Tamper BigStep for SAGE machines I 53.40mm
SAGE machines provide great extraction, but the ability to reduce channeling is limited with standard tampers.
The Pullman SAGE BigStep base was developed to minimize channeling at the edges even with the smaller SAGE diameters. Like the large Big-Step with 58.55 mm diameter, its smaller SAGE brother also significantly reduces channeling when using the standard Breville filter. The 53.40mm SAGE Big-Stop uses the same patented technology as the big one to prevent a vacuum from forming when camping. Here is our video comparison .
If you don't have any experience with dosing coffee, using the BigStep will help you. Coffee needs room to expand with the addition of water. An indication of the correct amount of coffee in the sieve: if the upper edge of the BigStep is below the upper edge of the sieve when tamped, use a little more coffee, if the upper edge of the tamper is above the upper edge of the sieve, use a little less. Of course, this is only a rough guide that can and should be adjusted depending on the coffee, personal preferences and experience. All handles from our barista handle category are suitable for the BigStep-SAGE. Just add and get started.
Pullman Barista Handle I Australian Oak
Australian Oak ( Grevillea robusta) is a deciduous tree up to 40m tall that is native to the eastern coast of Australia.
The Australian (silver) oak is often used in furniture construction due to its resistance to wood rot. The pink-red hardwood with a medium-dense grain is striking. This leads to a natural staining pattern on the vertical surfaces of the handle.
Australian oak has a beautiful, natural feel, is very warm and pleasant to the touch and ideal for a natural tamper grip.
Easy to clean with a soft, damp cloth.
The hardwood handles are very popular and provide a great contrast to stainless steel machines and work surfaces.
Spacer - Spacer for individually adjusting Barista and BigStep tampers to the anatomy of the hand.
Color ALU: the 5mm spacer is installed, the versions in 2mm and 8mm are included for possible subsequent adjustment.
Suitable for all SAGE machines (Breville) with a 54.00 mm portafilter diameter.
