  • Tampers - Flat vs Convex

    Hi all,

    Long time member, first time poster.

    About to drop some $$$ on a new machine with an E61 grouphead and will need a new tamper.

    Just wondering what difference the base of the tamper makes, being flat or convex? Benefits/drawbacks of each?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Shippo.

    Hi Shippo & welcome. This question gets revived from time to time, search function should unearth a treasure trove of confusion :-). At the end of it any benefit, imagined or factual is minimal. I feel that the fit of the tamper & the operator's consistency is more important.

    PS. I should mention I have one of each and I swap between the two and have no noticeable difference.

        Add ripple base into the equation, just to confuse you more
