A tamper is the piece of metal, most often with a wooden handle used to compress the coffee.

Some coffee machines and grinders do come supplied with attachments of a plastic tamper. But these are generally not recommended as it's difficult to apply the pressure required for a good espresso (25-32lb's)

Many machines have different basket sizes and so require different tampers. below is a list of some of these:


Astoria 58

Astra 56

Aurora 56

Azykoyen 58

Bezzera 58

Brasilia 58

Caramili 58

Conti 56/57

Dalla corte 54

Elektra 58

Faema 58

Futurmat 58

Gaggia 58

Isomac 58

Marzocco 57 - 58 with up-dosing

Nuova simonelli 58

Pavoni 56

Pasquini 58

Rancillio 58

San marco 54-55

Spaziale 53

Synesso 58

Unic 56

VFA 58
