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.

Inside the package:
Military-spec Type III hard anodised aluminium. 304 stainless steel flat base. 58.40mm diameter for VST baskets.
Designed for every budget without compromise thanks to more efficient manufacturing and less materials.
Damage the base? It happens. Swap it out for HK$120 instead of buying another expensive paperweight.
Double flange eliminates the vacuum effect and helps keep you vertical. Light weight (250g) makes regular tampers feel like an axe; and you just upgraded to a scalpel.
Human-friendly shape for most hands and styles. Rock hard yet textured surface for optimal grip. Black for stealthiness and tactical operations.
The drop knockbox was designed for busy coffee bars. The knockbox sits in the countertop and allows the used coffee pucks to drop through to a rubbish bin inside the counter. This knockbox is pretty much a Classic Knockbox with the lower half removed but is still sturdy and built like a tank.
The rubber components of this product minimise noise - there is nothing worse than the clanky noise that emits from those cheap aluminium catering inserts converted to knockboxes.
The raised back prevents backsplash, if you have watery pucks and need one of those enormous back splashes that clips onto a knockbox you may need to evaluate your grind and dosing ritual :)
To install you need a 16cm diammeter hole cut out in your table top.
Apart from the lower gasket, all parts are the same as the Classic Knockbox and replacement parts are available.
