    Does anyone know if the Breville BES800 Portafilter fits the Ikon BES400?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Hi CSrs,

    Has anyone tried the Breville BES800 Portafilter on the the Ikon BES400 group head, it seams to fit but may need a new group seal or spacer.

    Perhaps someone has done the swap and tested under pressure (there was a limit with what I could get away with in the shop).

    I tried a search with 0 result.

    Kind Regards
    Lindsay

    This is exciting new knowledge for me ( Coffee Slob posing as Coffee Snob ).

    Hey CSrs anyone got an unwanted BES800 thing that were talking about but cant type?
    Even a dirty old broken one without its original box!

    I edited that post, does that mean anything now probably not much?
    As to meaning well...
    It either means that I stutter, block copy tremble, dont read what I type and one finger doesnt know what the other finger is thinking or Im Irish.
    You choose?

    I think it must be something to do with a programming thing that is picked up when you type a certain string.

    I remember Andy set one up when someone recently was trying to pump a certain brand of coffee.

    Made it change to "boring, stupid plug" or something. It was quite funny ;D

    But what does (group handle (group handle (portafilter in the USA) in the USA) mean
    It refers to the fact that some of the world refers to the bit what holds your coffee as the group handle and some of the world call it the PF or porta filter.

    Certain words in posts get things done to them behind the scenes.
    Like beanbay, a sponsors name like Coffee Parts and in this case, group handle or porta filter (something triggers it) ;-)

    And of course, links to a certain auction site.

    Oh, and it gets worse if you modify your post too! Especially if the quoted text had the phrase in it. See above above above.

    Its like Homer and having Brain damage amage amage amage.
