I'm having a hard time finding on a portafilter I, just bought a machine (semi-auto) , but with a ppf Pressurized Portafilter, I know it will produce crema but the crema is dishonest and i need to analise shots.
I need a portafilter, non pressurized , convertible between a bottomless to analyse shots and a standard config with a beak
[Pro Tip] Preheat Portafilters, The Grouphead, and the demitasse.

There are a lot of different pressurized systems: For example, sometimes there's a removeable (like rubber) disk beneath the filterbasket, others have double walled baskets, so you'd need regular filters. In case of the Saeco Aroma, the so called "patented pressurized Crema filter" is located within the lower half of the portafilter itself, so you'll actually need to swap the portafilter like Chris suggested. On the other hand, it appears that you've already done that. Please, clarify your problem for us.
