Pullman® – Acetal Tamper [Forest Green]
Pullman Tampers represent a premium piece of quality engineering expertise. Unlike many mass produced coffee tampers, Pullman Tampers are an individual work of art, measured, weighed and stamped with its own serial number – uniquely yours. This may well be the last tamper you ever need to buy.
The Pullman Barista tamper was primarily designed for use with an anodized aluminium handle and in this combination will provide a balanced tamper. While aluminium doesn’t feel as warm to touch as wood or plastic, it’s the most resilient of the three materials and with a wide choice of colours it has the widest and arguably the most striking aesthetic spectrum. The strength and balance of this handle would make it an ideal choice for a commercial outfit or for a home barista looking for a tamper with a contemporary look.
Aluminium is an inherently soft metal, however the ‘anodising’ process colours and hardens the surface, making it more resistant to denting and chipping. This is different to ‘powder-coating’ which simply applies a layer of colour (like paint) over the top of the metal that chips off quite easily. The Barista tamper’s impervious materials mean it can be easily washed or wiped to get it clean in a flash.
Pullman Coffee Tampers are designed to enhance performance, endurance and aesthetic appeal; from the ergonomic handle, the dimensions and angles on the base, and the TrueTamp rings all assist in getting an even tamp.

Acetal plastic or anodized aluminium handles can be washed or wiped as required, however do not clean in dishwashers or use any harsh or caustic chemical cleaners (particularly bleach or caustic soda). Always dry the tamper immediately after cleaning. Wood or leather handles should be kept dry and only wiped clean with a slightly damp cloth. Wooden handles are pre-treated with Danish oil and will absorb skin oils during normal use, so shouldn’t need re-oiling. Leather-wrapped handles may be treated periodically with a leather conditioner.
The base can be unscrewed for cleaning if desired, however a wipe with a damp cloth should be all it takes to remove any dried coffee residue or particles.
