Why use Eazytamp?

First, why does tamping at the right pressure help?

When hot water passes through ground coffee, its flavours are extracted. By correctly compressing ground coffee beans through tamping, you create resistance for the water as it passes through the coffee, whilst removing channels or pathways that water can pass through too easily.

If coffee is tamped evenly and with the right amount of pressure (the industry standard suggests baristas exert 30 lbs. (15kg) of pressure), as the water passes through it will extract the sweet flavours from the coffee.

What is the Eazytamp and what makes it so special?

The Eazytamp 5 Star Pro was developed in 2015 and is the world's first spring-loaded and levelling coffee tamper that controls 3 common variables that influence coffee quality during the tamping process:

(1) The tamping level (i.e. how flat and level the tamp sits on top of the ground coffee)
(2) Consistency of your tamping pressure (comes standard with a 15kg calibrated spring)
(3) The depth of your tamping.

Unlike stationary coffee tampers, the 5 Star Pro makes it easy to tamp ground coffee by removing these 3 variables from the coffee making process. There are no other tools needed to help tamp the ground coffee. They’re the perfect tamper for both aspiring home baristas and busy cafes. Plus, we’ve developed various handle shapes to suit your personal preferences. We also provide a choice of tamper bases – flat or infusion, which affects the flavour and acidity of the extracted coffee.

Our spring-loaded levelling coffee tampers are being used in thousands of homes and cafes around the world, and our customers love the build quality, ease of use and reliability our products.

Here's how it works:


So why should you use our tampers?

Eazytamp have been promoting intelligent coffee tamping since 2007, long before many others in the coffee industry. We have been developing innovative tampers since this time, and the Eazytamp 5 Star Pro, first introduced to the market in 2015 is the pinnacle innovation for hand-tampers, addressing 3 issues arising during the tamping process in one tool.

As the original intelligent coffee tamper manufacturers, we have made sure that our tampers are the best tool, made using precision engineering and high quality materials to give you a tool that is simple to use and takes the guess work out of coffee making.

Spring loaded tampers vs Stationary Tampers 

If you are still not convinced about the benefits of using a spring-loaded coffee tamper, the table below shows key differences between our tampers and other stationary tampers on the market, based on the common variables that should be controlled when tamping ground coffee.


Eazytamp 5 Star Pro

Stationary Tamper


✔ Pressure is controlled by a pre-calibrated spring

7kg, 10kg or 15kg springs are installed inside our tampers.

✘ Inconsistent pressure gets applied

You have to guess how hard you’re pressing the ground coffee

Level Tamping

Ensures your tamping is level

The levelling plate sits on top of the basket, ensuring flat tamping

✘ Can't prevent tamping unevenly

You need to control the level of your tamping manually


✔ Our various base thicknesses allow you to tamp shallow or deeper 

7.5mm and 12mm bases are available

Can be used to whatever depth required inside the portafilter basket

Other features

Various handle designs available
