Reg Barber Tamper Bases


In stock. Ships next business day

These available base shapes were all carefully designed to allow baristas an option. All of these bases are compatible with the screw-on Reg Barber handles we carry, and were crafted with care to deliver the perfect tamp every time.

This is the standard shape for most tampers. It creates an even surface. It is best used for espresso machines where the shower (where the water comes out) is also flat in shape.

Features a flat surface in the centre with sloped sides (Euro Curve around the edges). It creates a wall that seals in the grinds, and prevents water from going around the puck. This shape can help the coffee grinds get infused by the water more for a richer taste. 

This is essentially the C-Flat with ripples that create a more textured finish. This helps to keep the water more evenly distributed for consistency with the coffee to water contact. 
The C-Ripple was used by the World barista Champion of 2009.

American Curve:
The American Curve has the slightest rounded curve. Like the Euro Curve, it encourages water to the center of the puck and away from the edges, giving a more infused flavour. 

Lazy V:

For those who need a big base for a VST basket! Reg Barber's big base won't create suction and won't stick in your porta filter.

All RB stainless steel is made in the USA using standard 304 food grade steel. Stainless steel resists rust and corrosion and is a heavier metal. It is the recommended base material at RB.


We, at Green Beanery, recommend the stainless steel bases for practicality, as they are the most resistant to rust and scratches (meaning easy, low maintenance). The Brass finish is also highly resistant to weathering but will require some work to maintain its lustrous and classy finish. The Copper base is recommended for those with a more rustic look to match with, but we do warn that Copper is the most prone to tarnishing and will require maintenance on the user's part with regular cleaning and drying. Essentially, all three materials deliver the same high-quality tamp if used with good technique.
