Brand MG Coffee Tools
The Smart-Tamp is a coffee tamper with a built in digital force scale that shows you how hard you are compacting the coffee in the portafilter in real-time, quickly and accurately. The tamper handle is ergonomic and comfortable in the hand. From the outside it looks and feels like a conventional coffee tamper but contains quite unconventional internals giving the tamper unprecedented utility.
Part of the innovation in the tamper lies within the load cell. Small, accurate load cells are prohibitively expensive and this drove MG Coffee Tools engineers to design a custom one that is small enough to fit inside a typical size tamper without sacrificing the tamper’s ergonomics and function. The tamper comes powder coated in three striking colors that are tough and made to last. The handle can be removed and swapped with one of a different color. The base is made from stainless steel and is available in both flat and curved form in three sizes: 53mm, 58mm and 58.4mm. The digital display comes in two unit options, a kilogram screen that displays from 5 to 20 kg in 1 kg increments and a pounds screen that displays from 12 to 42 lbs in 2 lbs increments.
Controlling the variables that govern a good shot of espresso is key to being able to improve and reliably repeat your extractions. The Smart-Tamp offers you unmatched control over your tamp so you never have to question your tamp again.
Batteries included. Battery life is 6 to 7 months in standby mode.
