BLACK OAK UPGRADE
ALL STAINLESS BASES!
thanks to the high sales volume of the last two to three weeks ALL stainless steel bases will be shipping with our black oak handle until we recieve refreshed stock of natural beech handles from the shed (beards a blazing to catch up I promise) - likely to be Friday 13th December.
This was going to be our surprise Christmas stocking filler at a price close to the walnut but due to what the BBC are calling the international beech handle crisis you lucky people will be getting black oak at no extra cost.
but wait... there's more!
ALL BLACK CERAMIC BASES TOO!
and all the standard black ceramic bases are getting the black oak treatment too till the shedmen deliver the next batch of beech.
beech fans - you'll just have to wait for an update on the 13th!
we post to your country!
add international rate postage here.
we use airsure (for preference where available) or international signed for.
this option adds the correct amount to upgrade postage from uk prices.

fits many standard espresso tins (such as Lavazza, Vergnano, Pellini,and many others)
nb - does not fit illy tins.
porty blender is our own post roast blend of locally roasted beans, using the time honoured 4:4:2 formation so beloved of the 90s rosso neri. a solid all rounder but not entirely en vogue (ie not a single estate starburst), it blends a little of the old with a little of the new schools to make for an easy combination with milk. to keep things fresh we dont hold huge stocks of this - the beans are roasted and blended in small volumes on alternate mondays.
the perfect home barista combination - custom made mat and knocktop just what you need to protect your precious surfaces and blunt the thump. easy on the eye, easy on the ear and all with the wonderful simple tamper.
please contact us to confirm which size simple tamper you require here. this will ship with the stovepipe black tin to make a complete knockout box tamper combination.
Lippy £15.00 (£12.50 + VAT)
over 400g in weight, the lippy mat locks against the edge of your worktop and provides heavyweight tamping protection for your counter and your portafilter.
built to last not to replace, lippy was made for the prosumer & cafe markets and the quality is easy to feel: flimsy she ain't.
ideal for use with naked portafilters, the lippy's drop is long enough to protect commercial spouts but short enough not to foul drawers under steel and other slimmer profile countertops.
not imported from anywhere, this is 100% made in the uk to our custom design by people we trust so we can rest easy on the production ethics - they may be sweaty, they may work in a machine shop, but they sure aint kids!
suitable for the majority of prosumer machines and of course the stalwarts of the domestic scene such as the gaggia classic, rancilio silvia and many others.
baristas and commercial users: we would highly recommend you consider our heft tampers for all day use in moderate to high volume environments.
specially profiled to ease pressure on the hardworking hands and fingures of the guys n gals pulling the shots.
a real workman's tool made in marine grade steel for the long haul. c20% heavier than the simple and the next level up in terms of design and materials.
ships with a natural beech handle.
