Question by James K.

Hello, I am using the Gaggia Portafilter w/Chrome Double-Spout on my older Gaggia (Baby mod.77). I received the portafilter today 26Aug2013 and tried it one time with the included pressure filter basket and diffuser. The results were not acceptable as the crema was overly bubbly with much larger...

Thank you for trying the pressure filter basket and diffuser. You confirmed my suspicion. I never tried mine as I figured it was a gimmick.
DanielCulver aswered:
Not knowing all the circumstances of your machine, switching to the pressure filter if your shower screen is a little plugged will give these same poor results. Just a thought on something to check first. In my experience using Gaggia pressure filters on 3 different machine, they give very fine...
James aswered:
Hello, Screen is clean per usual routine maintenance; Adequate tamp pressure and proper grind works great without restrictive inserts to create crema/acceptable espresso which can be required on some machines with inadequate pump pressure. Didn't need a pressure diffuser but did need proper sized...

Greetings, I own a Gaggia Carezza and i've noticed that my portafilter (Portafilter with dual plastic spouts , #8301005000) is leaking - probably because the plastic has one nice crack... After reading all the Q&A here, i assume that i can purchase the metal-one and it will fit my Carezza (i...

You can just get a spout to replace the cracked plastic if you like, or we have metal ones as well. The nice thing about that particular portafilter is that you can use either one! Please call us at 1-888-411-5282, option 3, and we will be happy to assist you.

Question by Mark S.

Just bought this to replace the original on my 5 year old Classic; the handle on the original cracked. The new portafilter is a bit different: the basket only has holes in the central area and has a small plastic insert under it that fits in the spout. The original had holes across the entire...

DanielCulver aswered:
What you have now is a pressure filter basket. The plastic diffuser insert should be used at all times with pressure filters. If you fail to use the diffuser, the hot coffee or cleaning liquid will shoot straight out the sides of the double down spout making a mess on any nearby objects or walls....
DanielCulver aswered:
Sorry MArk, I just remembered to add that you can order a replacement handle for your old portafilter from Whole Latte Love. If they don't have it for you, they can send you in the right direction, but I believe this is the one you are looking for;...

Question by Nancy E.

I need to replace my portafilter to my gaggia classic. I think the original is stainless; however, I can only find replacement in Chrome. Do you think the original is Chrome? Does it matter?

Answer on our Community →
DanielCulver aswered:
The original probably was chrome plated brass like all the Gaggia portafilters I've ever seen. They are very well made and should give many years of good service. If you have pealing or flaking chrome around the lugs just sand smooth. Compared to stainless steel, chrome or brass is far less...
