  • This is list of “Generic” recommended tamper base sizes per machine. (un-matched)
  • Use the colour key, to determine which tamper you can choose from, and if you are eligible for BigStep + Filtration
  • *please note - “various models” refers to only some models within that brand. This applies to both tamper size and if our baskets will fit. If your model is not listed, please email  

STILL UNSURE WHICH TAMPER YOU NEED FOR YOUR MACHINE?

  • If you have an industry standard porta-filter (58.00mm) - you have the option of Generic (1), Matched (2) or BigStep/Filtration Series Matched (3) if your machine is in blue on this chart. It is up to you which results you would like.

  • If your porta-filter is smaller than industry standard size - you are eligible for the Generic (1) or Matched (2) option.

  • If you would like to have your base Matched (2), please send in your current basket to ensure best fit.
