Perfect your tamp with this stylish 58mm Commercial Tamper. Made of durable polished stainless steel, these tampers feature a convex bottom and translucent accents in your choice of clear, blue or red.
Can anyone describe the advantages or differences of a convex tamper vs. flat? I use a flat tamper with my Gaggia classic and get good results. But there are many convex tampers out there, so there must be some advantage?
The difference between convex and flat tampers is really a user preference question. Some people say convex will give you a more even puck to prevent channeling but everyone has an opion on the matter and I see little difference between the two.
I ordered the convex tamper, so I'll find out soon which I prefer!
