Experts agree that having a good espresso machine, coffee grinder, espresso tamper, and the right selection of coffee beans are paramount to achieving espresso that is brimming with flavor and aroma.

The Espro Tamper features a patent pending mechanism built into the handle that provides feedback in the form of a subtle click indicating that exactly thirty pounds of downward pressure has been achieved. At last, there is an espresso tamper that takes all of the guesswork of tamping espresso grounds. Now you can be expert after just a few tamps!

Thirty pounds of downward pressure is considered by espresso experts to be the optimum pressure applied to espresso grounds to achieve an even and level pressure, which in turn yields a consistent espresso time after time. It has been suggested that one should use a bathroom scale to get the feel of what thirty pounds of downward pressure feels like.

The revolutionary Espro Tamper is the only tamper currently in production that is spring loaded to measure the exact amount of tamping pressure needed for perfect espresso extraction. Excellent as a training tool or as a great addition to your espresso preparation toolbox, this innovative product takes the guesswork out of gauging the right amount of tamping pressure.

Each Espro Tamper is carefully crafted with a polished stainless steel base, anodized turned metal handle, heavy-duty steel spring components and attention to detail like no other. The manufacturer, Espro, Inc., has a great deal of knowledge about the manufacture of high quality, innovative, espresso brewing accessories. They set out to not only design a functional tool, but also one that would draw you in with its ease of use and revolutionary design. There is clearly nothing like the Espro Tamper in production today. Compare the Espro Tamper for price and convenience to other automatic tampers that cost hundreds more.
