I just received my PuqPress (58.3mm for VST baskets) today. It is so easy to set up and use. Most importantly it is accurate and consistent! There are some new style tampers available that utilize an collar to insure a level tamp, but rely upon depth "guesstimates" to achieve an approximate desired pressure. Different coffee profiles fill the port-a-filter basket differently, so the consistency (and quality) of manual tamping will always be questionable. This is the first device that electronically manages the pressure regardless of Roast style, grind, and basket size ensuring every tamp is perfect and level every time. This machine is well worth the money for prosumer's IMHO, and coffee shops should not be without it!!
