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.

Really nice product, hefty and shiny.

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

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.

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.

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 have an old espresso machine and it kept making weak drip coffee instead of nice shots of espresso. And everyone kept tell me it was my grind. Although grind is an integral part in the whole espresso making activity, apparently all I needed was a sturdy tamper. Not the plastic one the machine came with. I spent $150 on a grinder. $80 getting the machine tuned up. And finally, $20 on a tamper ... the latter working like a charm.

Smooth and quality, it seems like a single piece lathed Tamper. I cannot tell a difference between this and a $80 tamper; this is one of my best buys on Amazon. It almost squeaks against your skin and seems to have a anti-static property to it, NOTE: there are NO seams on the bottom, or anywhere else, totally smooth.

Pros: Total quality, as mentioned above, and it's just a bit longer than most tampers and that offers more control and it allows one to find the center point more accurately while pressing your tamp, & It's a perfect tight fit
Cons: NONE

Here's a list of what I have tried with this personally and a conglomerate of what other people have tried (also you can check your manual). :)
