mjackson ♦ Dave,

it is an often discussed topic. There is allegiance to both for various reasons. I am not sure which way I lean or tamp. I have always liked a flat tamper. Here is a link to a good discussion on the comparison of the two. You may decide on one or the other I think it does not make a lot of difference.

I have a Racilio Silvia home espresso machine. Which size Reg Barber aluminum tamper should I buy? I use the double portafilter basket; there's no indication on the basket of its width in mm's. Also, I'm not sure if I should get the curved or flat tamper.
Thanks.

Zack Smith Lauren, Great choice with your Silvia. The portafiter on that machine is a 58 mm. Any 58 mm tamper would work. I would recommend a good flat tamper.
