Hi all!

My trusty Krups machine portafilter broke.

While my dream is to upgrade to a Rancilio Silvia, I can't afford that right now.

This is a pic of the current portafilter type:

I tried googling for portafilter types, but I can't seem to find something like this!

Is it possible to get a replacement I can just use immediately? I've seen some Krups replacement filters that also have 3 "prongs", but the shape of the prongs looks slightly different.

See pic here:

In particular, as per the attached image, the prong at the bottom of the pic (6 o clock) seems to have a small groove on it.

Appreciate any help!



Thanks :)

Get a used machine from a thrift store or craigslist.  It will be cheaper than ordering from the company.  You might get lucky and find a better machine while you are there.  I have heard of gaggias at thrift stores.  The only silvia I would get if I were you is a used one.  They are not worth the price new.  You can do better for the cost of a new silvia.

it's not a total waste since your broken portafilter can now be used as a saw or a weapon in the zombie apocalypse.
