Portafilters and Filter Baskets

The portafilter, Italian for "filter holder," is where the espresso extraction takes place. Ground coffee is tamped into the portafilter, which then locks into the group head on your espresso machine, creating a seal. We offer a wide array of single, double, and bottomless (naked) portafilters from brands like Expobar, Rancilio, and ECM.
