    Re-wrote this as I looked like a lemon in the original I bought a bottomless portafilter to assist with my coffee making....... and an IMS Competition 16g basket. The first thing I noted was that the IMS basket is a lot deeper than the 16g one that was in my original filter. When pulling a...

    Bit of a long shot, can anyone give me the dimensions of the portafilter holder assembly from a Mythos One? I've ordered a Daniel Wong doserless kit for my Mazzer Major and had the idea of making a portafilter holder for it. I was going to just make the hook bit for it but after chatting...

It's not causing a problem yet but I feel if it does ever come out with, what should be, 9 bar of pressure behind it, it would cause a lot of damage to anything...

  12. ACS Forum
    Am really enjoying experimenting with my recently acquired Vesuvius from @dan1502. Question is, where can I source an ACS bottomless portafiller for my machine? The old one I had for my Classic has the lugs located at a different angle and isn't easily usable (not to mention destroying the...

    Hi guys and gals, I have just upgraded from a Francis Francis X1 to an Expobar G10 compact (which makes my X1 look like it belongs in a dolls house!). I got a bit of a bargain on eBay and the machine works great, and seems to be well matched to my Mahlkonig / Baratza Vario, but the...

    Hello folks, Quick question - when I remove the portafilter having poured a shot on my Gaggia Gran Prestige, there's a lot of pressurised hot water which spurts out as I release it from the machine, which causes coffee grind and water to spurt all over the machine and surrounding areas. I'm...
