It goes without saying that the secret to making real coffee at home, which smells divine and tastes even better, lies in the making. Use a proper coffee machine, and you’ll set yourself up for a good brew- but find a good-quality metal tamper to use with it, and success is pretty much guaranteed. Forget cheap plastic coffee pressers- where quality and usefulness are concerned, it’s a struggle to find a better tamper than this pretty silver and black one from Le’Xpress. Featuring a substantial pressing disc made from stainless steel and an easy-to-hold polypropylene handle, it makes light work of compacting coffee grounds in a flavour-packed ‘puck’, ready to be made into an espresso or other coffee. Branded with the elegant Le’Xpress logo, it would make a delightful gift for a collector of the range, or as an ideal starter gift for the friend who has just bought their first coffee maker.
