Espressocraft.com — 'Designed by Baristi for Baristi'


Ken Nye — no relation that I know of to Bill Nye the science guy — has just started a new espresso accessories venture.

His flagship product (above) is Espressocraft's tamper: 16 ounces — 1 pound — of highly polished American stainless steel, much heavier than most professional versions.

Nice paperweight even if you're a tea drinker.

Nye is the proprietor of Ninth Street Espresso in New York City's East Village.


There he's acquired a national reputation for expertly prepared espresso drinks.
