A tamper station, also known as a tamping station or pressing station, is an important tool for baristas when preparing coffee professionally with a portafilter. It is used to hold the portafilter of an espresso machine in place and keep it stable while the coffee grounds are pressed on evenly with a tamper. This is crucial to achieve a good extraction and thus a high-quality espresso. A tamper station usually also contains a recess for storing the tamper. In addition, it protects the work surface from damage. To get the most out of the tamper station, fill the portafilter with evenly ground coffee, place it in the station, secure it in place and press on the coffee grounds with the tamper. The portafilter can then be removed from the tamper station and inserted into the coffee machine.
