Rocket has created a coffee press (tamper) that meets its quality standards in every respect. First, it is made entirely of stainless steel. This means that it is extremely durable, and there are no pieces that will deteriorate or come loose over time ㄧ the tamper is welded in one piece.
Its 58mm diameter is of course suitable for all Rocket Espresso Milano machines, commercial or residential, but also for machines of other brands that require the use of 58mm filters. If you don't know what diameter tamper to use with your espresso machine, the instruction manual or a quick search on the web may help.
The Rocket tamper also fits perfectly into the space provided on the Rocket brewing station.
STEPS FOR USE:
After placing the desired amount of ground coffee in the filter holder, press the holder onto a clean, flat surface. Use your fingers to roughly level the coffee.
Insert the tamper into the filter holder and press very lightly (about 30 lbs of pressure). It is not necessary to press hard for the action to be effective.
Once the tamper is removed, use your fingers to remove any coffee residue that may have spilled out of the filter during pressing.
Insert the filter holder into the brew unit and continue making your espresso.
FOR COFFEE GEEKS:
The 30 lb. measurement is the one that the industry says will most often produce the best result. However, you can experiment with different blends and origins to decide what you like best.
