What about Tamping Profiles on my PUQ GEN-5?2023-02-24T13:35:14+01:00

GEN-5 comes with improved tamping profiles to consitently improve the control over your flow rate.

There are 5 different tamping profiles, all explained below.
Q2 has all five of them. Mini and Q1 have P0, P1 and P4.

Hold the clean button 3 seconds. You can scroll up and down with + and –

Designed to speed up the work flow – 1.3 seconds – 1st tamp with force, 2nd tamp to polish. The original PUQpress Tamp.

Designed to optimize extraction with a big diameter tamper and competition baskets. PRECISION prevents suction between the tamper and the filter basket, by moving the tamper slowly in the upwards direction –  2.1 seconds – 1st tamp with force, 2nd tamp to polish.

Designed for an extra soft tamp. Has a range of 5kg to 15kg  – 2.5 seconds – 1st tamp with force, 2nd tamp to polish.

Designed to achieve a longer extraction time while using the same dose & grind coarsness. For short shots that are used in Flat Whites for example. – 2.5 seconds – 1st tamp with force, 2nd tamp with force, 3rd tamp to polish

Can I change the tamper of my PUQpress for another diameter after purchasing it?2020-10-26T14:38:23+01:00

Yes you can, it only takes 30 seconds.
Watch how to do that here.

If you want to change a tamper smaller than 56mm to a tamper larger than 56mm or vice versa,  your upper clamp needs to be changed as well. In that case please contact your local dealer for support.
