SOLO COFFEE TAMPER
Artpresso Design, creators of the La Marzocco Slim knockbox drawer and Mazzer Grinder accessories, has released a new coffee tamper design that uniquely performs two very important functions for the barista. The Solo Tamp is the only device on the market that serves as both an adjustable distribution tool and coffee tamp all in one. Quality, consistent, and delicious extractions are what you can expect with the Solo.
Steven Monti, founder of Artpresso Design, developed the Solo to solve the problems distribution tools and tamps currently on the market have. The goals are to improve workflow and replace two separate tools with one, improve re-distribution consistency while maximizing coffee distribution with the least downward pressure, allow for infinite adjustability with ease and simplicity, remove the possibilities of channeling and micro channeling, ensure quality and consistently tamped extractions, and be ergonomically designed.
Scott Callender, of La Marzocco USA partnered with Steven Monti and tested many prototypes before finalizing on the design, function, and accuracy of the Solo Tamp. Scott’s extensive experience and knowledge of the specialty coffee industry and La Marzocco coffee machines aligned perfectly with Steven’s product design experience and innate problem solving skills. Significant considerations were methodically executed, tested and designed to create the best coffee distributor and Tamp on the market.
