Cafelat Convertible Portafilter for La Marzocco Naked Double Spout $90
Have used this portafilter as a naked portafilter a handful of times but split my shots more often than not and also have a wooden naked portafilter hence the sale. Have never attached the regular spout. Comes in box with its usual parts etc.
Pickup in brisbane preferred but can post at cost to buyer.
Hey there, pretty new to the coffee world but I'm assuming this will not fit in a Gaggia Classic?
I spent about 30mins researching - this is an e61 size right? And the Gaggia is *not* e61? Looked but couldn't really find a sizing for the Classic and the La Marzocco to confirm.
Gaggia Classic has offset lugs on the portafilter, about 2 o'clock and 7 o'clock, while e61 has the lugs on each side at 3 and 9 o'clock relative to the handle....if this makes sense?
Thanks for the reply Timmy. So I guess my next question is will it still work and just end up with the handle facing out at an angle?
It should still fit, but would most likely rest at 4 o'clock
Would have no effect on extraction.
It may get in the way of the steam wand (on the right?). Otherwise would work as expected.
Carefull....they don't always fit "well"! Lug size and depth can be a little different. I have a Gaggia portafilter with a pressure gauge on it that I use for OPV setting and although it *can* fit on an e61 group head (And I've used it successfully) I wouldn't want to use it daily. You may need to accept the risk that it might be a little bit off, or may not lock in firmly due to lug length or depth preventing good rotation.
Mines a LM model so probably not the best fit on a E61 machine. Price drop to $80
These are great quality and so versatile, can highly recommend.
Pretty sure the list a different/seperate one for simonelli also. Or i might be interested. Glws
Good luck with sale.
Brilliant portafilters. Love the flexibility to quickly and easily swap from double spouted to bottomless. Stainless.
Yes, they have a different lug sizing for Nuova Simonelli and other manufacturers.
Tempted to offer to buy to have one on hand for LM.
