Wega Bottomless Portafilter With Walnut Wood Handle (After-Market)
This aftermarket bottomless or naked portafilter features a La Marzocco style walnut wood handle and will fit most Ascaso, Bianchi, BFC, Elektra, Fiorenzato CS, Isomac, MCE, Orchestrale, Quick Mill, Scala, SVC Italia, Wega and other E61 machines (fins 6.4mm). Make sure that you measure the fins on your current portafilter to confirm fit.
Taste the difference a portafilter can make. The Barista can watch the coffee brew right from the bottom of the filter basket and immediately know if channeling occurs, signaling that a level tamp was not made, which makes this an invaluable tool for training. Most Bottomless Portafilters will accept 21 gram triple baskets since portafilter body depth is no longer an issue. This item comes standard with a 58mm 21 gram triple basket, but will also accept any other "standard" sized portafilter basket.
