Lattes, mochas, cappuccinos- some of my favorite drinks this time of year are espresso based.   It looks like I'm not alone in enjoying an occasional espresso beverage. According to the National Coffee Association, in 2012 14% of US consumers consumed an espresso based beverage a day (1).   Do you prefer brewed coffee, or espresso?  Are you asking, "What is the difference between the two?"

Question

Dear Dr. Brew,
I've been in the coffee industry for about one year now, and I feel like its time I buy my very own, customized tamper. Since tampers are expensive, come in different shapes and materials, and are offered by so many retailers online, what should I look for and where should I go to find a tamper that works best for me?
From,
Neil
