Here at Caffe Mela all the baristas are going to get their very own custom tamper. I've been looking all over online for some really sweet creative tampers but I just can't find anything much cooler than colored tamps. Please help me and my fellow baristas out!

Brandi,

Rad tampers are just a click away @ Espressoparts.com. Dave W who does allot of the custom tamper work has ties to Wenatchee as well, so it's a natural! If you don't see what your looking for ask Dave for some images of other work we have done. We just finished a tamp that has a bronze medallion in the top of and a sterling silver bezel with a 1/2 carat diamond and a laser engraved base.... I would say Rad.

...will be a great start (although, just a touch dated) about a whole slew of tamps and which do what really well, and which are difficult how.
These are experienced barista getting their hands on a dozen or more different tamps and comparing them against one another, and using their particular likes and dislikes as scale.
Find a barista that is physically and philosophically like you, and see what they like...
Our new tamper came in yesterday!! So stoked and man oh man, beats the crap out of the stupid tamper that was attached to the grinder. To be honest, I don't know how we limped along with that thing for 6 months!

I know a guy who will custom turn you a handle for 30-50 bucks. you can make it whatever shape you want and with whatever kind of wood or colors or inlays or whatever. He made me one that is awesome. you just gotta buy the base. send me a message if your interested and I can send you a pic of the one he made me and get you his contact info
Reg Barber. 'nough said.
heres that tamp I just had made. It might not be as shiny as some, but I asked for the natural wood colors cause I thought they were sweet.
