Your coffee station deserves the best, this tamping mat from Profitec includes a vertical fold so it wraps around your kitchen worktops beautifully. The raised lip helps to contain coffee ground, and the black matte finish looks great next to any espresso machine.

Black Matte Finish

Coffee equipment can take up a lot of space, especially once you've got the espresso machine and coffee grinder set up of your dreams. We think it's important that your machine, grinder and all your accessories look great and don't become an eye-soar in your kitchen! 

Profitec's tamping matt is finished with a black matte effect, giving a modern industrial edge to your coffee bar. 

Vertical Fold

While it's important that your tamp mat looks great, it does have a job to do! With it's 90° vertical fold, Profitec's tamping protects your work surface from every angle so you're free to tamp with as much (or as little) pressure as you want.

Raised Edge

As all coffee connoisseurs know, ground get everywhere. Profitec's tamping mat features a solid ledge, designed to stop those coffee grounds spilling into your kitchen.


The mat is made from high resistance rubber, ensuring it can withstand high temperatures and stays firmly in one place.

The Profitec GO is the best single boiler espresso machine we've come across, but if you really want to upgrade your home set up you need to get kitted out. The tamp mat makes puck preparation quicker and cleaner, ensuring you don't damage your worktops while your tamp your coffee. The Profitec mat features a lip so it bends neatly around your surface.

What is a tamp mat?

A tamp mat is a specialised accessory used in espresso preparation, providing a stable and clean surface for tamping coffee grounds in the portafilter, ensuring even compression and consistent extraction.

Do you need a tamp mat to make espresso?

No, a tamp mat is not strictly necessary to make espresso, but it can be a helpful accessory to provide stability, cleanliness, and support during the tamping process.

What accessories do you need to make espresso?

To make espresso, you'll typically need the following accessories:

  1. Espresso Machine: The core equipment for brewing espresso, available in various types including manual, semi-automatic, and automatic machines. We recommend the Profitec GO for home use.

  2. Coffee Grinder: Essential for grinding fresh coffee beans to the fine consistency required for espresso. If you're just getting started, it's worth spending time researching the best grinder for you, we recommend the Core All Grind Plus.

  3. Portafilter: A metal filter basket that holds the coffee grounds during brewing; it attaches to the espresso machine. Typically, this will be sold along with your espresso machine.

  4. Tamper: Used to evenly compress the coffee grounds in the portafilter, crucial for proper extraction. Typically, this will be sold along with your espresso machine.

  5. Scales: Ensures precise measurement of coffee grounds for accurate dosing. While this is not essential, it is recommended while you are learning how to dial in your machine.

  6. Timer: Helps monitor the espresso extraction time, a key factor in achieving the desired flavour. You can use the stopwatch on your watch or smartphone. 

Optional accessories may include a distribution tool (to evenly distribute coffee grounds), and a milk frother or steamer for making milk-based espresso drinks like lattes or cappuccinos.

    Great Quality Tamping Mat.

    The tamping mat is a perfect size for the job and is top quality. Storage is great too on my machine, I hang it off the water tank so it’s hidden away behind the machine.

    Thanks so much Peter! We're huge Profitec fans over here!
