FRANCISFRANCIS X1 - two part tamper for 2ND GENERATION GROUND portafilter handle.

The tamper is normally only available as part of the full handle kit. Occasionally we have extra stock from the service department that allows us to offer you the tamper at a much better rate than the full kit. This replacement two part tamper is identical to the original tamper that was supplied with your machine.

The tamper is an essential item if you have a 2nd generation machine, as the base (dispersion screen) remains in place in the portafilter handle as you extract your espresso shot.  With the tamper in complete form, you tamp down the coffee in the basket (one flat scoop for the single basket, two flat scoops for the double basket), then the stem handle section is twisted off leaving the base (screen) in place on top of the coffee within the portafilter handle.  The portafilter is then placed in position in the group head. Without the base (screen) the process does not operate properly and the coffee results are greatly compromised.

Please note if you own a X1 machine, this only replaces the tamper from the 2nd generation. If you need help confirming which machine you have, please follow the link below.


Also compatible with X3, X4 and X5 machines - they have the identical boiler, group head, pod handle and ground coffee handle.


Not for use with TRIO pod machines, Classic Aluminium (1st Gen) or 3rd generation ground coffee versions.


Please send an EMAIL if you need any further information.
