    Mods for Breville Ikon?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi, Ive been asked an interesting question and now Ive decided to post it here..

    Has anyone considered making or getting a better shower for the Breville Ikon?

    Has anyone looked at this? Or done any mods to the Breville Ikon?

    Thanks

    Hi. I presume you are referring to the naked portafilta? The only ones Ive seen on the net are ones that people have made themselves.. Saw/grinder + Breville Portafilta = Naked Portfilta?

    You looking at any other mods to the Ikon?

    Dont think you can Alan, Coffee Parts have a large range but nothing listed for Breville. Might have to find an old one and modify it. :)

    The shower /distribution works well enough in the overall design. It doesnt really stop good shots coming out.

    The portafilter chop helps to fine tune dosing/shot and is worth doing (easy with basic tools).

    Really mucking around with this one isnt going to ever turn it into a beast (Looking inside confirms this). Better off getting what you can out of it and then when its not fit for purpose and you have the money to act, go get something that is. ;)

    The two best mods for the Ikon, IMO, are the non-pressurised basket and the bottomless filter handle.

    With these it makes pretty good coffee.

    I suspect that most further upgrades would be in the area of "over-capitalisation".
