If you hate the feel of the current VBM rubberised portafilter handle like I do, there's a well priced replacement available from site sponsor Coffee Parts.

No more coffee grinds stuck to the rubberized handle making it feel like you're holding sandpaper. The replacement plastic handle is the same shape with lightly textured non-slip surface and much better feel in my opinion. I've just ordered a 2nd one after trying it.

In their recent CS post, Coffee Parts have listed 10% off by using the code CPCS in the promotion box at check-out.
