Compressore (com|pres|so|re) is the Italian word for tamper and we couldn’t think of a better way to pay homage to the birth place of espresso than to give this handle design an Italian name.

The Compressore handles are beautifully anodized with a silky matte finish in the specified color allowing long lasting durability and grandeur. This is one of the nicest most natural feeling handles on the market. Fits all Espresso Parts coffee/espresso tamp piston bases.

Anodizing, or anodising, is an Electrolytic Passivation (Electroplating) process used to increase the thickness and density of the natural oxide layer on the surface. Anodized finishes are generally much stronger and more adherent than most paints platings, and powder coats making them less likely to crack and peel. Anodizing increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance.
