The Koa wood espresso tamper handle offers an individual and attractive way to tamp espresso. This tamper handle was carved out of the Hawaiian Koa wood, prized for use in cabinets, furniture and musical instruments. The most intriguing quality of Koa is the way it shimmers in the light giving the exotic wood depth like a gemstone. I particularly like the way the sides of this Koa tamper handle catch and reflect the light. Unfortunately that reflective quality is hard to see in a two-dimensional image, so you will have to admire what you can see in the pictures and take my word for it that the Koa wood tamper is even better in person. It was individually carved by hand so there will never be another tamper handle exactly like this one. More than attractive, this unique bar tool is comfortable and natural to hold and use. I am confident that it will be an ally in your quest for great espresso.
