The Little Guy "guys" have come up with a cleverly designed Tamping Mat as part of the whole Little Guy range. It is the perfect surface for resting your group handle during tamping - durable yet gentle. Its well thought-out design 'hangs' over the edge of your work surface giving a secure platform for tamping (no slippage). The tactile surface area protects bench tops, and offers a necessary traction when tamping. It also consolidates any spilled coffee grounds for ease of cleaning. Also pay special attention to the smooth edge - the seamless front makes for easy cleaning and greater durability.
