When it comes to the perfect espresso, every detail matters. That's why we're so passionate about using oak to create coffee tampers. Oak, with its natural beauty and durability, brings a unique touch to the coffee-making experience. It not only feels incredible in your hand but also adds a touch of elegance to the ritual of tamping.
Oak is an incredibly strong and noble North American hardwood. Oak's fine grain and density create a tamper that feels impeccable in the hand, precise, and beautiful. It also pairs nicely with the Niche grinder, whose accents are also in Oak.
All our wood handles are artisan-crafted by Reg himself, and finished by hand using Reg's proprietary mixture of food-safe natural finishes. They start out a bit glossy but develop a soft, satin patina with use.
Please note that this listing is for a handle only. Handles and bases must be specified individually to fashion a complete tamper. We'll assemble it for you before shipping.
This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
