  1. Barista Hustle tamper in black. Used when I had my espresso setup, but not used since selling that earlier this year. The base plate is free from dings, although there are a couple of light scratches on the tamper itself. I'd like to hold on to this, but I really need to raise some funds, so onwards it must go. £33 posted via RM.
  2. The following wording was taken straight from @MildredM post when I bought this in March from her. It is faultless and I love ising this and the Torr. However if you’ve seen, in the “what did the postie bring you thread”, I’ve just been bought the full Pullman setup of dostribution and tamper so this is now for sale. As I said it is lovely and sure Mildrem will back me up... 58.5mm Torr tamper, flat base, 453g in weight, with dark wood handle Bought from Machina in March 2017 for £101 Very little use £75 delivered
  3. Looking for these if anyone has available for sale
  4. Anyone have a cheap 49-49.5mm Tamper or leveller I can buy please Not looking for anything too expensive as I expect I wont be using it for long
  5. Recommendations on where to purchase a 49mm tamper for my europiccola Thanks
  6. I already have the pesado 58.5mm tamper and so I'm just looking for the depth adjuster like this: If any of you kind people think it might be surplus to requirements for you then I'd love to have it!
  7. Hi everyone, I have gone from a BE which I love and had my leveller and push tamper machined down to suit! I have now just invested in a Vesuvius (thanks @Planter) and ordered my Niche last night along with a push tamper My BE is going soon as went quicker than expected, which means I am hoping the Niche turns up quite quickly along with a tamper which I fear might take a while...otherwise no coffee for me So if all goes well I will have a Niche sooner rather than later but no tamper. If anyone has one nearby they can loan I would really appreciate it. At the moment it is torture looking at my Vesuvius
  8. Motta 58mm convex tamper. £19 posted. Suitable for E61 machines.
  9. I have had my Sage Dual Boiler for a few months and am getting on well with it. If I were to purchase a different tamper, what exact size would I need and what features should I look for? Any particular recommendations and what advantages would that give me in more conistenty good coffee vs the one Sage supplied? Huge thanks for any advice. Jon

    58.6mm Heavy Tamper

    Heavy tamper (hand made from Czech republic) 58.6mm flat £30 delivered. Weight approx. 380g.
  11. Hi all, For one reason or another, after only about 20 months of enjoyment, I'm being coerced by my *ahem* better half, into getting rid of my cherished Gaggia Classic machine and Super Jolly grinder. Gaggia is a 2010 model manufactured in Italy. Both items are in full working order, and it is an extremely reluctant sale, but at least I know these will be going to a good home. The Classic machine will come with a new steam wand attached which I was recommended to get by you good people on the forum. Also a milk jug and a lovely wooden handled tamper. The Mazzer SJ comes with the full sized hopper, and also the 'camera lense' hopper which I've used since I purchased the machine. Both in full working order, and produce the most delightful coffee. Some extras as above, include: Rancillo steam wand Pressurised (x3) and standard baskets (x2) Blank basket for back flushing Flushing solution Nice weighty Motta 58mm tamper with walnut handle Milk jug Milk thermometer Naked portafilter Knock box Camera lens hopper for SJ grinder Extended replacement outlet for portafilter I will put some photos up when I disconnect the machines and get them into some space, and give them a little spit and polish, hopefully saturday morning. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me. I think I will start this at £400 given the number of accessories. I have digital scales but can't find them at the mo. Offers will be considered. Thanks as always, Andy
  12. Hi guys, Looking for some more advice. Are these calibrated tampers worth while for a novice like me? Im struggling to get an even tamp and always twist at the end, grrr. I'm hoping one of these might help with consistency? A naked portafilter is a proper disaster, I have nearly blinded myself twice with the side jets of water. When I first bought the machine from Anton he demonstrated the use of it and it produced perfect results, so I know it's not the machine. Thinking about this one? Any thoughts? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XQVG6GJ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=19UDIENNMC18&coliid=I1EW5OHV13SXHH
  13. A few espresso bits and pieces to move on. The bottomless PFH is like new and of fairly decent quality. I bought the Torr tamper/bases second hand and they've had a fair bit of use so not in exceptional condition but perfectly usable and might be good for someone starting out in espresso. A few baskets and a tamping stand too, looking for £50.00 delivered - UK only. I am based in Edinburgh so happy to deliver within 30 miles or so for free. Any questions just ask.

  14. He anyone got an unwanted one?
  15. I just had a laugh..but this tamper with integrated brush might be handy for busy service http://www.devecchigiuseppesrl.com/e-commerce/imgart/9V0058LT.jpg
  16. I'm looking for recommendations for a tamper which will fit a 15g VST basket snugly. Would be even better if it was available on amazon.co.uk since I have a large gift card from there. Any recommendations?
  17. Ive had my classic for a couple of months now and my shots aren't to bad improved drastically after Purchasing a 57mm tamper but was thinking of buying a 58 MM what do you guys think I've giving up using the single basket
  18. Matt Perger has released a new tamper: https://baristahustle.com/tamper/ I like the price point. I don't really like the look.
  19. In excellent condition, only had light use. £50 inc P&P
  20. I won't have an espresso machine for a while so I'm moving on this lovely tamper. Looking for £80 inc P&P
  21. Gaggia Classic, owned by me from new, 2013 I think. I used to make 1 or 2 drinks per day, but have rarely used it since our son as born in 2014. I now use a Bialetti stove top, which does for me. Its in great condition. Regularly cleaned, descaled and back-flushed. Comes with : Upgraded Rancilio steam wand (a must for these machines in my opinion). Gaggia Double basket. Original baskets, portafilter and stuff. MadeByKnock Tamper. £140 for everything. Collection preferred. I'm in Middlesbrough.
  22. Selling a brand new 58.4mm Pullman tamper for £75. Perfect for VST and Strada baskets. I managed to pick up two of these up at the London Coffee festival, so I'm selling this one. I'll ship for free within the UK .[ATTACH=CONFIG]20638[/ATTACH]
  23. My OCD Distributor arrived in the post on Friday, together with a new Torr 58.55 tamper. I'm amazed at the difference they make, the distributor particularly, very simple but clever piece of kit. My fausto grinder clumps a bit, light fluffy clumps, but still clumps, the OCD just deals with it, the Torr fits perfectly and finishes the job off. Just ordered a ridgeless VST to replace my ridged, apart from that, happy as a pig in muck with my setup now.
  24. Project DIY tamper completed, you don`t actually have to tamp the coffee, just pass the tamper below a laden portafilter and the increased gravity effect flattens the grinds. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/1003/funkee/IMGP288850.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/1003/funkee/IMGP288950.jpg Well, I like it, Reg eat your heart out.

  25. After purchasing my new machine, I think it would be rude not to compliment it with a new tamper, and from various articles and posts I have read, it seems that Reg Barber may be the way to go. Having not paid serious attention to this subject with past machines, I have a couple of questions if anyone cares to assist. - The La Spaziale Vivaldi Mini Mk 1 has a 53mm portafilter instead of the usual 58mm which means I seem to have the option between a 53 C-Flat and a 53mm Flat tamper; what is a C-Flat tamping head and why would I choose this? - Metal/wood handle - any different to use or just aesthetics? - Any recommended suppliers for tamping equipment? - Coffee Hit seems to be a good source. I would also welcome a bit of general discussion on the subject (mainly for my education!) surrounding techniques and individual preferences. Regards, Harry.
