Buy with confidence: We only use top quality material for work. We always ensure my customers are satisfied with their purchase and get quality for their money. Tamping is a very important step in the espresso making process. Tamping compresses the ground coffee, slowing the rate at which the espresso is extracted, liberating the full flavor of the coffee. Coffee prepared without tamping will tend to be watery, have a straw like flavor, and will lack crema. How to choose the right Tamper size? When choosing a tamper, it is important to select one with the diameter appropriate for your machine. If your tamper is too small for the basket, certain areas in your 'puk' will experience higher pressure than others, which will result in uneven extraction and a very unpleasant cup. There are two options: 1.To measure the basket. We do not recommend this option, because it needs an equipment this appropriate accuracy and skills to use it. 2. Find machine specification that describes the exact brand model or to contact the manufacturer of the coffee machine for that information. Please do not order the tamper/ base if you are not sure about the size! Customers' feedbacks: "Super high quality product!!! Fast shipping! Only +++++++!" "Exact requested custom dimension."
