The walnut tamper is pure luxury. Designed and produced with the barista in mind. It is well balanced, has an ergonomic handle and is very comfortable for repetitive use. This base is different shape and grade of stainless steel to the other Cafelat tampers. Each wood handle is crafted by Cafelat director Paul Pratt in-house and is carefully sanded, oiled and buffed to a silky smooth finish, a process that takes several days. Before any tamper leaves the factory it undergoes strict quality control to ensure it has been manufactured to their very high specifications.
