Why we love our CafeCountertops® solid wood countertops!

Welcome to CafeCountertops®

Green Thinking.

Create stunning kitchens and bath designs with a clear environmental conscience using CaféCountertops. Environmental and social consciousness isn’t a trend in Europe; it’s a way of life. CafeCountertops sources wood from sustainably-managed forests. Our unique ‘Euro-Star’ construction makes use of shorter lengths of lumber that would be otherwise discarded as waste (pre-indus-trial recycling). Our Hand-Rubbed Oil Finish is solvent-free, VOC2010-Compliant and EN71-3 Certified (Food- and Toy-safe).

Our kind of “green” is real and practical. We focus on waste reduction. We do not offer endangered or protected wood species. We do not offer bamboo, which is a grass suspended in a chemical resin. We offer reclaimed wood by special order, but please consider that old barns and factories are hardly food-safe environments.

COVID-19: Disinfecting your wood countertop

Please use only the correct products and practices when disinfecting your wood countertop, or you might ruin the finish.

CafeCountertops has done extensive testing to confirm what our tech experts had already advised. Firstly, your wood countertop is a lean, mean bacteria-chomping machine in its own right. The only cleaning method we can officially recommend is to wash your countertop once a week with our Gentle Wood Wash (available on Amazon). This ph-neutral soap will clean the top properly without harming the finish.

If you must use a disinfectant, we can’t guarantee you won’t harm your finish, but our testing did reveal certain best practices. Spray disinfectants such as Lysol and Microban are preferable to harsh cleaners. MODERATION is key. Lightly spray the surface, wait only the absolute minimum recommended time for disinfection (typically 30 seconds), then rinse the surface thoroughly with a damp cloth, then dry with a towel. Wait a minimum of one week between treatments.
