techkathy The bottomless portafilter does not come with a filter basket. It must be ordered separately.

A A Oscar,
The Expobar Bottomless Portafilter will only fit the Expobar. As far as I know right now, there is no bottomless portafilter for the Breville.

OSSIE Thanks for answer my question, actually there is one for Breville, they call it 58mm Naked Portafilter, but it's out of stock.

How thick are the two tabs/wings on the portafilter? I have an E61 machine, but the tabs are only 5mm thick on mine where most E61's are 7mm thick. I can't turn the filter in the group head when they're 7mm thick. Thanks!

techkathy We measured the tabs on a couple of the Expobar bottomless portafilters. The tabs are 6.5 mm at their thickest point.

Love this bottomless portafilter, using it on a Office Lever and the results are fantastic. Really helps troubleshooting your technique when you can see what is happening throughout the extraction

Would this work in a Rancilio Silvia V3?

mjackson ♦ Yes it will work, we also sell the Rancilio bottomless portafilter if you would like that instead. Give us a call and we can get either. Look forward to your call.

Rob LeDrew The reason I asked is that I already have this one and tried using it 3 times on my Rancilio Silvia V3 and each time it shot hot water out the sides of the portafilter in addition to it coming out the bottom as expected. I wanted to verify whether it was my technique or the portafilter. I even tried putting it on very tight, with only marginally better results. It still sprays a lot of hot water out the sides. I do not have this problem with the stock Rancilio portafilter.

Rob LeDrew If it helps, I am using the stock Rancilio double basket.

Hi, I think this is the correct size to fit my Gaggia "Coffee" espresso machine. (It's not the Classic or the Baby -- purchased it around 2004 or 05 I think.) I think it's a 58mm portafilter -- is that enough to ensure compatibility?
