This is my 58mm espresso tamper of choice!
I stopped drinking coffee years ago. I drank mostly Barry's Gold Blend tea. Over the course of this summer I have gone on a serious fitness kick, lost 20lbs, gained a ton of muscle, and STOPPED DRINKING TEA (first thing, I still drink it later.)
Espresso is back, baby!
It was amazing how quickly, like with the first double shot, I regained my skill for tamping the grounds. Years ago I was a mess, failing to level the tamped grounds correctly, or over tamping them so the h2o couldn't pass through.
This tamper has a skull on it. Get the metal, not the wood, because wood doesn't deal in the dish washer very well. I keep an alternate 58/51 tamper for when this one needs cleaning. It came with an earlier machine.
No longer easing myself into my day, I start it with a giant shock of espresso.
I still love Barry's.
