The Pullman Difference: Australian Made Barista Coffee TampersBarista Supplies
Pullman have created tools that assist baristas to control variables and improve consistency when preparing espresso with their flawless range. Products include the Nexus Tamper, Barista Tamper, Big Step Base, Chisel Distribution Tool and precision laser cut Filtration Baskets.
The Nexus Tamper
The Nexus tamper range is perfect if you are after a top-quality Australian made Pullman Tamper. The Nexus tampers are available with a range of handles from high-impact Acetal plastic to exquisite oiled hardwood. The Pullman Nexus tamper features a solid stainless steel base and TrueTamp rings around the base assist in achieving a level tamp.
Pullman have also recently released the Nexus Pro. The Nexus Pro tamper is manufactured with an extremely accurate 58.5mm base and features a razor-sharp edge. The base size improves the evenness of extraction allowing you to extract everything from your coffee. Alike the Big Step base, the angled side-wall, avoids any vacuuming which may happen with larger tamper bases.
The Barista Tamper
The Pullman Barista Tamper was designed with the professional barista in mind. All Pullman Barista Tamper parts are made in Australia from premium grade materials, so you can be assured of the highest quality results. The Barista series are ergonomically shaped and feature interchangeable spacers to adjust the height of the tamper to fit your hand perfectly. The precision-machined stainless steel tamper base features TrueTamp rings for a consistent and level tamp and an ergonomic synthetic rubber compression zone for maximum comfort.
The Big Step
The Big Step refers to the design of the larger diameter ‘stepped edge’ measuring in at 58.55mm (+/-0.02mm). This increases the surface area of extractable coffee to be covered, including the prevention of a pinched edge of coffee grind that can occur when using a incorrect base size. This base is made in Australia from an extremely high strength (min 43 Rockwell) 440C Grade Stainless steel. These work perfectly with ridgeless precision baskets (Such as, Pullman Filtration, VST, IMS and Strada, Synesso and some La Marzocco baskets).
