Macap CPS Tamper

The Macap CPS tamper (Constant Pressure System) tamper. It’s a high end innovation designed to streamline espresso production.

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

Using a lever, the tamper applies uniform and level pressure to the ground coffee.

The result is a predictable and consistent extraction of coffee. A leap forward in simplifying traditional espresso preparation.

This is the absolute most efficient way of measuring the perfect tamp, every time.

The machine conveniently lets you know when you have performed correctly by clicking. When it reaches the ultimate pressure point it stops. A foolproof way to flatten your coffee grinds. Eliminating all the guess work.

Advantages of using the Macap CPS Tamper.

One of the biggest issues when setting up a grinder is how coarse or fine to grind. Especially in relation to how hard or soft you tamp.

Tamping at different pressures will slow or speed up the extraction process. Hot water pouring through the grounds can be hard to visually realise.

Therefore when setting the grind size of a coffee bean you could be fooling yourself.

Here is one scenario: 

You get some beans. Grind them at your usual setting. Only to find that the water is either running too slowly or too quickly through the filter basket.

This could be caused by the fact that you need to adjust your grinder settings. Go coarser to make the water run through quicker. Go finer to make the water run through at a slower rate.

Or it could be caused by inconsistent tamping. The coarseness of your grind could be correct. Because if you tamp too hard by applying too much pressure, you will slow it down more than need be.

Go too soft and it could be that you are not compressing the coffee tight enough. Allowing the water to run through the grounds too quickly.

The Macap CPS tamper performs the operation correctly every time. Once the correct pressure is achieved the device clicks. The click indicates that it has performed tamping at 30 lbs per square inch. Very clever.

Macap CPS tamper – the ultimate.

Ultimately this device takes one important variable out of the equation. When you are setting your coffee machine up.

You know the tamp is correct so therefore it has to be the grinder setting that is at fault if you are not getting the shot you require.

Two other advantages of using this machine are that because it is a desktop model of considerable size, you are unlikely to lose it. Staff are unlikely to steal it from commercial premises.

It also looks impressive sat next to an espresso machine. The Macap CPS tamper gives an instant professional look to a setup.

Automate Tamping for Commercial use.

For coffee shop, pub, restaurant or cafe use these are almost essential. A big problem with the coffee machine is staff ability to produce consistently good coffee drinks.

When under pressure to keep the Latte and Cappuccino drinks running. Without losing customers off the end of the queue, you’ll need all the help you can get.

The Macap CPS helps you achieve consistency in coffee making. Once again it eliminates one of the links in the chain when troubleshooting a problematic pour.

This machine comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s return to base warranty.
