Barista Hustle Tamper with Case ( 58.4 mm)
Barista Hustle's signature tamper is designed for bar work—it's light but balanced, durable, and when the inevitable drops and dings happen, the base is designed to be inexpensive and easy to replace. Made of black anodized aluminum, the tamper body is slim and smooth, easy to hold with just enough texture that it won't be slippery in wet hands. The cutout near the base is designed to reduce suction when removing the tamper, to prevent a dislodged or cracked puck. A 58.4 mm steel flat piston is oversized to make the most of precision baskets like those by VST, Pullman, or La Marzocco—but that might mean it's too tight a fit in a standard 58 mm basket.
Each Barista Hustle tamper comes complete with its own padded carrying case with side zipper. The overall height of the tamper is 3.4 in, or about 8.6 cm. Its weight comes in at 250 grams, or about 8.8 oz. Materials include type III hard anodized aluminum and 304 stainless steel.
