Coffee Tampers




I have vowed not to take a photo of the coffee I drank today. However, I will show you these coffee tampers I've just made. The larger one is for a "58mm" basket on the ol' Faema family that we're using at home. The wood is Huon Pine I reckon, a very beautiful Tasmanian wood that is endangered now I think ( this is old stock fyi). The smaller one is steel- I abbreviated one of my silversmithing stakes! It is very heavy- I use it for a little Bialetti stove-top caffettiere that we use when camping or when the Faema is busted (often). I definitely wouldn't take this tamper on a camping trip unless it had some serious drillium...
