Subject: Bottomless Portafilter for Kitchenaid Espresso Machine
 

We have just purchased one of these espresso machines. Great lover of coffee but new to replicating great espresso's at home. We are, at this stage, a little unsure of the Kitchenaid and are struggling a little with producing a great crema. Experimentation continues with grind and tamping technique!

I am looking to purchase a bottomless portafilter and am a little unsure of what I should buy. Would I be right in saying that a Gaggia Baby bottomless portafilter would be suitable for my Kitchenaid?

Many thanks

Yes, a Gaggia portafilter will fit. I used to use a Gaggia Carezza portafilter on mine that my husband made bottomless for me. I think all the Gaggia portafilters are the same.
