While the original Churchwarden Doppio has been sold, we are more than happy to indulge requests for this style of tamper. Please note that every tamper's grain will have its own unique characteristics, and thus each will be one of a kind. Still in love with this style? Contact us today!

The Churchwarden Doppio Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper was named after the churchwarden pipe shape with its characteristically long stem and doppio, the Italian word for double. Doppio reflects the way this handle brings together two different kinds of wood, maple on the bottom and briar on the top. The standout feature of this handle is its height of 4 ¼” not including the base. For some baristas, this taller shape is the perfect fit. I find it interesting that both those with larger and smaller hands like this tamper, so it seems to be a matter of personal preference and not primarily hand shape. The gentle swelling in the middle of the handle and the narrow rounded top give this handle a pleasing feel in the hand. As with every Cavendish Series espresso tamper, the Churchwarden Doppio beautifully exhibits the grain patterns of briar. The combined shape and beauty of this handle make it truly unforgettable.
