What portafilter replacement for Gaggia Classic?

Recommended Posts

Mine is looking a bit weathered from 10 years of use, want something with a better handle. What do you guys recommend?


Would like one with a double sprout over bottomless (already have one), angled too.

A Gaggia standard portafilter would fit & has the commercial type handle too.

There are most likely other ones which will fit too but gaggia have the lugs in a different position to a standard E61 group which will cut down your choices a bit.

Laissez les bons temps rouler

The angle on the lugs can be different and some are thicker / thinner. This can cause the PF to lock in a different position OR not lock in securely.


Check before you buy that it is the correct one.
