There is more to life than coffee, but it’s a great place to start!

And wherever there’s good coffee, PUQpress isn’t far behind. Actually we’re right up there – on the bench next to the espresso machine. The Robin to the barista’s Batman.

In baristas we trust

But we wanted baristas to be able to trust us.

So we set out to create a tool they can depend on. And that tool was the PUQpress: the world’s first precision coffee tamper. We recognised that manually tamping grounds at the same angle and force was the thorn in a barista’s side. PUQpress replaces the pressure of manual tamping with precision and consistency.

Making good espresso is an art, but it’s also a science. Controlling the tamping variable leads to increased efficiency and quality, sure, but it also offers the freedom to focus on other parts of the craft – those that can’t be automated. It was in this age of automation that we realised giving a machine the boring and repetitive stuff enables the barista to do everything that makes the job worthwhile. Profiling new flavours. Creating beautiful latte art. Providing premium and personal customer service.

We’ll do the hard part. You take care of the crema.

Because that’s the best bit: in coffee, and in life.
