Care instructions

Your Wiedemann Precision Tamper is made of high-quality materials. The base is made of stainless steel, the handle of wood or aluminium. Wood is a natural material and changes optically with time and use. We call it character! Protect your Precision Tamper from water and simply clean it with a wet kitchen towel. Never put it in the dishwasher. The same applies to the tamper with aluminium handle.

What size do I need?

Options “58,0mm, 58,5mm” fit for:
If you own a machine model from the following manufacturers and use their supplied 58mm filter baskets, our Precision Tamper 58 fits perfectly:

Bezzera, BFC, Brasilia, Carimali, Conti, ECM, Elektra, Faema, Fiorenzato, Gaggia, Grimac, IIsomac, IZZO, La Cimbali, La Marzocco, Nuova Simonelli, Quickmill, Rancilio, Rocket Espresso Milano, Vibiemme, Wega

What is the difference between option “58.0mm” and option “58.5mm”?
This specifies the lower diameter of the tamper plate. Both fit into 58mm filter baskets. Which of the two options is used is, like so many things in life, a matter of taste. If the tamper is used by different people and it is sometimes better to go faster, we recommend the 58.0mm tamper. If the preparation is celebrated and the ideal result is particularly in the foreground, we recommend the 58.5mm tamper. Using this diameter, the coffee powder in your filter basket is compressed a little further towards the edge and the risk of small channels (so-called channeling) forming in the coffee puck due to the brewing pressure is minimised.

Option “41mm” fits for:
The Precision Funnel 41 was developed especially for the Precision Tamper 41 and can only be used with it. Together they perfect your espresso preparation with the LM 7g Strada filter basket. The La Marzocco LM 7g Strada is required for use.

How do I know if I have a 58mm filter basket?
The 58mm is the inside diameter of the filter basket. Just take your portafilter out of the brewing group and measure it as shown in the picture. Important: If the inside diameter is just under 59mm, you speak of a 58mm filter basket. The sizes “58,0mm and 58,5mm” fit these filter baskets.

Frequent questions:

Protect your Precision Tamper from water. A few drops do not bother the repeatedly treated wood, but should be avoided. The Precision Tamper with aluminium handle may come into contact with water, but must never be put in the dishwasher.

Matching the Precision Tamper 58 (diameter 58.0, or 58.5), the Precision Funnel 58 is the ideal complement for your espresso preparation. The precision Tamper 58 and the Precision Funnel 58 are made for each other.
