Complete tamper consisting of:
BigStep Base for SAGE machines - Barista Handle Gold Matte - Spacer Alu
BigStep Base 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 experiences.
Suitable for all SAGE machines (Breville) with a 54.00 mm portafilter diameter.
Pullman Barista Handle - Anodized - Gold Matte
Robust, classic, straight forward - the handle made of anodized aluminum. The electrolytic oxidation of aluminum makes the material harder, more durable and more corrosion-resistant. Anodized handles are also largely insensitive to impact damage because no color is applied during anodization, but rather the top aluminum layer is converted into an oxide. The resulting insensitivity to water and the low weight make the handle the perfect companion for the professional barista.
Available in many different, stylish colors and special editions.
The handles are available with (BLACK TOP) or without (SOLID) black knock insert. The knock insert is made of durable acetal and is not only functional, it also looks good. A 'must have' for baristas who 'knock' the portafilter for the initial distribution of the ground coffee.
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.
