Reg Barber introduced this coffee tamper tool to alleviate pressure from your fingers and into your palm. This barista tool is made with a dense rosewood from Africa with a deep red color accentuated by a dark grain. After it is turned on a wood lathe it is hand sanded and polished for a beautiful finish. The process itself can take up to two days.
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. I It is aesthetically pleasing. It requires the most maintenance to care for and is a very soft metal.
