  • Time to show off your tampers!

    Hello there,

    On the discussion of tampers, Ive noted that most people seem to have several tampers, or in some cases bits and pieces of tampers lying around.

    I thought itd be interesting to post pictures (I know theres a thread on cups around)!

    So, cmon peeps, time to show off those tampers. Lets see whos got what!

    This was my old tamper
    A Pullman Deluxe Tamper flat base with fitted La Marzocco Ridged Double Basket.

    This little beauty now lives with another CSer


    I now own a Pullman Barista, a convex base with fitted synesso basket

        My 2 taken in May.

        Tamper #213 on left - #1803 on right.
        I have since acquired a new handle for #213 as I found I was not using it due to a preference for the feel of the newer style.

        I suppose I should really take an updated picture

          I didnt get the box with mine as it came in the same box as my Hottop

          Im gonna get another soon....LOOOOVE the look of the grape color  8-)

          OH! and its sitting next to my standard issue Dalla Corte tamper. Which got sun damaged a couple of months ago lol. I only use it to tamp my tripple basket though as my Pullman wont fit it.

            Ooooh nice, Im eyeing off a grape vs jarrah. Grape is shiny!
            Greg do you have a wooden stand on top of your machine?

            Interesting there fatboy, there are no rings on your 213? Is it a Pullman?

            Nice checkerboard CD.

            Charging battery so I can take pictures soon!

              Sort of--its a mat made from saté sticks and nylon string--like matchstick blinds, but sturdy and easily cleaned. It keeps the cups, etc. from marking the stainless and lets the heat through, unlike a towel.

                Yep its one of ours. The rings werent on the original tampers, they came after about... maybe 18 months or so? Not certain, Luca could probably confirm as it was in response to feedback from him and Greg Kaan. Actually the chamfer I think was Gregs idea which is there on #213, the rings must have been Lucas, maybe that idea came a bit later...

                      WOW, insane *green with envy*

                      That grit blasted malabar looks quite nice actually. And the Cocobolo looks stunning.

                      I am officially sold on the grape!

                          tashie,

                          As Greg has answered, yes they are both Pullman tampers.
                          #213 was purchased in August 2004 and #1803 in Feb 2008.
                          As I mentioned, the handle design has also evolved in the years between and as much as I love my Tiger Stripe handle on #213, it has now been replaced by a redgum one in the same style as #1803.

                          We may see it in 30 years on Antiques Roadshow..
                          "Its been in my family for 35 years. The handle has been changed twice and the base has been changed once, but its all original!"

                          Brett.

                            Here are two of mine:

                            # 935 - Jarrah Deluxe which is engraved and was fitted to a LM double basket that Hazel picked up from Coffee Parts for me just over 3 years ago now.

                            # 2066 Checkerboard Deluxe bought from Dennis at cuppacoffee which was fitted to a Synesso double basket.

                            I also have a SS Professional Barista Tamper from Coffee Parts that I won in a CS competition and a Bumber Rubber Ball tamper that was given to me by Di Bartoli for helping at Aromafest.

                              Unfortunately in the metal it doesnt look quite as shiny as that; theyre even more matte than the matte finish ones in that other poll thread. So they end up looking quite dull even though they feel really nice and tactile.

                              Anyway back on subject...!
