Prima Tamp - Adjustable Angle Espresso Tamper
Our favorite tamper is on tour! View the full schedule to see if the Prima Tamp is coming to a city near you.
The Prima Tamp is our answer to the challenges of everyday espresso prep: fatigue and form. Proper tamping technique allows the barista to compress coffee evenly and comfortably over and over again, but this is tough to achieve with an ordinary tamper. A handle that sits perpendicular to the base either forces one's wrist and arm off center or requires a specific posture that’s just unnatural. With a tilted handle, a barista can easily take a position that encourages improved technique. But how can this tilt possibly accommodate everyone?
We're thrilled to introduce the first adjustable-angle tamper. The Prima Tamp is designed to make proper form comfortable and reduce tamping-related wrist strain so that you can effectively and consistently prepare delicious espresso. Being adjustable, any barista of any build can use it at any bar.
The beauty of the Prima Tamp is in its simplicity. Turning the handle counter-clockwise unlocks the mechanism so that you can tilt it to the angle that's right for you. A clockwise turn tightens the handle again so that it's ready to go. We made it wonderfully easy to use — and it looks sharp too.
