    Name the new Pullman Tamper!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    As some of you are aware Im planning to release a new tamper fairly soon. Its taken quite some work but were close enough now to start thinking about names. While I have a few ideas Id be keen to hear any suggestions from imaginative CSers!

    To put this product in context, it will be a mid-range product pitched at the same part of the market as the Deluxe but is a simpler design than the Barista, which will make it cheaper in price. The Barista will of course remain a superior product, but this new product will provide an option for those who still want a decent tamper but dont need / want / have the spare funds for one thats the top of the range.

    The fine design details are still being nutted out so I cant show you what its going to look like just yet sorry, but to give a bit of direction for your creative juices the base will be stainless steel and the handles will come in a choice of wood or black.

    Whats in it for you? A free tamper when it comes out! :) If youre the first to suggest the name we choose then well be happy to send you the tamper you named with our compliments!

    Thinking caps on snobs and lets hear what youve got!

    Greg

    Bariluxe? That sounds in the middle of the current range.


    Now Ive typed that, I think it sounds stupid. Thinking cap back on.

    How about: Pullman Comfort Tamper

    Oooh, Pullman Poise :)

    Pullman Premier

    I quite like the sound of Pullman Pro, its short, snappy and quite catchy.

    Pullman Basix

    Would be good to pay for functionality without the bling factor ...... I dont need a fancy handle, machined metal is fine, its the base thats important to me..... I hate sending money off-shore and would preffer to buy local :-)

    I must admit, Essential sounds good. It doesnt in any way make it seem that its competing with the top of the line offering, however fittingly is still an essential tool.

    Pullman Black Mamba

    like the idea of something that starts with "C" because it is between B "Barista" and D "Deluxe"

    From what I know about the Pullman Tampers, they are 100% Australian and proud of it. I think to give the name an Italian-base would be to go against the marketing of the product.

    Im not suggesting calling it the Pullman Crocodile Dundee, but maybe something clever and Aussie (:

    with the ad:

    two baristas going at each other:

    "Thats not a tamper...THATS a tamper..."

    complete with whipping the tamper from behind the back...cue 2nd barista running off scared... :D

    Im not 100% clear if the new tamper sits between the deluxe and the barista. If this is the case it is difficult to go above deluxe while still aiming at value. Anyway here are a few:

    Pullman Opulence
    Pullman Indulgence
    Pullman Extravagance
    Pullman Treat
    Pullman Bespoke
    Pullman Superior

    The Italians who immigrated to Australia have done us proud. They had a massive part in introducing good coffee to OZ. Look at all of the top machines-Italian. I dont think Pullman tampers could go wrong introducing a small complement to our Italian friends who introduced us to espresso. ;D

    Well given theres already the Pullman Barista tamper Im not sure this suggestion has much weight, but anyway:

    Pullman Caprice
    Pullman Kingswood
    Pullman Falcon
    Pullman Elfin
    Pullman Special
    Pullman HR (my dad has two).

    and

    Pullman Premier

    EDIT: Tashie already called the "Premier" and I have to say I like the sound of it!

    What about the "Craftsman".

    References both the maker of the tamper and the person who wants to use such a tool to produce high quality coffee.

    Re: Name the new Pullman Tamper!

    Pullman - "Not quite as good as the Barista but like an updated Deluxe an stuff"

    Now for something a little more serious.....
    Im sure it will be hard to even come up with a short list greg. Here is a few of the ones I liked just in case it helps
    Connoisseur
    Synergy
    Tru fit or true tamp
    The idea of "pro" I like, but you dont want it sounding better that the Barista range so maybe "Home pro" or something like that.

    Good luck with the short list.

    Now that all the "serious" entries are over how about the Pullman "Tampa" Tamper, the kids will go overboard for it.
