Modify My Portafilter to Bottomless
- Product description
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? Well with a bottomless 58mm portafilter the user knows right away and can troubleshoot shot from the get go.
Well, send it to us and we will do the modification and send it back to you within 72 hours! How's that for service? 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.
We do not modify stainless steel portafilters!
If you're up to the task, send the portafilter (58mm only) to Espresso Parts 4315 Lacey Blvd SE, Lacey WA 98503
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:áDue 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.

- Nice Option Review by Ira
Espresso aint cheap. This is a nice option to repurpose that single portafilter (who uses that thing anyway?) at a reasonable price. I put my VST 18 gram basket in my new bottomless portafilter and the blind basket in my double and we're good to go.
Cons: My repurposed Rocket portafilter doesn't sit flat when tamping unless I tamp with the handle hanging off the edge of the tamping surface...not a big deal, but maybe one designed as a bottomless portafilter would not have the same issue?

- Great Job, sub-par communication Review by Jacy
I am very happy with the modification to my portafilter. The edges are smooth and it is very well done. However, I was less than satisfied with the level of service provided throughout the process. I would appreciate if an email with a tracking label and shipping instructions were sent after the order was completed (even if it cost a little more - it cost me $11 to ship). It would be clearer and more convenient.
After shipping my portafilter, I received no notification that it had been received or when I should expect to get it back. After contacting Espresso Parts, they told me it would be cut and shipped on Friday, After not receiving any notification by the following Tuesday, I contacted them again and was told it would be cut and shipped that day. It was, and I received it the Monday after that - 15 days after I shipped it to them.
To recap, I am very happy with the final result, but I would like clearer instructions, more communication, and faster turnaround.
