Sage 54mm Naked/Bottomless Portafilter (for 54mm Sage Machine incl. Duo Temp Pro)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

For anyone interested, I'm selling a new 54mm Sage Bottomless Portafilter, ordered from Sage and hand machined for £46.50.

 

These have a unique group fitting, only for use on Sage and Breville 54mm coffee machines like the Duo Temp Pro. I believe it's also compatible with these machines... BES810, BES840, BES860 and BES870. Please check compatibility with your machine though.

 

A friend of mine with a Sage Duo Temp Pro expressed a lot of interest in having a bottomless portafilter like the one I was using on my Rocket. Without thinking I sung the praises of bottomless portafilters... They're great for figuring out how to make fantastic shots, diagnosing shot issues and the coffee only ever touches your basket and your cup. Once you've got your shot dialled in, there's less cleaning and dripping over your worktop, and of course... it's a unique and enjoyable way to make coffee.

 

However, the small flaw in my sales pitch came about when he mentioned that he'd looked everywhere and Sage and Breville only sell a bottomless portafilter for their top of the range 58mm machines, and the only way to get a bottomless portafilter for the unique 54mm group head was to buy a custom made one or make one yourself...

 

So weeks later, and more conversations about bottomless portafilters, I decided to surprise him and order a new portafilter from Sage, and machine it myself as I fortunately have all of the metalworking tools required. He was blown away with the result, so mission successful, and he suggested that I sell these online as there are probably others like him. So here we are!

What makes your naked portafilters worth ~£40 more than the ones @joey24dirt does at face value. Even at £39 for pf for the sage an extra £46 for machining and delivery seems abit excessive. I don't know much about the machining of these pfs but I don't think it costs £46 to machine these down.

You are correct Rakesh. I completely neglected to check the forums before selling what I thought was a hard to find item to make back the cost of surprising a friend. @joey24dirt is doing something extremely generous with expensive equipment that isn't readily available for most people, and I would have greatly appreciated a few minutes to rectify my mistake before you posted publicly on my listing.

I just offered a bit of a middle man thing to save on postage costs for those who wanted one.

It would be a nice thing to have. I think i would rather modify my own and keep costs down. Unfortunately the Makino 5 axis cnc machines i operate are not tooled up to hold a portafilter. ;)

Nice one. Do you hold it in a pillar drill or milling machine to do the cutting? I dont have access to one of those either. Is the hole cutter reasonably priced?
