The MACAP CPS (Constant Pressure System) automatic tamper is an innovation designed to streamline espresso production by conforming all users to utilize the same tamp pressure. Using a lever, this tamper applies uniform and level pressure to the ground espresso in a group handle. The result is a predictable and consistent extraction; a leap forward in simplifying traditional espresso preparation.

Review: The tamp pressure is consistent as this product is described. You will have to fine-tune and grind settings but that is all. When the tamp pressure and grind of the beans are the same every time to pull a shot that is timed to your liking, the process is repeatable. The only previously variable step in the process is now as consistent as the other elements of espresso making. Voila!

Review: I am disabled and unable to tamp espresso shot. This device works absolutely wonderfully. It is extremely well manufactured. The customer service I received was courteous and professional. I hope to have another reason to purchase from 1st-line Equipment in the future.

Review: This is very well made and so easy to use. I love the fact that everyone now tamps the same and that makes for a very consistent latte. And they love using it because it takes the guess work out of tamping. Well worth the money.
