BaristaSpace Tampion Station + Dosing Funnel 58MM Set
Nice product 5 stars..
I am very happy with my purchase and all the tools met my expectations, however I just want to mention that is the funnel includes magnetic parts so it stuck into the portafilter and doesn’t move will be a great things to have
The dosing funnel function is excellent, better than some of the products in the same class. It hugs the inner wall of the basket tightly and leaves no gap for the coffee fines to slip through, resulted in a very clean basket rim after the ring is lifted off the basket. The height of the lower part of the funnel is also about the right size, allowing it to lay flush with rim of the basket while resting on the ears of portafilter, making it a solid coupling to the portafilter as one unit. I brought 3 other similar funnels and this one works best. There is only one that's (far) better, but even that's not perfect either. Aluminum is also lighter than stainless steel, but due to its hugging tightly to the portafilter, it's adequate to stay on the portafilter firmly with little fear of its fall off, making a mess.
The tamping station is also excellent, both looking excellent and functional, probably the best looking station with the gold color version. It's a little loose for my portafilter, but that is expected of a general purposed product, one size fits all, and the fix can be easily done. The height adjustment support for the handle is also a very nice touch, adding a little more stability to the tamping station and portafilter as a unit, suitable for one hand operation. Only if the rubber gasket extends a little upward in addition to inward, that would allow the portafilter to float completely, not touching even the upper surface of the station, which might create damages over time from rubbing.
The best probably is the price: For both the ring and the tamping station, the price is unbeatable for the combo. A very satisfied customer.
