Espresso & Cappuccino Accessories

Espresso tamping is very important with most espresso/cappuccino makers.

Proper tamping allows the hot water to bathe the coffee grounds thoroughly before escaping into the cup. With improper tamping, the water makes a quick channel to its escape route, producing a watery cup. (CoffeeResearch.Org has a good tutorial on tamping.)

The coffee must be ground correctly for your particular espresso maker. Tamping won't help very coarse coffee grounds, and will only clog the porta-filter (handled filter holder) if the grounds are too fine

Tamping is not recommended with stovetop espresso makers, as the amount of pressure produced may not be adequate to go through tamped grounds.

After filling the coffee grounds and before tamping, tap the porta-filter gently against a flat surface, to even the coffee.

Buying Tip: Measure the inside edge of your coffeemaker filter, and choose a tamper that fits snugly inside.

Knocking out the coffee grinds is made easy with a knock-out box. Gently tap the porta-filter against it to remove the grounds from the filter.

By the way, if you're making multiple cups, leave the porta-filter in place on the espresso maker, and knock out the grinds when you're ready to make the next cup. This will keep the porta-filter hotter and your dose of espresso will also stay hotter longer.

Stainless Steel Milk Frothing PitchersFrothing pitchers used for cappuccino have curved bodies that help the milk to swirl better when frothing from the steam wand of an espresso and cappuccino maker. We have several frothing pitchers available. Or use one of the many pump type frothers on that page.

Cleaning your espresso maker on a regular basis insures not only a consistently good cup, but also a longer life for your machine. Check the unit's instructions and get help with our cleaning brush and solution.
