A smooth cup of espresso all starts with preparation. Tampers are used to push grounds into a portafilter where they form a tightly compressed, evenly dispersed "hockey puck" that forces the water to seep through all the nooks and crannies of your grounds. Your baristas will regularly use tampers, so it's important to find a large, sturdy tamper that fits comfortably in one's hand; repetitive motions (like tamping grounds) result in serious injuries like carpal tunnel, so keep your team safe and feeling good by using proper form when handling a tamper.
