Our own levelling tamper for the deep baskets of the Robot - Manual Espresso Maker. The levelling tamper features a precision cast and then machined 304 stainless steel base with a tapered edge to prevent the vacuum effect when removing the tamper. The black section is from food grade POM material and centres the tamper in the basket, thereby ensuring the tamp is nice and level. The top section is CNC machined aluminium and the whole assembly is held together by a custom made 304 stainless steel stud.
Please note the POM section is not from a mold but rather each one is individually CNC milled from a bar stock and as such you may see milling marks.
The tamper goes down inside the filter basket, all the way down. It does not rest on the top of the basket as on a conventional basket.
The regular tamper base does not works. It would cause the coffee to be sucked back up during tamping. The black section is what keeps the tamper upright in the basket. The leaf pattern again is so allow air in so as not to suck the coffee back up.
The original tamper is good enough because we do not need to go crazy on tamping with the Cafelat Robot, a firm fingertip tamp is all that is required. Levers Machine are forgiving of tamping. But some of people find it is easier and do not need to fiddle around a bit to level the espresso puck with levelling tamper.
