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.

Cafelat's latest Knockbox, it called "Home Knockbox"
The knock bar is 1 solid one piece design, much more substantial than before and without plugs that come out.
The design has been registered!
The home knockbox may be small but it can comfortably hold 10 double pucks of coffee before it needs emptying. To empty just lift the rubber bar out and discard the coffee as you wish. A silicon ring on the bottom prevents it moving about the place and also helps to reduce the noise.
To wash we recommend you just give it a rinse in mild detergent. The plastic tub is dishwasher safe but we are not sure you need to go that far as a mild rinse works every time.
Material: ABS plastic, silicone, rubber and stainless steel.
