This coffee tamper tool is a soft delicate pink. Reg Barber makes the tamper himself with aluminum, turned on a CNC lathe. It is then coated with a dry powder applied electro-statically, cured under heat, and when completed has a beautiful smooth finish. We use powder coating because it is tougher than the conventional paint and looks stunning! Custom engraving looks brilliant with all the Reg Barber coffee tampers!
Reg Barber offers four different base materials for you to choose from.
Stainless steel resists rust and corrosion and is a heavier metal. It is the recommended base material at RB.
Aluminum is a softer metal which possesses the ability to resist corrosion.
Brass is a durable metal that is relatively resistant to tarnishing. It is used for decorative purposes due to it's bright gold appearance. It is not as dense as stainless but minutely heavier.
Copper is the heaviest metal we offer for bases. It is aesthetically pleasing. It requires the most maintenance to care for and is a very soft metal.
