1. BARISTA HUSTLE PRECISION MILK JUG
Tough enough to withstand countless slams on the bar and meticulously engineered to pour symmetrical latte art every single time. Surprisingly, perfect spout and handle alignment is not a high-priority of milk jug manufacturers. Motivated to find just one precise pitcher that met Matt’s Perger's standard for competitions, The Pitcher was born. the Barista Hustle pitcher is meticulously aligned in all directions down to the millimeter. At the same time, we beefed up durability to withstand constant use behind bar.
2. BARISTA HUSTLE TAMPER
Lightweight to minimize fatigue, a tight portafilter fit without causing suction, and because drops are bound to happen, a replaceable base. The most repetitive motion behind bar deserves better. The Tamper’s 58.4mm diameter fits a VST basket exactly while the unique double flange not only eliminates the frustrating vacuum effect but also helps keep you vertical. Made with military-spec type III hard anodized aluminium with a 304 stainless steel flat base, the Barista Hustle Tamper is durable but lightweight to minimize fatigue. And because a tamper’s lifespan is bound to include a few run-ins with the floor, the base is easily and affordably replaceable.
