Since 1967, Metallurgica Motta has been producing stainless steel barista tools with high quality Italian design.
The Motta 58.4 mm Competition Tamper allows both home and professional baristas to extract more espresso with greater consistency.
Despite the name, both home baristas and the professional benefit from a wider tamping diameter. With the 58.4 mm base, the Motta Competition Tamper helps you get the most out of every cup by:
compressing a wider surface of coffee, reducing channeling caused by ‘missed’ coffee grounds, and limiting the impact ‘puck preparation’ can have on extraction.
For best results, pair the Motta Competition Tamper with the Motta Coffee Levelling Tool.
Note: we recommend measuring the diameter of your portafilter basket to check compatibility (see specifications).
Wider diameter: With a tighter manufacturing tolerance and additional .4 mm width, the Motta Competition Tamper compresses a greater surface area of the puck, significantly reducing side wall channeling, without creating a vacuum seal when removing the tamper from the portafilter basket.
Warm, tactile Design: with the grain of the stained ash wood handle, contrasted by the weight of the tapered stainless steel base, this Italian made Competition Tamper makes proper technique intuitive and engaging.
