Chris King Tamper at Wright Bros Brew & Brew Feb 5, 2014


I’ve always wanted a Chris King tamper, but never had the use for one. A good espresso machine is way out of my budget and besides, I like socializing at coffee shops and supporting the business. I’m lucky to have two shops close by here in Austin, one of which being the Brew & Brew. It’s a half beer, half coffee bar and it just so happened they were in need of a new tamper.

Last week, I brought them a brand new red Chris King Tamper (thanks guys!) and yesterday, during the full nuke sunset, I went by to shoot photos of Megan, the barista using it. I can’t promise epicness, or bikes, but the tamper is damn fine.

Did I mention they have all the colors of the campione del mondo in stock now?

Thanks to much to Chris King for bestowing such rad gifts to my local coffee shop. I personally love the espresso cup and saucer.

    I gave in and was lucky enough to grab a purple one. cant beat it for bike/coffee related ‘i must have one of those’ items.

    Thank you so much for this post – I was really surprised when realized that the espresso cup and saucer are actually produced in a factory less than 10 miles away from my house! I’m gonna save big on shipping costs here hehehe.

    My wife uses one of these at work here in PDX and loves it. She says it is the perfect weight. I say its Chris King and rad.

    I have the same red one and it’s used once or twice daily. It makes making coffee that much better. Now, for the double shot espresso cups.
