I have been intrigued by the decent self-leveling tamper, but it only comes in a 58mm version. I recently came aware of the Normcore which makes a 53.3mm tamper that will fit my La Spaziale. However, I went to youtube and saw a review in which the "travel" of the tamper was stated to not be enough for the Vivaldi.

Anyone with experience with the Normcore and the Vivaldi portafilter?

In light of no responses, I decided to contact the manufacturer. They noted a travel length of 17mm. Based on my measurements, it should work within the range of my dosage. I ordered one today and will update this post should someone have a similar question down the line.

Any update on how well the tamper works with the Vivaldi? I've got an A53 on the way and am looking to pick one up.


Edit: I decided to order the 53.3mm version and it's slightly looser than I'd like. There's always some grounds on the walls of the basket. I've ordered a 53.5mm tamper from Eazytamp which I'm expecting to fit perfectly.
