Well, if there was ever a product that epitomised the mantra, 'you get what you pay for' then this is it.

I think a lot of people rave about this because it is 'cheap' - but is it cheap? Or have we just become accustomed to paying through the nose for shiny metal - which is essentially what it is. I'd argue the latter.

In the description they say 'made of heavy cast alloy' - which of course could be any recycled material/junk metal (hence it would be cheap). The product is however, NOT heavy, and by the very fact it is made of an alloy is proof of that. It is quite light and this also explains the 'free' postage, because were it heavy that wouldn't be thrown in.

In terms of quality, well, as a piece of cast alloy you might think there is not much room for debate on quality, but this product proves there is. As you can see from my customer photos, the two-part cast has a very thick and unsightly lip that runs along the joint - conveniently this cannot be seen their product photo! There is no sign of finishing nor refining either and this means that with the added ridge sticking out, the tamper won't fit into my espresso basket and thus won't tamp tightly. So I will have to use the smaller end and move it around - risking an uneven tamp. Furthermore, the tamping surface is not flat/level, it is slightly convex but not enough to give the impression that this is a genuine design, rather a shoddy finish.

My advice? Pay a bit more and buy a product with style, class; and one that you will be proud of and enjoy using. if you need a tamper for camping (which is what this one will end being used for) that is cheap and light, then buy one of these.

Cast alloy. Feels very strong. Two head sizes 1 for larger coffee filters. Smaller end fits my Gaggia filter head fine. Cannot believe the price and FREE SHIPPING! from USA. Bought 2 one as a Christmas present for a friend. Estimated arrival was 4th Jan, arrived on 22nd Dec!! Nice one.

Nice to hold, with useful dual sizing of coffee tamper at each end. Small end is apprx 48mm and the large approx 55mm.

I have the Gaggia Cubica Plus expresso machine and the smaller of the heads is just a little smaller than the diameter of the coffee holder, so you can give it a good squash down and get all the small bits of coffee from the sides.

I was using the end of a rolling pin to do the same job.............. but I now class my self as a true barrista!!

Good price, but had to wait a couple of weeks to arrive, but this is all set out clearly as you know it is being shipped from the US. Just keep using the rolling pin until it arrives!!

Thought this was a good idea for a gift for the man in my life who loves coffee. It really exceeded my expectations, and he thought it was fantastic. After previously using a teaspoon to compact the coffee, this clever idea is so much better at the job. If you love proper coffee from a pot, buy this tamper, you'll love it!

What a bargain!! Looks good, feels good and tamps down as it should - and it was post free from USA!! I am using a Gaggia Cubica and it fits the basket very well.

Good solid tamper with 2 sizes. Good price and time to arrive considering it's from the US. Just bear in mind it does take about 6-8 working days to arrive, but worth the wait.

To get this for less than £5 with free delivery from the US is unbelievably good value. I really did not expect too much but it is terrific quality.
It is a nice casting and in real money the heads are 56 mm and 50 mm so it is very versatile.
It did take a week or two to arrive but for the price who cares!

Highly recommended.
