Espresso coffee needs to be served in a totally white ceramic cup. It should be cone-shaped with the cup able to hold a maximum of 60 cubic centimeters (cm3). Before serving, the cups must be kept dry and warm … that’s why you’ll often see coffee cups stacked, open-side up, in their space on top ofcommercial espresso coffee machines

Tamping the coffee grounds in the filter holder cup is important. If it’s not hard enough, you’ll get a weak extraction with no crema. If it’s too hard, you’ll get over extraction or a very slow pour… it may not even pour at all.Tampers are often included with your coffee bean grinder or can be purchased separately. To select the correct size, measure the inside diameter of your filter holder cup.

Tampers are made from various materials eg aluminum, wood, plastic, stainless steel, etc. A good easy to use tamper that gives you consistent tamper pressure is the spring loaded model … seen here on the left.

This stainless steel frothing jug makes milk frothing easier. It also allows you to feel the temperature of your milk, as you froth it. It’s ready when the temperature reaches maximum 700C. They range in size from 200ml to 900ml.
