More information about Tampers

If you want to make a great espresso, tamping is an essential step that you must get right. You don’t want to give your customers something that is below standard and doesn’t taste good. For any barista, the aim is to ensure that the heated water passing through the coffee grounds extracts all the oil which makes coffee taste great. But this will not be possible if the coffee is not distributed evenly in the basket. 

Coffee Tamper ToolsThat’s why you need a good tamper to ensure that the coffee is evenly distributed in the basket. This is simply a tool with a flat base and a handle that presses the coffee grinds in the basket. As an essential barista tool tampers help create pathways for the water and reduce pockets of air in the coffee grinds.

Why Do We Tamp Coffee?

For those in the business of making espresso, tamping is a necessary step that you cannot afford to miss or do wrong. In fact, the quality of the coffee is greatly determined by how well the tamping was done. The quality of the tamper and the pressure used to level the coffee grinds are two important things that you need to consider.

You need to find the pressure that works for you based on your grind setting. Otherwise, you will never get the perfect espresso. For instance, too much tamping pressure can result in a bitter taste, while too little pressure can result in a watery shot. That’s why it’s important to have a tamp in your café. You don’t want to serve your customers with either a bitter or watery cup of espresso. This would affect both the quality of the coffee and your reputation as a barista.

A coffee tamper helps you to pack the grounds into the portafilter for delicious espresso. Note that the art of brewing espresso is all about passing heated water through the coffee to extract the sweetness of the beans. If the coffee is un-tamped, then the extraction process will not work properly. This will result in a poor quality espresso, and you will not be able to retain customers.

Choosing Your Coffee Tamper

You must make sure that you've invested in the best coffee tamp to ensure that quality of your coffee stands out from the competition. This is the only way that you are guaranteed to have regular customers in your café. The most important thing that you need to check is the size of the tamper. The trick is to choose the right size for a perfect fit. the 58mm tamper is generally the most popular size for commercial machines.

Branded TampersWhile shopping for tampers, the reputation of the manufacturer is something that you need to consider carefully. At Barista Warehouse, we have sampled some of the best brands in the industry. One such brand is Pullman.

Some of the popular Pullman coffee tampers include Cobalt Blue Flat, Honey Bee Flat, Nexus Jarrah flat, Australian Oak Flea, Pullman big step base, Nexus Checkerboard flat and stealth black flat.

Rhino tampers are also popular, for example the Rhino pro silver, Rhino flat tamper, and Rhino pro-black.  Note that these varieties come in different sizes for perfect fitting. You may also purchase them in parts such as the handle or the base.

Reg Barber is another brand with numerous selections of tampers. They come in different colours and sizes and are also available in parts. You can opt to buy the handle or the base depending on your needs. Other brands that we highly recommend include Pesado and Puq Press.
