Okay, so you have an extra 58mm portafilter and you want to go bottomless, a great idea. It will without a doubt improve your espresso shot consistency and quality. How you might ask? With a bottomless portafilter the user knows right away if something is "off" (it can get messy), and can adjust grind settings and tamping method to correct any issues. Years ago some Barista's from Zoka Coffee in Seattle were playing around with an idea, and thus the creation of the Bottomless Portafilter! Before that according to espresso legend a bottomless portafilter was created at ESI/La Marzocco to find out what was happening with the filter basket at extraction.
Feel free to send us your new or used portafilter and we will do the modification and send it back to you within 72 hours after we receive it!
Hang on, how does this all work?
First, you must place your order by adding this item to your cart. Then, send the portafilter, 58mm only, with no basket or spring, to Espresso Parts 4315 Lacey Blvd SE, Lacey WA 98503. (Sorry, we cannot/do not modify stainless steel portafilters!) Include in the package a copy of the order confirmation you receive in your email inbox. You may also want to reference your order number on the shipping label or write it on the outside of the package. The sooner you ship it to us, the sooner we can get it back to you!
Please insure your item and if sent via the postal service please use delivery confirmation. We will ship your portafilter back via Fed Ex. When you order you will be charged your freight costs upfront.
Note: Due to the fact that this is a modification to a manufactured part, there may be some minor scuffing of the interior sides of the portafilter. This is cosmetic only and will not effect the function. No external scuffing occurs during the process.
