It’s important for your baristas (or yourself) to have decent, quality equipment. We supply a range of tampers, tamping mats, milk frothing jugs and more to equip you with the tools necessary for you to produce perfect coffees.
Why is it important to have quality equipment? Find out below.
The art of Tamping
Espresso tamping is an art essential to correct espresso preparation. The goal is to create an even firm coffee pellet in which the hot water from the espresso machine will penetrate evenly. Uneven or incorrect tamping will cause inconsistencies and poor tasting coffee. Espresso tampers should be made of aluminium or similar light metal, and as they are an integral part of EVERY espresso based drink, it’s worth investing in a good quality tamper that will last a long time. At Beanmachines we have a variety of tampers to suit a wide range of tastes and budgets.
Milk Frothing Jugs (foaming jugs)
After making the perfect espresso the second most important thing in coffee preparation is the frothing of milk (sometimes referred to as foaming). As always it’s important to have the right tools so a quality stainless steel milk frothing jug is an essential piece of kit. We have a range of stainless steel milk frothing jugs in a range of styles and sizes to suit your preference.
