Answer: 
The "Empirador Cafe' " (dark chocolate color with white and redish brown streaks) is the "dark" tile, and the "light" colored tile is "Crema Cappacino" (vanilla ice cream color with slightly darker shades).

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The Emperador Dark and Emperador Café are 2 different natural stones, which have their inherent natural characteristics and therefore differences in quality and price.

The Home Depot has a Polyblend sable brown (quite dark) and a tobacco color grout, not sure which one would blend better with the tile.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No problems at all. It has that million dollar mansion appearance. I installed a whole bathroom with this tile, shower walls and bathroom floor. One cracked tile separated as it was being cut with a wet-saw. Cut with wet-saw only. The store replace the broken tile with a good one. I am an amature at tile work and this product installed with great pleasure. I used "Sure-Bond Unsanded Thin-Set Mortar Mix" and "Thin-Set Mortar Admix" (a white milky liquid) NO WATER WITH THIS MIX. Enjoy your project! : ) May 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing value, but lots of variation in color! Just bought this tile in store to redo my bathroom floor. It hasn't been installed yet, but the stone looks wonderful and higher class than porcelain or ceramic tiles. A big catch, however, is that you need to be very selective choosing the tiles because there is a lot of variation in shades. Some are really dark brown, some really light brown verging on gray, some with red marbling, some with almost no marbling, etc. So it's an amazing value, just be prepared to dig through the cases finding matching tiles!
