The Pullman Barista tamper has qualities that will appeal to commercial operators, however one of the reasons for the success of the Deluxe tamper has been the availability of quality hardwood handles. Hardwood Barista handles are similar in weight to the Acetal handle, which mean they make for a bottom-heavy tamper as sometimes preferred in a domestic situation, and the luxurious woods are sure to be a hit in any home barista kit! They are also suitable for commercial use, however the homogeneous nature of acetal and aluminium lend themselves better to this application than timber.
Checkerboard is a strikingly trademark Pullman handle, made by alternately laminating Jarrah and Australian Oak pieces, and then turning the resultant blank. The result is a strong, functional but very distinctive handle you're unlikely to miss!
Pullman handles are all finished with a resin-loaded Danish Oil rather than a varnish. Varnish tends to chip and crack over time, whereas an oiled finish retains the natural feel of the wood and provides a surface that will go the distance. To better show off the checkerboard pattern, checkerboard handles NO LONGER have an acetal insert in the top of the handle.
- Tamper handles and tamper bases are sold separately. While they can be purchased separately if necessary, you require both a base and a handle for a complete tamper.
- Bases and handles from the Nexus and Barista range are not interchangeable. If you are purchasing a Barista handle you must also purchase a Barista base for a complete Barista tamper. See the range of Barista bases available for purchase.
- The Barista tamper is ONLY AVAILABLE IN SIZES BETWEEN 57mm and 58.8mm. If your filter basket is smaller than this you will need to purchase a Deluxe tamper
- As wood is a naturally grown product with each handle being unique, natural and unavoidable differences in colour, texture and shape may exist between the photos on our website and the product you received. You should contact us if you have a specific requirement regarding your handle prior to ordering.
