    I was very impressed to see the quality of this tamper. San Antonio, TX has a limited supply of quality espresso products and had never seen such a highend tamper. I love it!

    Pros:
    Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Commercial Grade

    I like the tamper. It is very well made, nice wood handle, and performs decently with careful use on a bottomless portafilter.

    It would be slightly more comfortable for me with a bit larger handle waist but this is not a big issue. I also like tampers with a bit more heft in the piston, but the balance is good.

    Pros:
    Easy To Use, Easy To Clean
