Product Description

a simple tamper - steel and wood, nothing much more to it really (unless you count the clearcoat lacquer). but look again... the stainless steel piston is manufactured here in scotland by machinists who normally produce precision parts for the oil, gas and scientific research industries. the handle is natural beech, a plentiful and renewable UK hardwood which is ideal for kitchen tool: ours is sourced and turned in the UK (mostly by bearded men in sheds).

Used with my Gaggia Classic expresso machine- this tamper is made very well and does exactly what you need it to do.

Excellent tamper. A simple thing that is an absolute must for decent espresso creation. A bonus that they come in different sizes and are made in the UK.
Beautifully crafted and a pleasure to use. An ideal replacement for that crappy plastic tamper that came with your home espresso machine ! What are you waiting for.....

This 58mm tamper does what it says, it is 58mm in diameter (something some other 58mm tampers do not actually achieve) and fits perfectly in my Rancillio Silvia espresso group head. Its not the heaviest tamper on the market as i dont think there is any added weight in the handle, but its heavy enough and compresses well. The only negative is that I would like to see the bottom of the tamper polished to a smoother finish. At present its slightly rough as it came off the lathe and can break up the coffee surface if any lateral twist is given during tamping. Although If you just apply straight downward pressure it works fine. Good value for the price and the item is well packaged with quick delivery.

Well overdue for an upgrade from the nasty plastic job supplied by Gaggia, I ordered this as a Reg Barber seemed too costly to justify to my sceptical family. I was stunned by the quality of this tamper and do not regret my decision one bit.
Out of the box the first thing to strike you is the satin finish of the wooden handle. Smooth and wonderfully done you feel the need to pick it up when you see it and have a bit of a fondle. Then the weight and balance registers, spot on.
Tamping the puck is a real treat now. The 58mm is a great fit- could be another half a mm wider but thats just me being fussy. A swift polish of the puck now is really nice- the old tamper had a ridge on the tamp base precluding any real chance.
I need to get the grinder burrs changed now as I can't blame my tamping anymore- upgradeitis has set in.
Will be getting the best beans online from the wonderful Steve Leighton in Stafford so look out overcaffieneation here I wizz.

V happy with this
Big improvement from supplied plastic tamper
Not quite sure this size fits my replacement gaggia basket as well as the 57mm might have done

I was completely satisfied with this tamper. It is very nicely made, I can't fault it. Fits my Gaggia Classic filter perfectly.
