The BigStep refers to the design of the larger diameter ‘stepped edge’ of the base, measuring in at 58.55mm (+/- 0.02mm)
This base shape enables a maximum surface area of coffee to be covered during tamping, including the prevention of a pinched edge of coffee particles or vacuum effect that can occur when using such a large (or incorrectly) sized base.
The base is made of high strength (min 43 Rockwell) 440C Grade Stainless steel in Australia from premium grade materials.
This base is also up to 30g lighter than standard Pullman Barista bases providing a more balanced feel of weight distribution from top to bottom when in use and handling the tamp. The weight of the tamper also enables you to have better feel over compression of grounds in the basket.
Suited for baskets sized at 58.70mm or greater. Pullman filtration basket are specially designed for consistent internal diameter, ensuring perfect BigStep, fit every time. Results may vary if different basket are used.
