Bottom Line: No nonsense automatic tamper who will do the job.  Consistency, Solid Build, Excellent Price.
Positive Product Points

Very Consistent, solid, well-built machine.  Choose this one if you're a cafe owner who wants consistency on quality coffee made by your employee.

Negative Product Points

Almost none.  Suits my needs well.

Detailed Commentary

I was displeased by my employees who are unable to maintain the consistency of their espresso shots.  Finally I had enough and started researching for an automatic tamper.  I went to do my research and easily spotted this beauty.  Then I went to search at numerous websites offering this product.

Luckily enough I found the cheapest price from my own espresso equipment supplier here in Chicago.  Cora Italian Specialties offer one for $269 at their website www.corainc.com !!!   What a steal...  Everybody else offering the product for $350 ++.

I ordered online because I have no time to pick up the item.  The shipping price is honest and reasonable.

Couldn't be happier with the product, owned it for 6 months now.

Buying Experience

I called the Sales Manager Paul before I purchased it online.  He was very descriptive and friendly.  Would definitely come back if i need more supplies.
