Since the original bumper stand was launched in 2006, tamping stands have grown more and more popular. Once they were seen as quirky training tools to help promote level tamping with single spouts or bottomless portafilters, but now they are gaining acceptance in full-time use in cafes and bars around the world.
Our new Tamping Stand was designed by Paul Pratt to be as completely different as anything else on the market. Paul also designed the Bumper tamping stand which changed the way people tamp all over the world. This stand is made from solid 304 stainless steel, and is 50% extra heavier than the previous Cafelat Tamping Stand. It weights around 600g or 1lb5oz! The top and bottom feature durable rubber pads.
You can use this with either a spouted or naked portafilter to keep your work surface clean and scratch free. It also keeps the spouts free of coffee grounds so they do not end up in the cup. The exterior has been expertly finished by us in-house with a wonderful mirror finish. Ensure that the only thing your coffee touches after is leaves the portafilter are the spouts!
