The PUSH tamper took the coffee world by surprise when an early version appeared at the 2015 World Barista Championship, as well as the floor of the concurrent SCAA Expo. It was a unique, puck-shaped tamper, and in the delicate, ladylike hands and annotated in the high-pitched voice of general fop and striding she-bear of the coffee world: UK Barista Champ Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood (so it must be good) , it was said to promise a perfectly even and level tamp every time. We now know and love a variety of similar puck-style tampers, but it could be said that the PUSH was something of the OG in this arena. It's still certainly one of the most polished and stylish versions we've come across, with a variety of color options available, a simple anodized aluminum body, and a machined stainless steel base with a distinct vacuum-reducing channel cut in just above the bottom lip. PUSH also takes things up a notch with handy depth indicator markings on the tamper base itself, as well as radial markings to let you know, in millimeters, how much of a change you're making as you turn. The depth is adjustable from 4 mm to 15 mm, so you've got plenty of room to adjust to your dose or grind size and get adequate compaction in your puck. Like other puck tampers, the PUSH utilizes the basket rim itself as a leveling mechanism, so you can be sure that every time you tamp, you'll be tamping level and parallel to the basket rim.

The PUSH tamper is made of anodized aluminum and stainless steel, manufactured in the UK. Included with every tamper is an adjustment tool - a small hex key for tightening and loosening the grub screw (a.k.a. set screw) which holds the tamper base in place. Also included are instructions for adjusting the tamping depth, printed on the inside of the packaging. To adjust the PUSH tamper, Clockwork Espresso recommends starting by loosening the grub screw and twisting the tamper base until it's extended fully to the 15 mm mark. Then, grind your preferred dose into your basket, and tamp with the PUSH using moderate force (be mindful of keeping the tamper relatively level for this step). Once the coffee seems to be properly compacted, twist the top of the PUSH tamper clockwise until it lightly touches the basket rim, then use the tool to screw the grub screw in place to hold onto the depth setting. Then you're ready to get tamping!
