Product Details
Overview:
Bottomless Portafilter for Faema, Rancilio Silvia, Wega, ECM, Isomac, Rocket Espresso (pre 2012 models), Vibiemme,and most Faema E61 Groupheads with all chrome plating and true 3 cup basket. Will also fit the Isomac with 58mm portafilter, Elektra Sixites and Semiautomatica models, and Ascaso with 58mm portafilter.

In addition, our bottomless portafilters have true size three cup filter baskets unlike any other.
Notes:
  1. Please note that our portafilters are made naked first, then they are chrome plated for a full beautiful finish. We are not responsible if the manufacturer of your espresso machine has made a change to your espresso machine and the portafilter does not fit.
  2. Our new stock no longer includes the end cap at the end of the handle.
  3. Just because this item comes with a 3 cup basket does not mean you must pull 3 shots every time you use it. You may also pull a single or double shot for more crema and a concentrated flavor profile, but you still MUST fill the basket as intended. Alternatively, you may use this handle with a 58mm one or two cup basket.
  4. In many cases, when using this portafilter, customers have to coarsen the fineness of the grind when moving from a single or double dose portafilter or filter basket. The reason is that the bottomless/naked portafilter usually holds more coffee in the basket, and when leaving the same fineness of grind, the end result is no pour, a very slow pour, or leakage around the grouphead area. this is why we recommend changing the fineness of the grind to a little more coarse.

"Fits perfect in the VBM domobar"

Review: Fit and finish is nice. Not quite as heavy duty as the stock VBM portafilters, but doesn't feel flimsy either. Good for dialing in your shots (you can see all of your mistakes in their full glory). No complaints at this price point. 1st line shipped promptly as always.

Review: I have a Rancilio Sylvia. This bottomless portafilter works as advertised, although I have to use slightly higher force to lock it in so that it seals completely. My factory double shot basket that came with my machine won't work with this unit. Can't get it to seal tightly. I have varied the grind and varied the force used to lock it in but nothing seems to work. That's fine though, as I use the bottomless unit for pulling doubles and the factory portafilter for pulling separate shots. Construc... More details

Review: I use this on my Nuova Era Cuadra II and it works as advertised. Fits my baskets great, and I opted to remove the spring so I could load my basket on a scale, then easily pop it in and out. Heats up quickly, has a nice, reassuring weight, and seems to be robust enough to stand the test of time.
