Every espresso machine, whether manual, automatic or semi-automatic, must have a portafilter. It is considered the most important part of the machine. However, a portafilter will not guarantee perfect results if one does not know how to use it.

Coffee beans or grounds must be prepared properly as well as tamping the ground coffee to achieve a perfectly made coffee. The portafilter is simply a part of the coffee machine that holds the coffee grounds during the brewing process. A working portafilter is, therefore, a must-have component in every coffee brewing process.

Espresso Machine Portafilter

Espresso Machine PortafilterThe portafilter is comprised of few parts including a handle which allows easy handling of the unit by the brewer. A filter basket, usually made of metal and has several tiny perforations at the bottom that allow the water containing the extracted espresso to filter through.

The tension spring is another crucial part that holds the filter basket in place during the brewing process. The portafilter also has a spout which is a hole with a chute found at the bottom, through which the brewed espresso drains into a waiting coffee mug or cup below it.

The most important part of brewing a good coffee is knowing how to use your coffee portafilter and other barista tools correctly. If you're interested in making a great espresso for yourself, your guests, or for sale to customers at a café, there are a few basics you need to learn. These include two steps, one which is done before adding the ground coffee into the filter while the other is performed after adding the ground coffee.

The first step is learning how to grind the coffee beans to a correct consistency. It's a skill mastered through practice although it can be aided by the use of a suitable grinder. Ground coffee that is too rough or too fine results in an espresso that has not attained the correct exposure to the brewing process.

The second step is learning how to tamp/compress the ground coffee correctly using a coffee tamper in the portafilter. Tamping your coffee ground too tight or too loose gives a sub-optimal espresso.

Since there are different types of espresso machines, the kind of portafilter will differ based on the classification of a particular machine. We offer different types of portafilters sourced from a variety of recognized manufacturers around the world. These include pressurized, non-pressurized, bottomless or 'naked portafilters'

PortafilterNon-Pressurised Portafilters

Commonly used with many of today’s semi-automatic espresso machines. Most of the professional baristas love to use these.

Pressurised Portafilters

Common with today’s automatic espresso machines. This portafilter does the work of tamping for you unlike the non-pressurized, which you have to do the tamping yourself.

Naked Portafilters

For perfectionists trying to see whether the water is being pushed through the coffee in an even manner. Because naked portafilters don't have a spout it makes viewing this much easier and is a good way to refine your tamping skills. 

Our Commercial Coffee Portafilter Range 

We have a variety of portafilters from reputable manufacturers ensuring our customers are spoilt for choice.

FAQ

A portafilter is used to hold the coffee while the espresso machine forces hot, pressurised water through to make espresso. Portafilters are an important part of all traditional coffee makers. Commercial portafilters are made of durable chrome, stainless steel or brass.
A bottomless portafilter is a portafilter that lacks spouts. This allows the user to observe easily the flow of coffee out of the portafilter, and identify any extraction issues.
A portafilter should contain around 7-12 grams of coffee to make one espresso, although a double basket portafilter can hold between 14 -21 grams of coffee.
A pressurised portafilter is called that as the basket it contains is double walled, with one layer of filter above another with a single hole. These portafilters are designed to increase the pressure the coffee is extracted at when brewing, hence the title: pressurised portafilter.
A portafilter works by containing the coffee tightly in an enclosed space with only one outlet at the bottom. As the espresso machine pushes boiling water through the coffee, the portafilter works to channel the extracted coffee through the spout at the bottom.
Portafilters are not necessarily interchangable between brands, as there is no consensus around the exact size and dimensions that work best. Nearly all manufacturers can provide replacement portafilters if needed.
