Espresso Tamping is an art that is often neglected in espresso preparation.
The goal is to create a pellet of coffee through which the hot water from the espresso machine will penetrate evenly.
Since the water from the espresso machine is under pressure, the espresso pellet must be hard and evenly tamped.
The water only knows how to go from a region of high pressure to a region of low pressure.
Therefore it is important to prevent paths of least resistance in the coffee pellet and force the water to evenly permeate and extract the coffee.
Used either in conjunction with a SMKF tampresso (flat tamper) or with any other 58mm tamper,
SMKF distressso tool helps baristas of all levels in pursuit of consistent espresso perfection.
This height is adjustable, suit different baskets, so we wish from our products, you can enjoy your coffee time.

The downside in my view is that you will tamp the grounds to a preset depth (based on how you’ve set the height adjustment). Using a heavier or lighter dose then your last shot? You’ve got to change the height, or else your tamp will differ as well. Yes, it can be helpful to have another variable to control, but you can’t adjust the dose without also adjusting the tamp, and that makes it tricky to experiment with the dose.
Also, by warned that if you like to use a 22g basket (such as VST or IMS) and you dose < 20g, the tamp is simply too short. You will max out the height, and you still won’t be able to get a tight tamp. The solution is to remove the lower collar.
