Pullman BigStep MK3 tamper for maximum extraction and durability
The Pullman's Big Step MKIII tamper has the same patented design as the standard BigStep and is precisely matched to the Pullman Filtration 876 filter baskets. The tamper and filter baskets are designed in such a way that the ground coffee is evenly pressed over the entire surface. This prevents channeling and thus increases the total extraction and the ultimate taste experience.
What has changed with the BigStep MK3 tamper?
The difference between the standard BigStep and the MK3 tamper is the surface coating. This gold coating offers even more advantages to the hard 440-stainless steel.
- A 2-10 times longer life than uncoated steel
- Superior protection of the patented edge of the BigStep tamper
- Scratch resistant and low coefficient of friction
- No chemical reaction to liquids and food
The highest quality material has been used in the design of this espresso tool. The tamper feels weighty and balanced. The base of the tamper is straight and made of hardened 440 stainless steel. This makes it strong and will not damage it quickly.
- 58.55 mm for precision filter baskets
- Rubber grip reduces joint tension
- 5 mm spacer is included
- Sturdy 440-stainless steel base with renewed coating
- Reduced chance of a broken puck thanks to the beautiful design
- Leaves little to no coffee residue
There is a choice of different color and material handles. Go for a powder-coated aluminum or a wooden handle for a luxurious look. The wooden handles are lighter and by choosing the handle and spacer you can put together the perfect tamper.
The BigStep MKIII comes with a 5 mm spacer ring. Other ring sizes are optionally available to adjust the tamper exactly to your finger height and hand size. The rings can be used alone or in combination. They are available in sizes 2, 5 and 8 millimeters.
Slightly above the metal base there is a fine rubber ring. This helps absorb some of the pressure on the fingers while tamping the coffee well.
A very exact fit
Pullman Big Step MK3 is a true precision tamper. Due to the excellent fit, there is normally a chance of breaking the puck due to suction. Fortunately, this was considered during the design. The small rim around the base creates an airflow as the pusher is retracted. This prevents a vacuum and keeps the coffee cake free of cracks.
You feel the difference
While you are tamping the coffee, there will be little slack. There is not really the possibility to move the BigStep MK3 back and forth in the filter basket. This indicates how exactly the size of the tamper is designed to fit. This guarantees the best results.
