BUY COFFEE TAMPER AT AROMATICO
With the smooth, metallic surface and the ideal contact pressure of the tamper, the coffee grounds are optimally prepared for preparation in the espresso machine. In addition, there are also different designs here, for example, some of the manufacturers also offer hand tamper with a wooden handle, while the tamper base is made in most cases of stainless steel. When it comes to tampering, there is no right or wrong design, only individual preferences in use. At Aromatico, we provide several different sizes, colors and varieties of coffee tampers in our range, because ideally the tamper you buy has the same diameter as the brewing sieve of the portafilter machine. Thus, before buying a tamper, it is important that you know the exact millimeter of your portafilter.
WHAT IS NEEDED FOR TAMPING
If you want to be optimally equipped, you will need the following products for tamping:
- Coffee Leveler
- Coffee tamper
- Tamper mat or tamping station
COFFEE LEVELERS PREPARE THE COFFEE FOR EXTRACTION
Levelers, also known as leveling tools, are used before the coffee tamper makes its appearance and is allowed to press the ground coffee. A leveler smoothes the coffee powder evenly in your portafilter espresso machine. This is not for looks, but to prevent channeling, allowing for better extraction of the espresso. Discover at Aromatico coffee levelers in different colors and sizes and made of different materials.
COFFEE TAMPER IN ALL ITS VARIATIONS
There are different variations of tampers. The narrower and longer a handle is, the better the coffee tamper behaves in handling. Furthermore, a distinction is made between soft-convex and convex bottoms. The reason for this is the smooth metal wall of the sieve. Even well-compressed coffee grounds often stick out at the edge, which makes it easier for water to find its way through the coffee grounds. Convex tamper are slightly curved and create stronger pressure towards the edge, making the coffee grounds more compressed and harder to trickle through. Coffee accessory manufacturer Motta, in particular, regularly launches tampers in a wide variety of shapes, colors and materials. Motta tampers have proven themselves and inspire our customers. With a matching and stylish tamper, pressing on the coffee grounds is much more fun!
CHOOSE A TAMPER MAT OR CHOOSE A TAMPER STATION
A tamper mat is a cost-effective way to protect the work surface where you press the coffee grounds into the portafilter using a coffee tamper. The tamper mat is created from non-slip silicone and protects the tray from scratches as well as dirt during tamping. Alternatively, you can buy a tamper station that replaces the tamper mat. Tamper stations are available in many different designs. Models with a body made of durable, robust stainless steel have proven themselves with their combination of functionality and design. They hold the sieve reliably and at the same time withstand high pressure, are hygienic and easy to clean. Rubber feet ensure a non-slip stand, a storage surface with a recess prevents the tamper from slipping.
