The Cafelat corner tamping mat is our unique and innovative solution for those baristas who like to tamp with the portafilter on the edge of the table. This is an idea Paul had a few years ago, but it took our designer Karina to really transform what could have been an ordinary looking product into something that is cute and incredibly functional. The compact size is great for even the smallest barista workstations and the part that overhangs is small enough not to obscure doors or drawers that may be underneath.
When using the mat it is important to modify your technique to avoid any chance of injury, should the portafilter slip for any reason. When holding the portafilter up against the corner tamping mat, push the portafilter in towards the counter away from you. With the tamper in the other hand tamp downwards as you normally would do. This technique ensures the portafilter remains fixed.

The group gaskets are made from food grade FDA silicone. Unlike regular gaskets that are made from rubber these do not have any smell or taste whatsoever, and are easy to change since they will not bake rock hard like rubber does. If you have ever struggled to change an old gasket you cannot help but notice the awful smell and the black soot that comes off the rubber. And that is what you are potentially consuming with each drink.
Months of testing and adjusting the material are conducted so that these have the same compression strength as rubber, but are also softer so that it is easier to create a good seal.

The thickness of the gasket will determine the “lock-in” position of the portafilter handle. Ideally you want the handle to lock in directly towards you (6 o’clock position). If the gasket is too thin it will lock in too far. If the gasket is too thick it will not lock in enough.
