    Breville 800ES & Espro Tamper

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Has anyone got the combination of a Breville 800ES and Espro Tamper (or any other tamper besides the plastic spoon/tamper combo)

    The reason Im asking is that in the recent contest on CS I won a Espro Tamper and have the option of sized tampers, The 53mm tamper Flat base would be the closest. Does anyone have the 53mm espro tamper with this machine or similar mahine. I think the Sunbeam and Saeco portafilters are 53mm the same as the Breville.

    Can anyone confirm this before I make my decision on the size of tamper you use? The other sizes available are 58mm and 57mm which are definately too large.

    Now you could always choose the 58mm.

    Then use your bright shiny new 58mm tamper as an excuse to upgrade your machine.......

    All sounds logical to me ;) :) :)

    Your saying what Im thinking JavaB, but since the Breville was a Birthday Gift given to me only in January 2007 by my parents I think I had better hang onto it a little longer.

    If the 53mm tamper is no good then I will get the 58mm and just hang onto it when I do upgrade. *(saying this with full optimism that I will upgrade one day. and making sure it is a 58mm machine)

    The 58mm will make a nice decoration until the upgrade.

    Gday Goodies,

    Maybe you can have the best of both worlds ;D..... Select the 53mm tamper for use now and then get a 58mm base when you have actually upgraded ;).... Its all good,

    Mal.

    The 53mm wont fit the Breville. Now if only youd won a Pullman Id be able to make you one to fit! :( Go the 58mm and hang on to it, or sell it as a brand new one and use the money to get something else that fits.
