Prima Coffee Espresso Tamper
Why do we love it?
The base of the Prima tamper is of a hefty 304 stainless steel design. This solid steel base combined with the light, detachable aluminum handle adds balanced weight to the tamper which helps aid the barista in providing an even tamp, shot after shot.
Any barista will tell you that one of the most important tools for making great espresso is their tamper. The most important characteristics of a great tamper are a well-balanced and sturdy build along with a comfortable fit in the hand. While we were able to find tampers that met this criteria, most of them demanded a hefty price tag. We knew that we could design a tamper that met all of these necessary requirements and was affordable. Our solution is the Prima Coffee Tamper. With an aluminum handle, heavy-duty stainless steel base, and carefully crafted design, the Prima Coffee Espresso Tamper brings quality, comfort, and durability at an affordable price.

$53.00Hario's stainless steel water kettle, the V60 Buono, has been spotted popping up in coffee houses and the kitchens of baristas for some time now. A detailed search on the web will reveal, for the moment at least, that the Buono seems to be widely accepted as the most useful pouring kettle available. What makes this kettle so popular amongst pour-over enthusiasts? Several reasons stand out.
First, the thin pouring spout enables greater pouring precision as well as a slower, more consistent and controlled rate of pour, both of which are very helpful in achieving a precise, prolonged extraction.
Second, the stainless steel construction and large 1 liter capacity contribute toward keeping up the brew temperature for the duration of the entire brew cycle.
Third, the ergonomics involved in the design of the kettle help to make using it much easier. This may not seem like much, but if you're brewing large batches of coffee and pouring for three or more minutes per batch, doing several batches of coffee will quickly become a chore if your kettle doesn't cooperate with you.
Combine all of these facets with the fact that the Buono is manufactured by Hario, a very popular name in the coffee-brewing community, and the kettle's popularity is easily understood. For best results, combine the Buono with a V60 Dripper or Chemex to get a truly exceptional cup of coffee.
