We offer a comprehensive selection of espresso tampers to choose from, helping every barista find a tamper that works for them. Espresso Tampers are an essential item to add to your coffee supplies, without a good one, there is no way that your baristas will be able to create specialty espresso drinks or serve the perfect shot, ensure that every cup of espresso you brew comes out great with a new espresso tamper among your coffee supplies.
