Carefully crafted, Budan’s tamper ensures that the repeatable action offers support and is comfortable to use. The best part? It’s professionally weighted so you can lean into it without having to place any pressure on your wrists.
Tamping is a very often overlooked aspect of homebrewing, but critical to the quality of your espresso. The tamper is used when brewing espresso, either in a machine or a stovetop espresso maker. This tool is essential for packing the coffee grounds evenly for a quality shot. Essentially, you’re taking it from a loose pile of ‘dosed’ grounds to a tightly compressed cake inside the basket.
