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.
  • Measurements: 16" H x 6.5" W x 8.25" D (40.5 cm H x 16.5 cm W x 21 cm D).
  • Weight: 8.4 pounds (3.7 kilograms).
  • Constant dynamic pressure: 55 pounds (25 kilograms)per manufacturer spec's.
  • Tamper diameter plates: (1) 51 mm, (1) 57.5 mm.
  • CE listed.
  • Made in Venice, Italy.
  1. This tamper is not made for tamping in rapid succession. In other words, if you want to double (or triple) tamp in succession in the same portafilter, you will need raise the tamper handle to the top position before re-tamping.
  2. Macap has selected 1st-line Equipment, LLC as direct importers for Macap espresso coffee grinders and professional tampers. If you are interested in distributing/reselling Macap products in North America, please contact us.
  3. This tamper may arrive with a little excess grease around the mechanism or surrounding portion of the bag. It can be wiped with a dry cloth upon receipt and will not have any impact on the operation of the grinder.
  4. Concept Art bases can screw onto this tamper. It leaves a gap but it is a secure fit.
  5. The tamping pressure is adjustable, but there are no instructions included, nor provided. In addition, there is no way to determine the exact pressure to adjust to.

"It works as advertised"

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.
