Beautiful craftsmanship. Gorgeous and high quality. Jeremy was thoughtful on messaging to see if I needed this before Christmas or not. (I didn't) Items came quickly and are beautiful, precise, and high quality.

A friend told me that this was part of his toolkit for making espresso. I didn't entirely believe it, but I'll do anything to improve my espresso game. I have to say, the quality and crema of my espresso, particularly in an Elektra Micro Casa a Leva which isn't known for its crema production, increased dramatically. It's amazing to see how one tool minimized the amount of channeling I had in my espresso packing work. Highly recommend, I feel really bad for anyone getting into coffee who gets the time-old traditional advice of getting just a tamper.
