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.

Details:

  • Materials: Aluminum and 304 Stainless Steel.
  • Weight: 1.116 lbs / 506 grams (for the 58mm)
  • Black handle with a fleur-de-lis on the top and primacoffee.com etched into base.
  • Handle and base are easily detachable.
  • Handy carrying case included with tamper.
  • Available with either a flat or convex base (select from options above)
  • Available in the following sizes (choose your size from options above): 49mm, 51mm, 53mm, 54mm, 56mm, 57mm, 58mm, and 58.35mm.

Prima 53mm Espresso Tamper

Replaced tamper that came with Starbucks Barista espresso machine with the 53mm Prima tamper. Prima tamper is heavy and works perfectly... exactly what I was looking for. My old Starbucks machine makes better espresso with this new one. Shipment was very fast from Prima-coffee. I'm one satisfied customer!

Great tamper

While another review already said this, let me open with the fact that 53mm works *perfectly* for the Breville Barrista express. Had I known this ahead of time, it would have saved the $7 to return the 54mm. This tamper is well made, weighted and balanced perfectly, and the handle is broad enough to make it easy to achieve the right tamping pressure. It’s also elegantly stylish. We love it!!!

Great look, excellent quality, feels great

I bought two tampers, one flat and another convex. They feel great and look great as well. Given the quality and high end look, the price is is inexpensive.

Where have you been all these years

I have been making espresso for 25 year and have had great tips from my spouse's family in Italy. Never have I enjoyed making espresso, nor has it been so consistent and creamy, as with my new Prima tamper. I should have done this years ago rather than watch baristas use them.

Great tamper - good heft and quality construction

I bought this for my husband for Christmas to replace the tamper that came with our Francis Francis X5. He is very happy with it. It's quality made and a good weight.

Happy wife and great coffee

Thanks for the advice on exactly which tamper was right for the wife's machine. For a change I gave her a gift that brought a big smile and even much improved coffee for me. It's a win win.

Beautiful tamper!

I have been searching for a tamper for a very long time. I was very concerned about spending a lot of money for i.e. a Reg Barber, and didn't want to go for a cheap one. The Prima tamper was perfect! It's a beautiful tamper for a fairly decent price. Has a great weight and feel. It's a perfect height for tamping. Fits very comfortably in our hands. Have had perfectly level pucks!

A thing of beauty…and a joy to hold

Prima espresso tamper. Beautifully made. Nice weight. Lovely feel. Adds that all important little extra touch to the ritual of making a great espresso. Curved base a revelation. (Quick word to the wise to any other Breville Infuser users trying to up their game. Breville cites 54mm tamper / basket. 54mm Prima tamper barely fits the Breville's steeply tapered basket sides - so suggest the more-standard 53mm Prima base would be a much better fit.)

I love this tamper

This tamper was excellent for the price. Most heavy tampers are expensive and I believe this was the only one that was under $50. What caught my attention was the customer service reps. I ordered the wrong size base so when I contacted them to address the issue, they were super nice and willing to help and exchange. I never heard of this company until now. Highly recommended, really!

Very Nice

Making espresso is a daily ritual in our home. Glad to finally have a good tamper because it does make a difference. I can't say that this one is better or worse than the others I looked at but I love the Fleur de Lys insignia and thus chose this one. I use a Unic, measured closely and went with the 57mm convex. It's a good fit. Your chart might recommend 56mm?

GREAT TAMPER

It's a really nice tamper with a good amount of weight on it. Overall, it's a great buy if you are looking for a tamper for your vst/strada basket.

very elegant.

I am a coffee enthusiast and this is my first piece of equipment, other than my Capresso coffee machine which is over 4 years old, and I'm pretty excited about it. It enhances the coffee making experience in addition to the taste.

Great Weight and grip

This good very good tamper but the reason that I chose 3 stars is that the material feels little bit cheep. The quality is not that good and it feels like something wrong with it. The weight of the tamper is very good and I like its grip. It maybe good for this price :). Sorry for my bad english
