Genuine ECM Tamping station
Does the jobBy: Colin on 9 October 2018I think there is a couple of design flaws with the ECM Tamping Station. The top rubber gasket sits on the inside corner which doesn't make contact with the portafilter in any way. I was expecting it to have some purpose in life. The image on the website indicates the upper rubber gasket is a tad lower on the inside which looks like it would protect the portaflter a bit more. (Not on the tamping station I have though). Also the 73mm hole in the middle is a tad too large where on a few occaisions my portafilter has managed to get stuck during a tamp. I can get around the "getting stuck" problem by making sure the portafliter is perfectly centred before tamping. (Note that I have all original ECM portaflters). Saying all this, the Tamping Station does provide a perfectly level portafilter for tamping and will sit there quite nicely without having to hang onto it. It also looks the part next to the ECM machine.
"Great tamper station for life"By: Jonathon on 2 August 2017This portable tamping station is made with solid polished aluminium that will give you decades of balanced tamping with your 58mm Portafilter. It has a rubber ring gasket on the bottom and top to prevent slipping.In comparison to using your kitchen bench for the tamp, the ECM station wont scratch your portafilter, as it has a deep inner frame that just fits. Designed for ECM but should fit most E61 Portafilter's.(excluding Sunbeam/Breville)If not sure? contact this seller.
