Apart from buying a Kees van der Westen Speedster, there is no better way to brighten up your barista area than with a Cafelat Splat Mat. The mat is shaped liked a splat of espresso (or milk) and also functions as a Corner Mat as well.
The mat is much smaller than the other tamping mats and perfect for use at home.
Again made from very hard and thick, food grade odourless silicone. It has been designed to extra great protection to the counter and the baristas.
