Tamping is all about achieving an even extraction

The Importance of Tamping
Correct tamping ensure an even flow of water through the coffee and even extractions are extremely important when you are looking to extract the best flavour from your coffee

There are two important factors that make tamping good or bad: Levelness and Pressure. The more level you tamp the more even the water is forced through the coffee. Uneven tamping results in more pressure on one side causing uneven extractions. 

There is a big debate on how much pressure to use for tamping, some people will measure it on a scale and express the pressure in pounds. What we can all agree on is that an even consistent pressure is very important. There has to be enough pressure though to ensure that the puck of coffee is completely compressed and solid
