    Sunbeam EM4300 - non-original Group Head

    Hi,

    Would a non-Sunbeam 58mm group head fit the EM4300 ?

    Thanks!

    Group head.

    I am trying to decide on whether to buy a non-pressurised basket for the existing head, or buy a heavier group head + a non-pressurised basket instead.

    Thanks again.

    I think you mean a portafilter. The basket goes into the portafilter which is then tightened into the grouphead.

    That's the stock portafilter, baskets, and tamper for the EM4300.

    If you do mean group head, anything is possible but nothing will be easy or bolt on.

    Sorry, you're right. It's the portafilter that I am considering of replacing.
