A tamper is used to compress ground coffee in a portafilter. This will make the brewing water pass the ground coffee more slowly. The degree of compression, taking into account grinding fineness and amount of coffee, should be selected to give 5 seconds of steeping/wetting time before the coffee starts pouring from the portafilter.
