Compressore Espresso Tamp - Walnut Wood
Espresso Parts' Walnut Wood Compressore Espresso Tamp.
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.
Compressore's smooth and elegant design offers its barista non-stop comfort and usability even during the long shifts. Since its inception, this espresso tamp has quietly gained popularity with many of the industry's top barista. The tamper piston is professionally machine milled stainless steel, and is available in your choice of a flat or convex tamp piston in the following stock sizes: 58mm and 57mm.
All wood handle types come from producers that are FSC certified which ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
The Compressore handle is available in a variety of anodized colors as well as walnut wood and kino wood.
This being my first tamper, as well as my first espresso machine, I wasn't sure what to look for so I went with walnut. This was a good decision. It is sturdy, rugged, and handles very well. It's been machined and sanded, and it just feels like it'll last forever.
