We have absolute black granite counters in a brushed finish, and I love them! They are absolutely not high maintenance. The matte finish and slight texture are fabulous for disguising any bits or streaks on the counter. While I do see bread crumbs easily, I'm glad to see them and just wipe them up. I don't want to be leaving them around anyhow! If you haven't seen this finish, I would highly recommend checking it out.

need my coffee- Sounds like the variation surface makes the difference for your clean up. You have a great attitude . It proves that any cleanup is purely in the eyes of the beholder, their lifestyle & the family dynamic .

p.s - another money saving tip on kitchen counters. Do NOT go for the thicker or more elaborate expensive slabs. You will never get the return.
