Coffee tamper: The perfect partner for your espresso

Hello coffee lover, hello coffee lover!

If you want to make the perfect espresso at home, you not only need a good espresso machine, but also a good coffee tamper. The coffee tamper is a small but important tool that ensures that your espresso is pressed evenly and compactly. This means the espresso is extracted evenly and retains its full flavor.

What is a coffee tamper?

A coffee tamper is a tool used to press the coffee into the portafilter. It is usually made of metal or plastic and has a flat, round bottom.

How does a coffee tamper work?

To press the coffee, place the coffee in the portafilter and place the coffee tamper on it. Then use the coffee tamper to apply even pressure to the coffee. The pressure should be around 15 to 20 kilopascals.

What types of coffee tampers are there?

There are different types of coffee tampers. The most common types are:

  • Manual coffee tamper: These tampers are used by hand.
  • Automatic coffee tamper: These tampers are operated with a lever or a crank.
  • Pressure-regulated coffee tamper: These tampers ensure that the same pressure is always applied to the coffee.

Which coffee tamper is right for me?

Choosing the right coffee tamper depends on your personal preferences and needs. If you are a beginner, you should start with a manual coffee tamper. With a manual coffee tamper you can control the pressure yourself and adjust the espresso to your liking.

If you are more advanced, you can also use an automatic coffee tamper or a pressure-regulated coffee tamper. Automatic coffee tampers are very convenient to use because you don't have to control the pressure yourself. Pressure-regulated coffee tampers ensure that the espresso is always extracted evenly.

What should you pay attention to when buying a coffee tamper?

When buying a coffee tamper you should pay attention to the following things:

  • Size: The coffee tamper should be large enough to completely cover the bottom of the portafilter.
  • Material: Coffee tampers are usually made of metal or plastic. Metal tampers are more robust and durable, plastic tampers are lighter and cheaper.
  • Weight: The weight of the coffee tamper affects the pressure applied to the coffee. A heavier coffee tamper creates more pressure.

Here are some tips for using a coffee tamper:

  • Always use fresh, freshly ground coffee beans.
  • Grind the coffee finely, but not too finely.
  • Fill the portafilter with the desired amount of coffee.
  • Level the coffee in the portafilter so it is pressed evenly.
  • Squeeze the coffee with even pressure.
  • Carefully remove the coffee tamper from the portafilter.
