Which tamper for me?
One common question we often hear is, "Which tamper is better - the Barista or the Nexus? The short answer is - neither; they have different features which will appeal to different people.
The Barista tamper is the flagship product, offering a full feature set - a wide range of handle materials and colours, choices for bases, a range of engraving options, all wrapped up in a product that came about through extensive pre-production consultation and prototyping with commercial operators to ensure it was ready for prime time from day 1. The result has been a unit which meets the unique requirements of high-volume high-quality commercial espresso bars and has exceeded the expectations of those involved in the prototyping process. The Barista was released in 2008.
The Nexus tamper offers a classic ergonomic shape, a choice of handle and base styles and simple but solid componentry. The Nexus is a mid-range product and is ideal for those who don't need the features or higher price of the Barista. The Nexus was released in 2011 as a replacement for the Deluxe Tamper.
The Deluxe tamper was the original Pullman tamper which was first produced in early 2003 based on Greg Pullman's own design. It went gone through a number of subsequent refinements based on customer feedback to make it the best it could be, but ultimately was replaced by the Nexus to allow wider acceptance in commercial environments.
Either tamper is suitable for commercial or domestic use and can be made to suit any machine, but here's a brief list of reasons why you may choose to buy one tamper or the other:
