Product Overview

Emperador cafe is a natural stone marble that illustrates a classical romance. With a large selection of sizes and accessories to choose from, emperador cafe can easily be laid in a pattern or single layout. NOTE: Inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish, etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing.

Customer Questions & Answers

is there a big difference in color between the "dark" emperador and the "cafe" i see a big difference in price and just wondering why?

Asked by: Anonymous
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).

Customer Reviews

Emperador Cafe 3 in. x 6 in. Polished Marble Floor and Wall Tile (1 sq. ft./case) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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! : )

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, but major pain I'm giving this product 3 stars because it looks great installed, but I will not use it again. Cutting this tile was a nightmare - it would shatter off along grooves, air pockets and imperfections in the stone. I used two different wet saws and each had the same problem. I was covering a bar top in this & luckily I didn't have to cut the pieces going on top, but the edges needed 2" strips. I finally got enough cut to finish the project, but I probably wasted as much as I used. Again, the finished product looks amazing, but the amount of time and waste that went into it is enough to scare me away from this tile for all future projects.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MARBLE TILE I purchased 7 square feet on line because none of the local stores had it in stock. I was doing a small project around the house. The product arrived reasonably quickly from the New Jersey location. When I unpacked them and layed them out, I was disappointed in the quality of the cut edges. Of the 28 pieces 1/4 had edges that would distract from the finished project and 1 had a major chip in it. The color had very little to do with the image shown on line. When I checked to see the UPS cost to ship it back, it turned out to be 1/4 of the original purchase price. I've decided to keep them and put them away for some future project. Would I purchase them again? NO! I will never purchase stone tile on line again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful Purchased sixteen cases for the backsplash in my kitchen. Combined with light smoke sanded grout, it turned out absolutely beautiful. Tiles contain predominately browns and blacks with some white and red highlights. Worth every dime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STUNNING! SO Beautiful Because these are natural stone .. the pieces have a lot of variation. For a large application it wouldn't be a problem just mix them all together. I only needed 9 tiles to do a small workstation of my kitchen countertop. I hand selected the tiles from the home depot store. There were some that had more of a black-brown background and the other ones more of a chocolate Deep Sable Brown background. Those are the ones I selected. I also selected the ones with the large white veining. Some had very little white veining and some had dramatic larger streaks of white veining. The stone itself is GORGEOUS. It has a deep dark sable brown background, some appearing brown black. Also gold tones, white streaks. One tile I saw in the store had a terra cotta orange patch on it. Marble is a softer stone than granite .. maybe having it delivered over the internet isn't such a good idea. In the store I opened the sealed bundles.. to go through and hand pick the 9 tiles I wanted. Even within the sealed pack in the store I did find a chipped damaged tile. If you bought a bunch of it .. you could always return to the store (save your receipt) in case you found any damaged pieces in your cases. The pic on the monitor does not really look like the actual color of the tile in person. At least on my monitor. On my monitor it looks more black with a lots of greenish/deep taupe accents but in real life it is a rich deep sable chocolately blackish brown LOL with gold, white accents. The tile looks Better in person and I immediately fell in love with it! I needed something to tie in the whites and the beige/brown tones of my kitchen remodel and this was perfect. It had the brown but with the white streaks!
