2crochethooks gift guide

Hi all! Kristina here. I know I missed a few weeks on the gift guide, sorry about that. We took a break for summer. Today I’m sharing a gift I actually got for myself. 


Awhile back I watched an episode of Good Eats (great show!) and he was talking about espresso. I learned a ton from that episode and actually got a little metal pitcher to make cappuccino and lattes based on that episode.

When the opportunity arose to get a metal tamper I jumped on it! I compared the metal tamper from x-Chef with the plastic one that came with the espresso maker and my what a difference! 

Since its sturdy metal you don’t have to put quite as much pressure or press as long.

 Also the little plastic spoon one does not go all the way to the edge but my new metal one does! So no powder brushed up on top of the tamper.

The taste was also affected, we got a richer espresso than before, we made sure to use the same espresso as before to keep it fair. All in all this would make a great simple and inexpensive gift for any coffee lover. Pair it with a container of espresso to make it even more special.

Warning; make sure they actually have an espresso maker and don’t already have a metal tamper, haha. 

What do you think of this gift? Do you like espresso? How do you take your espresso? I like to just add a shot to my coffee! 

Thanks for hanging out. See you next week!
