Really nice product, hefty and shiny.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the filter baskets for the DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker. It's too big.

I tried to measure the portafilter in my Saeco Via Venezia and landed on 53mm - turns out I was exactly correct.

This results in a perfect tamp nearly every time with the ideal area and weight. Up to you to get the pressure right of course, but the size is so perfect that there's almost a pressurized air-tight seal you can feel as you tamp, which is ideal. It's also beautifully made, seems to be machined out of a block of solid aluminum. It will, without a doubt, last several centuries without wearing down.

I got a second one for my father's older Starbucks "Barista" machine. He's modded it halfway to heaven with temperature gauges, pressure controls, and all sorts of crazy stuff, but was still using the wrong sized tamper - terry's tamper with the 2 ends, neither of which fit the portafilter! I had a sneaking suspicion it was also 53mm, and sure enough it fits perfectly.

So, I have personally confirmed it works on:

- Saeco Via Venezia
- Starbucks Barista

and it is of perfect quality, stylish, and functional. Highly recommended.

This fits the Saeco Aroma perfectly.

Its a nice piece, and performs very well. Comes in a little burlap sack for storage.

Bonus: using this with my pressurized portafilter results in a more solid espresso puck, which simplifies cleanup a little.

For the most part, this tamper is great; it's got a nice weight to it, doesn't scratch easily, and allows for quite easy tamping.

However, I would like to mention that the outer circular edge to the bottom part is a bit tapered, which means that the espresso grounds around the edge of the portafilter do not get tamped evenly with the rest of the grounds, which results in loose grounds around the edge of your puck. These loose grounds can be cleaned off relatively easily, but I have noted that water tends to flow around these unevenly-tamped edges since less pressure was applied (due to the tamper's tapered edges).

It's working for now, but in the future I'll look for a tamper that doesn't have such tapered edges.

Unless you're besotted with fancy handles, or absolutely require esthetic merit from your tamper, what more could you ask from one? This has perfect fit, perfect weight. One twirl and your espresso is packed and ready to go. Highly recommend it.

I bought the Saeco Aroma and decided I wanted to tamp the grounds (not needed for the Saeco but not the real point here). 53mm is a little less common so it was not easy to find the size anywhere locally. This is a perfect fit, and it was cheap compared to some of the ridiculous other ones with the gold handles and the platinum face. Come on, it's coffee grounds!
Well known brand, solit fit and finish and fits perfectly.

Nice finish and weight. Good fit in hand and perfect size for Saeco Aroma porta-filter. I gave it four stars only because the price is a little higher than I think it should be.

You can't mess up a tamper, unless you send the customer the wrong size. I ordered a 53mm but received a 55mm. When I brought this to the vender's attention, they immediately sent me a 53mm tamper and let me keep the 55mm tamper too. They were apologetic and I got a free 55mm tamper, so I can't complain.
