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.
Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the filter baskets for the DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker. It's too big.
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.
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.
Well known brand, solit fit and finish and fits perfectly.
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
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). :)

fits the Starbucks Saeco perfectly. Substantial feel. A pleasure to use. Simple things in life can make the morning coffee ritual even more satisfying.Published 29 days ago by Cheesewhiz
Great tamper in a hard to find size. A great improvement over the plastic tamper (probably 51mm) that was too small and flimsy. Read morePublished 1 month ago by David L. Cutler
Its a piece of metal with a flat part to tamp coffee. The diameter is accurate. I don't expect its performance to change over the next 30 years. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Justin
Very good quality, perfect fit for Saeco Aroma and Starbucks Barista machines.Published 4 months ago by eb1
Very nice quality. Difficult to praise this tamper as its only function is to tamp the espresso coffee. It has some heft to it and a nice aluminum finish.Published 4 months ago by ga1320
