From Europe (The Netherlands) I ordered an anodized aluminum handle and two stainless steel bases. Also, I ordered engraving and sent a logo-like design of my initials. Delivery was sooner than I expected, and execution flawless. My first shots of coffee I pulled with these tampers gave excellent results. I needed 10% less coffee to arrive at the same quality espresso and none of the shots had visible side channeling clues, something that happened to me a lot before. Peter.
Thought I would send a quick follow up note and thank you for the coffee tamper. After two weeks, my husband has came to really love and cherish the gift that you helped me get for him. The wood is exquisite and the fact that you enable for personalization of even a single tamper is great. ... [He was] touched because of the trouble we went to in personalizing it for him. "I didn't think a tamper would make such a difference, but it does."
Reg, got my tamper the other day and just wanted to tell you how much I'm impressed with it and enjoying using it. It's absolutely beautiful and extraordinarily functional. Many thanks, Bud
The tamper arrived yesterday and I was able to give it to my husband for an anniversary gift. I thank you for helping me give him such a special gift. He was so surprised and pleased. I promise to pass along your name and web site to all who might be interested. Great product - Great job - Great customer service!
Hey Reg, Thanks for your wonderful craftsmanship and the superb quality of your products. Recently I purchased one of your tampers from 123espresso. It is a rare pleasure to use this product . Thanks again, Jeff Howard
Thanks for the quick service! I just received the tamper. Wow! Absolutely stunning! You've elevated the tamper to a work of art. Thanks very much.
Hi, Just a note to let you know that I received my tamper today (that was really quick!), and all I can say is wow!! :) It was worth every penny. Thanks, Pierre
I would like to offer you a hearty THANK YOU for the care and craftsmanship with which you made the beautiful tamper for me - it just arrived in this afternoon's mail. Beyond its attractive looks, I love its 'feel' when I'm holding it, and its serious weight.
Great job! Your tamper is already my favorite Christmas present! I just wanted to tell you how satisfied I am with it. ... The craftsmanship is superior. It somehow makes the espresso making more satisfying. I'd highly recommend the product. Thanks again.
Thanks again, Reg, I received your tamper today. It is beautiful and it fits my filter basket perfectly! I couldn't be happier. Thank you. I've done exactly what you propose, and look forward to being able to use your beautiful tamper . . . .. definitely the nicest looking one I own! Thanks again.
Reg (& Cori)...
I just received my newest Reg Barber tamper. The wood is beyond beautiful, the engraving classic, and the new "CFlat" piston, done up in brass is, in my opinion, craftsmanship at it's very best. Better still, it fits the 51mm basket perfectly...as I knew it would. My Reg 58mm is already jealous!!
I assure you my Reg('s) have an honored place in my kitchen/espresso bar. With warmest regards,
Robert Jason (Brentwood, TN USA)
Hi Cori, I just received my tamper. It is beautiful! - well worth the short wait. The strait grain is perfectly oriented and symmetrical. Please thank the individual/s who were involved in the woodworking, etc. They/he/she did a great job. Thanks again.
My Reg Barber tamper arrived today. It's a piece of art. So nicely done. And although I couldn't believe it, it has improved the taste of my espresso from the very first tamp on. Thanks again, W.
