The Handle

Zebrano (Microberlinia bisculata) belongs to the carob tree genus and grows up to 40 metres tall. It has a light-coloured wood interspersed with narrow dark brown to almost black stripes, reminiscent of a zebra pattern.

Zebrawood is hard and brittle, and is used in interior finishing for cars, furniture making and for wood turning.

Its unique grain is just one reason for its popularity.

The Base

The BigStep refers to the design of the larger diameter 'stepped edge' measuring in at 58.55mm (+/-0.02mm).

This increases the surface area of extractable coffee to be covered, including the prevention of a pinched edge of coffee grind that can occur when using such a large (or incorrectly) sized base. Mainly designed for ridgeless precision baskets ( Example,Pullman Filtration, VST, IMS and Strada, Synesso and some LM baskets  ).  If unsure please contact us with the details or a photograph of your basket and we can confirm if it will work with the bigstep base.

This base is made from an extremely high strength (min 43 Rockwell) 440C Grade Stainless steel in Australia from premium grade materials. This design produces incredible results for extraction in all applications.

As Pullman cannot control the large spectrum of different internal diameters across many brands and weight ratings of precision filter baskets, please note that the BigStep base may not fit in some production batches. 
We strongly suggest purchasing Pullman Filtration Baskets, which are fitted to the BigStep Base, and are each manually checked for consistency. 

Complete Your Pullman System

We highly recommend the entire Pullman system that consists of this tamper + Pullman Filtration Baskets and The Pullman Chisel.

Why the Pullman System?

The Pullman System effectively covers; 

  • Tamping
  • Distribution
  • Filtration

These are the essential variables between the grinder and the machine - Ensuring the best possible extraction each time.
