Tamping Mat and Stand
A tamping mat and stand are essential must-have accessories for every barista. It is used to balance the portafilter while tamping the coffee ground.
Keep your workstation clean with a tamping mat!
The most important factor to tamp is to enhance the extraction of aroma from the coffee by the water. With a loose coffee powder, you’ll get a flavored espresso that isn’t even close to being called espresso. Silicon rubber mats will protect both the countertop and the espresso portafilter spout.
A corner coffee tamper mat is fixed in place up against the corner of the table and won’t move when tamping.
So, choose the size according to the portafilter. You can also pick the tamper seat to place the tamper after every use or get the mat that includes the seat also!
