why the convex shape of the bottom instead of flat? Which is better and why? Thanks so much
Kristen C It really is up to personal preference and experience. You can find more on the different types on tampers on our website here: http://www.wholelattelove.com/blog.cfm?blogact=detail&seeBlogID=6987 and let us know if you have any further questions about which tamper would be best for you!
Tracys ♦ Here is a video that will detail the differences and help you decide if the convex or flat tamper is best for you:http://www.wholelattelove.com/videos.cfm?playvidID=536
mjackson ♦ It seems to me people really like what they have. I do think each side has valid points. I do think both work well. I do know a great grinder is really the key to happiness. Good coffee doesn't hurt either.
What size tamper do I need for the Gaggia Espresso Pure?
mjackson ♦ Kevin,
You will need a 58 mm tamper. We have many to choose from.
How much does this tamper weigh?
Mike Russo ♦ Chris...Thanks you for your interest in the Convex 58mm Stainless Steel Tamper. This tamper weighs 8.5 ounces. Thanks.
