Making the perfect espresso requires the control of many variables. One variable that always comes into play is tamping pressure. If your tamping pressure is inconsistent, too low or too high, you won’t get uniform compression of your espresso grounds. If your grounds aren’t compressed evenly and uniformly, water will find the easiest way through the compressed coffee, creating uneven extraction.
For the best results, your tamping pressure should be the same every time. If your tamping pressure varies each time you tamp, it will be harder to determine what adjustments needed to improve subsequent shots – is it a difference in tamping pressure, tamping technique, grind size, etc.? Using a calibrated tamper that produces 30lbs of tamping pressure every time allows you to eliminate the effect varying tamping pressures can have on your shot.
