Good Morning!

Recommended Posts

Hi, newbie here, it's good to find a coffee forum which is for UK as most are American!

 

Anywho, got a delonghi cafe treviso a few years back (wedding pressie). which got me interested in making decent coffee at home. As of today I am now the proud owner of a gaggia baby - a new toy to try and improve my skills & make great coffee. (see pic attached for first attempt at a latte!

 

I have been ordering fresh coffee beans from beanshop.co.uk for a while now. I also grind my own beans using a krups burr grinder.

 

I'm now looking for recommendations for a decent tamper, I don't want to spend loads - around £20-30 mark. are there any recommendations?

 

Regards

Scott
