Negative Product Points


Detailed Commentary

Wow, I am in Love, this thing is incredible. It looks awesome, well balanced, decent weight, feels great in the hand, and very comfortable to use.

This is the last tamper I will ever buy for sure, the great part is that if I upgrade to a machine or portafilter basket of a different size, I can just buy a base rather than a whole new tamper.

The aluminum offers great balance rather than being bottom heavy like other tampers with a stainless steel base

Not only is this thing a pleasure to use, It works Great and looks like a jewel on your countertop, the pictures dont do any justice

By the way if you are wondering, I am a flat tamper fan rather than convex, if you are concerned about side channeling I rather have a custom base sized to my basket for free from reg than go with a convex unit, Thats just my opinion

Buying Experience

Whole Latte Love is an awesome business to deal with, I actually prefer calling them rather than communicate through email, since they are such a pleasure to deal with
