Now available, the naked (bottomless) portafilter handles for your Nuova Simonelli espresso machine.
Most retailers simply cut out the bottom of the portafilter handles exposing the brass below the chrome finish. The portafilter handles that we sell at Espressotec are professionally cut out & re-chromed giving your naked handle a true professional finish.
The handles come with a retaining spring and a 21 gram triple shot basket! Also you can still fit your double, single, or blind (cleaning) basket into the naked handle.
A few reasons to buy a naked portafilter handle:
Increased levels of crema since the coffee goes directly from the basket to your cup and no crema is lost in the pouring spouts
Less spilling since there are no spouts for the coffee to drip out of after you pull your shot, with the naked handle the coffee in the basket retains excess water
Less cleaning since you don't need to worry about cleaning out the bottoms of your portafilter handles anymore
Better shots since you can judge your tamping by the flow/pour of the coffee, if the pour is a single stream then there is adequate tamping vs if it pours out of several streams or spurts erratically then there isn't adequate tamping force
Easily switch between any basket by pushing out your existing basket from the back, this saves you from reaching for a screwdriver to pry out the basket or using your fingernails
Fits all Nuova Simonelli espresso machines using the 58mm grouphead.
