The ESPRO® Calibrated Tamper is a precision 30 lb factory-calibrated force-feedback tamper you can count on to take an important variable out of making the perfect espresso.
Pressing down until the barista hears the click allows for the ground coffee to be evenly tamped which increases the water resistance and achieves optimum extraction of the coffee.
As such there is less chance of having ground coffee uncompacted resulting in coffee being ‘over-extracted’ and thus tasting very bitter.
An even distribution would minimise the chance of having part of the coffee packed too tightly resulting in coffee which would be ‘under-extracted’, or barely touched by the water.
No wonder millions of shots of espresso have been made with ESPRO® tampers!
Product Diameter = 58 mm *
* The Coffee Tamper is only suited to coffee filter baskets which are no smaller than 58 mm in diameter. Ideally this tamper needs to be the right size for your filter basket. If the tamper is too big, it won’t fit your filter basket; if it’s too small, it will only tamp some of the coffee and you’ll need to tamp several times.
Sirius Coffee recommends that you measure the diameter of your coffee filter basket to ensure that this is the correct size.
There is no warranty covered by Sirius Coffee for purchasing an incorrect tamper size in relation to your filter basket.
