Hello! I am new to this forum, so I apologize if this question has been asked previously.

I have a Brasilia Portofino that I have been blessed with 2nd hand. In my quest to learn the best way to make the best coffee I have been taught the proper technique for tamping and find that the tamper I have is painful (it's a cheapy) to use with the new way I grip it. Where should I look to find a better tamper, and how do I determine what size I need?

Thanks,

Natalie

You cant go wrong with one from Reg Barber, jut do a google search on his name and tampers and you should hit his site. There are different handle shapes and sizes so you should find it easy to find a good one. but you'll need to measure the inside of you PF, probably a good idea to use a vernier gauge to get a good accurate reading.

Thank you for your help Quink!

Not to sound stupid, but here goes...what exactly is a vernier gauge and where would I find one of those? :oops:

I have been pinging on the North America distributor about this item and here are the responses:

2nd email

Hello,

We've been told from the Tobira tamper company in Japan that they'd like to set up a new price for the north American customers, and we haven't heard the price yet. So we can't tell the price and the shipping fee for now. As soon as we know, we'll contact you immediately.

Regards,
