    Big Step

    There's probably too many posts already about this awesome piece of coffee art. I had to get a Jarrah handle being from WA and having Jarrah trees growing on our property.

    Looks great doesn’t it!

    Always thought it would be good to get a Big Step one day.

    First coffee I pulled there was much less left on the shower screen. I also think the coffee tasted better but that might have been the "new toy" effect

    I was skeptical about having a tamper that fitted exactly the basket, not any more

    They're definitely one of the nicest tampers out there. Looks great with that Jarrah handle.

    You get great feedback while tamping due to their lighter weight and the "Step". The sharp square edge on the bottom of the tamper does a great job of tamping right out to the basket wall. Never regretted buying mine for even a moment (Cobalt Blue Anodised handle).

    Maybe some Wilcox Jarrah Knobs and Portafilter handles in the future to match the Big Step?
