Details Product Specs
Compressore is the Italian word for tamper and we couldn't think of a better way to pay homage to the birthplace of espresso than to give this handle design an Italian name.
Our Compressore espresso tamp handle is precision machine milled from solid aluminum. When attached to the heavier stainless steel base the lighter weight aluminum handle provides a proper mass ratio between the two which results in an exceptional feeling of balance. Our tamper pistons are professionally machine-milled stainless steel, and are available in your choice of a flat or convex tamp piston in the following stock sizes: 58mm and 57mm.
Walnut is a very beautiful wood. It is typically hard, dense, tight-grained, and polishes to a very smooth finish. The color ranges from creamy white in the sapwood to a dark chocolate color in the heartwood. NOTE: Wood grain will differ from handle to handle. Our Compressore handle has the heft and feel that many professional baristas are looking for.
We source our wood from FSC certified producers. This certification ensures that these products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits.
Also available in silky matte color finishes.
