Made my tamping routine quicker and easier, and my wife happier person!
Positive Product Points
Excellent quality, workmanship and finish.
Negative Product Points
Could be slightly shorter, and closer to La Marzocco OEM tamping stand length. IMO, the rubber bottom stand (that unnecessarily takes some extra real estate on your kitchen top) could be replaced by a different stand base that would allow use of 4 small rubber feet.
Happy with my purchase as I used to rest my single portafilter against the kitchen counter edge while tamping which was driving my wife nuts. The quality and finish is second to none.
Definitely one of must-have gadgets for serious home barista who is also into well designed and usable coffee preparation tools.
I bought it after I bought my Bumper Tamper and was 100% satisfied with all aspects of it. My neighbor owns a stand so I had a privilege of actually seing and using one before the purchase.
Note: There should be a new Tamping stand offered soon, slightly different in shape and design. Better to check with Paul directly for more details.
Paul was a pleasure to deal with. I liked the fact he makes his products per-order. Came in 3 days from Hong Kong, courier-parcel shipped.
