  • When we see a tamper in a Barista’s hand we know the significance. It is the tool that a barista uses most often. The tamp translates the Barista’s skill of craft into the resulting shot. It is a tool of assumed simplicity with substantial purpose. The New Levy Tamp brings unparalleled consistency to your espresso production. Simply determine the ideal weight of ground coffee in your portafilter and spin the Levy’s center spacer to achieve the perfect tamp depth.

    The New Levy makes consistency and quality possible with every shot. Built in Saint Anthony Industries' workshop by hand, each one is a unique piece. Made from solid stainless steel with your choice of American hardwood inlay, the New Levy is built to last a lifetime.

    Note: For maximum surface coverage, we strongly recommend the 58.5mm base diameter for all 58mm portafilter baskets.

    • Adjustable Depth: 5.5mm-15.5mm
    • Base Diameter: 58.3mm
    • Handcrafted in the USA
    • Made from Stainless Steel and American Hardwood
    • A Beautiful Selection of American Hardwoods: Maple, Cherry, and Walnut
    • Precision engineered to +/- 0.002"

Quality craftsmanship

I received the New Levy Tamp for my birthday and I feel spoiled!
The pros of this product:
- well built; you can feel and see the quality (very heavy)
- beautiful tool with wood finish
- fits snugly in a 58 mm portafilter with no messy grinds on the side
- due to design, impossible to tamp on an angle
- makes a beautiful, clean puck
The cons of this product:
- the cost
- the uncertainty of whether it has improved the quality/consistency of my shots (the jury is out)
- the lack of markings to measure depth (I am looking at purchasing an upgrade option ($20) to deal w this)
For me, this tool has taken a lot of the stress out of tamping and seeing a beautiful clean puck is important to me. I am sure there are cheaper products on the market, but if you don't mind dropping $200 on an espresso accessory, I recommend this product. Plus, if this product is sold/recommended by Eight Ounce Coffee and Clive Coffee, it MUST be good.
