Our 53.3mm double-sided tamper & distributor combo is precision fit specifically for the Breville 54mm portafilter baskets. This includes, but is not limited to, the Barista Express, Pro, Touch, Bambino Plus, Infuser and Duo-Temp Pro.
This convenient dual-purpose distribution/tamping tool allows you to evenly distribute your coffee grounds, and then tamp your grounds with consistent pressure, every time.
STEP 1 - Load your portafilter basket with the desired amount of freshly ground coffee.
STEP 2 - Retract the distributor side to it's shallowest depth, and place the distributor on your portafilter, blade side down.
STEP 3 - Gently spin the distributor until your coffee grounds have been evenly distributed and leveled. If the distributor does not reach the coffee, adjust the depth accordingly. Note: you do not want to be applying heavy pressure to the grounds at this stage -- only enough to level the coffee in the basket.
STEP 4 - Flip the distributor over and extend the tamper (flat side) to its maximum height. Tamp your grounds to your desired pressure.
STEP 5 - For consistent tamping every time, adjust the tamper depth so it matches the depth of the tamp you created in Step 4.

The tamper is heavy duty stainless steel, and once you get it adjusted correctly, it greatly enhances the quality of your ground coffee extractions. I thought I was doing a pretty good job of tamping using the instrument that comes with the Breville Barista Pro, but with using this tamper I'm easily getting about 15% more volume of coffee in my extractions since the even tamping allows for the correct amount of pressure to build up. Do yourself a favor and buy this, along with the Crema dosing cup, and funnel. I use that combo with the Crema bottomless portafilter and it's all a huge improvement in quality of taste and volume compared to what comes standard with the Breville.
This is a great product. Nice heft and solid craftsmanship. Using this leveler and tamper duo helps to create an extremely consistent shot.
