Tamper & Tamping

Tamping is Espressonian for “packing ground coffee into a filter basket.” Tamping is an important part of making a good espresso or cappuccino. After your filter basket is full of ground coffee, you need to compress the coffee grounds, and this process is called 'tamping'. By tamping the coffee grounds, you pack it together a lot tighter, meaning it takes longer for the water to flow through the coffee, thereby extracting more flavor from the coffee grounds. If you didn't tamp the coffee grounds, the water would run through the coffee very quickly, resulting in a weak watery coffee, and a lot of wastage of coffee beans.
