Why is the Mona Lisa worth countless millions of dollars while the paintings at your local op shop can be had for a couple of bucks? Why will someone be happy driving a "beige-on-wheels" Camry while yet another is happy to drop a mil plus on a Bugatti Veyron? Some of it is all about wanker bragging rights, another part of the equation is quality. attention to detail and that artisan factor and yet another part is all about that gut reactiuon that just tells you that you MUST have it... at any cost. Will a cheapy tamper tamp your coffee? .... Yup. Will a bespoke tamper measured to the fraction of a milimetre do the job a bit better?... Yup x 10!
