Anyone looking to sell theirs or know where I can get one of these beautiful looking tampers?

Iirc, that gun grip side engraving is a pretty easily-added option for their tamps. So even if Espresso Parts is sold out, you should still be able to order a custom EP5 (or Compressore) wood-handle tamper with the gun grip engraving (which is the cool part of this tamp anyway, imo), and maybe your company logo or an initial on top instead.

Not exactly the same thing, but may be a nice alternative.


Thanks Brady. Indeed the gun grip is the cool part =)

Their web store is great, but it is always worth the time to call and talk to them. They sometimes have cool stuff kicking around that isn't on the site. Good luck and post back once you get something?

I'm waiting for a Torr tamper that I just recently purchased to arrive.  I'm looking to get one more tamper.  I definitely will be calling EP to see if there is anything cool lying around or worth waiting for. 

Hit up Reg Barber. He does custom stuff all the time. You might not be able to customize that off the website, but shoot them an email and see what they can do. I love their incredibly precise base sizes. I have a 58.4mm tamp for my VST baskets, and it's perfect.

cedric,

Since you iquiring about the EP tamp and not a Reg ;-) let me suggest that you contact me

terryz@espressoparts.com and I will get you set up. It's a shame, but we only work within exact measurements of 57 and 58mm as we are strong believers that .4 mm or .2 or whatever makes little or no difference in a commercial environment, but also agree that everyone has an opinion, this just happens to be ours.

Just got my tamps and can't wait to play with them.  Torr tamp is beautiful and love the black titanium look. La Marzocco tamp is gorgeous and feels great in the hands.  Custom tamp looks better than I expected.

I notice the one in the middle has a pattern from one of your latte art photos. Pretty cool.

The LM tamper is awesome. 

I'd definitely oil those babies up to keep 'em looking new, especially if you're gonna use them for your work environment.
