Product Detail

Most commercial semi-automatics require backflushing on a daily basis to get rid of coffee residue and build-up that can change the taste of your espresso. This stainless steel disc is for use on machines with a 3-way solenoid valve. Simply place it in your portafilter along with backflush cleaner, and begin the process that should be detailed in your machine’s manual.

What size is this?

Does this fit a Gaggia Classic portafilter?

Maggie aswered:
It will-however, Gaggia does not recommend that any of their home units (other than the Gaggia TS) be back-flushed.  Descaling is the only recommended maintenance for those machines.

Question by silvana v.

Hi, what damage can be done to a gaggia classic while backflushing?

Answer on our Community →
mjackson aswered:
It is not really recommended for all Gaggias only those with a three way solenoid. If you don't have one don't do this. If you have any of the Baby series or the classic you can. If you do not do the back flushing correctly you can basically ruin your machine by damaging the water connections ...

Question by George P.

Will this work on an Expobar Office Lever? The rubber disk that came with the machine seems to have shrunk over time and it is difficult to get the pressure up enough to do a good back flush.

mjackson aswered:
This will work very well and I prefer the steel to the rubber for just the point you made it will be more durable.

Question by David D.

Will the stainless steel blind filter basket (for backflush) work on my Pasquini Livia 90 espresso machine?

Answer on our Community →
A aswered:
David, That backflush disk will not work for the Livietta, as they are 58mm while the Livietta has a 57mm portafilter. You best source for information on the backflush disk for the Livietta would be our tech department, which can be reached at 1-888-411-5282 option 3.
