This is the red version, as a rough guide we think the colour is similar to royal mail pillar boxes and vans, maybe slightly brighter.
a high quality 58mm convex bottomed tamper. This item is designed and manufactured in italy, the workmanship is very good and there really is nothing out on there on the market which is anywhere near comparable at this price, it's a virtual give away.
The tamper is better balanced than most in terms of weight distribution, it feels solid and authoritative in the hand and really does a superb job of evenly compressing the ground coffee in the basket.
These 58mm convex bottomed tampers work with all known commercial coffee machine baskets as well as gaggia baby, the gaggia classic models and the rancilio silvia.
If you dose low using a single basket then you may well be better off getting the 57mm tamper, as on some baskets the 58 may jam against the edge of the basket before it is able to reach and consequently tamp the ground coffee.
The 58mm size will not work with the following: san marco, spaziale, iberital expression and any espresso coffee machine utilising a basket with an internal diameter of less than 58mm, if in doubt please have a measure or mail us with your machine make and model if you wish to clarify the situation, we will do our best to help.
THIS ITEM IS SOLD STRICTLY ON A NON-RETURNABLE BASIS.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ITEM IS WEIGHTED HEAVIER AT ONE END THAN THE OTHER, IT IS THEREFORE IMPORTANT THAT IT IS HELD WITH A FIRM GRIP OTHERWISE IT IS EASY TO DROP AND CONSEQUENTLY DAMAGE ON A HARD SURFACE OR FLOOR.
WE HAVE SEEN A NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE THIS THEN TRY TO RETURN THE TAMPER STATING IT ARRIVED WITH A DENT ON THE SIDE OR FRONT OF THE FACE.
THESE TAMPERS ARE INSPECTED BEFORE DESPATCH THEN WRAPPED IN AN AIR BAG BEFORE BEING PLACED IN A BOX.
THERE IS NO WAY WITH THAT KIND OF PROTECTION THEY ARRIVE WITH DENTS OR SCRATCHES ON THEM.
