The Pullman Barista Tamper Checkerboard is the best choice for the professional barista or the home barista searching for the ultimate coffee tamper. Perfectly balanced it is a great feel in the hand, and with the rubber base cone, ergonomic too!

Checkerboard is the striking trademark of Pullman handle, made by alternately laminating Jarrah and Maple pieces, and then turning the resultant blank.
The result is a strong, functional but very distinctive handle you're unlikely to miss!

The hardwood handles are available in a number of different species and provide a very warm, natural surface to touch. They are very popular and provide a great contrast with stainless steel machines and work surfaces. Clean with care.


58.4mm is a popular size for fitting with VST baskets and most e61 machines, but if you're unsure of the exact size you need, please contact us before ordering. We'll ensure that your tamper will fit in your baskets! If you purchase any basket(s) along with a tamper in the same order, we'll guarantee it has a great fit before we send it out to you.

This tamper can be ordered with a flat base or a convex base - please specify your preference when ordering. Unless you have a preference for flat, we recommend convex. 

Pullman BigStep Base

The Pullman BigStep Tamper Base maximises the tamper coverage of your coffee puck, for the best possible extraction from your precision filter baskets. Measuring in at 58.55mm, this precisely designed tamper base features a 'step' design, allowing you to tamp right to the edge without producing a vacuum when withdrawing the tamper, leaving your coffee puck firmly in place, and tamped right to the edge! No more channelling through the sides of your coffee puck.

Designed to be used with ridgeless precision baskets such as the VST, IMS, or Pullman's own Filtration range, the BigStep enables you to hit higher extraction levels for better tasting espresso!


  • 3 height adjustable spacers (2,5,8mm) for Barista comfort, support and ergonomics. 
  • TrueTamp rings to assist in achieving a level tamp
  • A Lifetime warranty
  • Flat or convex base options
