Tasse-café is a little «commun», but says it all. Pressoir is used for grapes or other fruits. Tamper is french like parking, shopping, store, newsletter, bypass, etc. Just put a «le» or a «la» before it and you're done. Works only in France, though.

Ciao Philippe, I've been selling espresso machines in Montreal and I have always used the word "pressoir" when referring to a tamper. My clients understand me clearly and it seems as the most proper translation (to my opinion). JF
