This ceramic tamper creates the perfect espresso, or caffè lungo. It is used for packing the coffee grinds in the ‘puck’ so that the hot water evenly seeps through the grinds and produces the best coffee taste possible. The ceramic material provides a nice and heavy grip. The tampers have a slighly convex bottom, which makes that the hot water will run through the grinds rather than flowing down the side of the puck. Due to its handmade nature, none of our coffee tampers are completely symmetrical. A coffee tamper of 58mm will always fit in a 58mm puck, but may be very slightly oval and have a very small clearance.
