Tesla Author Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper
The Tesla Author Smooth Briar Espresso Tamper has great aesthetics and function. The form of this tamp was inspired by the stout and spherical Author pipe shape. My favorite aspect is the grain patterns spread across the top. The rich bird’s eye on the side of the head seems to produce the flame grain like flashing electric arcs. That flame grain on the head reminded me of arcing electricity like that of Nikola Tesla and his Magnifying Transmitter or a plasma globe which uses the same principles Tesla discovered. The resemblance to Tesla’s work led me to name this tamper in honor of his fascinating inventions. At almost 2" wide and 2 5/8" tall not including the base, the Tesla Author will appeal to baristas who like a short, wide tamper. The shape fills the hand and the broad surface distributes pressure without causing discomfort. This tool is sure to serve well and attract a lot of attention, a little like the electrical experiments by its namesake.

One of the top coffee grinder manufacturers has just released one of the most versatile grinders to date. With the capability of grinding from French press to espresso, the Mahlkonig Pro M provides the grinding range that would normally require two separate grinders. The grinding range combined with features like the "hands free" operation and break functionality help make this grinder ideal for both low-medium volume commercial settings and home use.
$48.62Tampers are as diverse as the baristas who use them. Our new tamper meets the needs of almost any barista, whether professionally trained or newly beginning. With its durable aluminum handle and wide, smooth top, the tamper is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably into the palm unlike other overly rounded handles which can press a little too tightly into the hand of the barista, or flat topped handles which can become uncomfortable after extended use.
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.
