╔ About the Essentia Tatami Hybrid Mattress ╗
Essentia is a Canada-based mattress manufacturer that offers latex mattresses made from natural and organic materials. The brand currently sells seven individual models, all of which share the same thickness profile of 8″. Furthermore, all Essentia mattresses include organic-cotton covers and Dunlop latex support cores; they differ in terms of comfort layers and firmness settings.
The Essentia Tatami hybrid is a 9.5” hybrid mattress.
The removable cover is made from organic cotton and kevlar.
The comfort layer is 1.5” of natural memory foam
Over .5” of natural latex foam.
The support core is 8” of recycled-steel coils, with a one-half inch cotton padding base.
The Essentia Tatami comes in one firmness option — a 6.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, making it a medium-firm mattress.
The natural memory foam is dense, so it feels pretty firm upon first touch. But as you rest upon the mattress, the foam warms and softens and you will sink into it. The memory foam is very conforming and it will hug your body’s contours.
The Tatami Hybrid is a very responsive mattress. The 8 inches of recycled steel coils and half-inch latex give the bed a quick bounce-back. The natural memory foam also seems to bounce back faster than other dense memory foams providing less of that “stuck feeling” traditional memory foam is known for.
With a zoned pocketed coil support system and a highly conforming comfort layer, the Tatami Hybrid keep sleepers’ midsections propped up while allowing shoulders and hips to sink down more. This makes for solid support across all sleeper weights.
╔ Motion Isolation╗
We felt some motion whenever we had a second person on the mattress tossing and turning. As we mentioned, this is a responsive bed and the coils and the latex make this a bouncy bed. That said, the one and a half inches of memory foam did absorb some motion preventing it from being too disruptive.
Hybrid beds are known for having good edge support, and the Tatami hybrid is no different.
There is some sinkage while sitting along the edge of the bed and even some while lying close to the edge. But the comfort layers are only 2 inches thick, so after that initial sink you will be immediately propped up by the 8 inches of recycled steel coils.
Our testing found that the Tatami Hybrid offers adequate pressure relief across all sleeper types and weights.
Though this bed features memory foam in the comfort layer, which is known to trap heat, we found the Tatami Hybrid stayed fairly cool throughout the night.
And the 8 inches of coils allow for a lot of airflow to keep the foam and mattress at a cool, even temperature.

Essentia Health is an integrated healthcare system with facilities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Idaho. As of 2014 it has over 12,000 employees, including 1,500 physicians and credentialed practitioners. The network includes 17 hospitals, 66 clinics, eight long-term care facilities, two assisted living facilities, four independent living facilities, and one research institute. Essentia was accredited as an Accountable Care Organization by the National Committee for Quality Assurance in 2013.
Essentia Health was formed in 2004, as the parent company of the partnership between the Benedictine Health System and St. Mary’s/Duluth Clinic Health System (SMDC). Essentia Health acquired Dakota Clinic/Innovis Health in January 2008. In 2010, Essentia Health integrated the resources of all of its member organizations – SMDC Health System, Innovis Health, Brainerd Lakes Health, Essentia Community Hospitals and Clinics, and Essentia Institute of Rural Health – and united them under the one name, Essentia Health.
Essentia Health has more than two dozen Catholic-sponsored clinics, hospitals, and other facilities. The roots of Essentia’s Catholic facilities trace back to a group of Benedictine nuns who established St. Mary’s Hospital, Essentia Health’s oldest hospital, in Duluth in 1888.
