Mike S asked: Will this ports filter fit my estro 410? Dec 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas S: I doubt they are the same. The Saeco "Starbucks Barista", "Rio Vapore", and "Via Venezia" all use the same (pressurized) 53mm portafilters and most other parts. A later portafilter used a prettier curved handle rather than the previous straight one, but they are otherwise identical. I have seen an unpressurized portafilter for these machines, but I'll stick with pressurized since it works for me.

If you can find someone with a Saeco, borrow or compare with your old portafilter (if it exists). You need to know if the Estro 410 uses a pressurized portafilter. Nowhere in my manual does it specify what my Saeco uses. You also need to measure the distance from the upper rim to the flanges on the side as well as the thickness of the flange to see if it fits. It is a lot easier to just borrow a Saeco and try it out.

I can provide the Saeco measurements if you like.

Thomas S: Maybe it's irrelevant, but possibly your portafilter is just clogged up. Mine was (after 8 or 9 years) and I soaked it for a day or two in both descaler and espresso cleaner. I couldn't believe how much brown gook came out. The bottom half of my boiler had turned into soft rust sludge, so a new bottom boiler half was installed by me.Since my machine was clogged up, my pump also died. I replaced it with a 52 watt ULKA pump, so it not only works perfectly, but is much quieter. I probably spent more than my Barista cost new, but it should be good for 2 or 3 more years or until I have an extra $2 Grand to get a quality machine. Dec 31, 2013

Teri KStaff: This Aroma Pressurized Portafilter does fit a number of Saeco manufactured espresso machines, but unfortunately I am not certain that it will fit your Estro 410, since I don't have one here to test. Sorry I can't be of greater assistance on this for you! Dec 31, 2013

TITTU M: I have the Barista by Starbucks which is made by Saeco.
This Saeco portafilter works perfectly for the Barista and should work for other semi-automatic Saeco machines

Eli B asked: Hi--will this fit our old Estro Profi (some websites call it a Combi, as it has built-in beans grinder)? Thanks. I take it we need to buy additional basket to get a double-shot espresso? And when will you have it back in stock? Apr 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Yes, the Saeco Aroma pressurized portafilter will fit the Estro Profi machine. The portafilter comes with a double basket but if you would like to purchase extra we do offer them on our site. Unfortunately, we are out of stock currently on both portafilters and machines but are expecting to have them back in stock at the end of this week. If you need those parts before then, you can check out encompassparts.com. Apr 8, 2014

Eli B: Thanks, Teri! Would you recommend this portafilter, or the round-handled one that fits the Venezia, if I'm replacing it for our Estro Profi? We will def. want to use a double-shot; and I see it comes with the Venezia/tapered handle, but not the Aroma/flat handled one. Do they produce the same espresso taste? Apr 8, 2014
Teri KStaff: The Via Venezia portafilter is a bit more heavy duty and durable than the Aroma portafilter. Our ETA for the Venezia portafilter is 04/25. You can sign up to receive an email notification on the product page if you'd like.

Teri KStaff: Both Aroma and Via Venezia portafilters will include the double basket. They are built internally just the same and will produce the same quality espresso. The main difference is just the style and material of the handle. Either portafilter will work great with your Estro Profi! Apr 9, 2014
Reply to Teri Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Eli B: Thank you, Teri. Two final questions:
* Your online review says the handle of the "Venezia" is more durable than previous models. Does this mean more durable than the Aroma portafilter? Or are they equivalent?
*If Venezia is more durable, superior in that regard, how long might wait be for item to come back in stock? I see "Aroma" is already back in stock. Thanks. Apr 12, 2014

A shopper asked: Will this portafilter (Saeco Aroma Pressurized Portafilter - 53mm) fit a Jura Rio Profi machine?

Jordan9070 asked: Hi. I have a 2000 Francis Francis X1 that has a missing portafilter basket. I ordered a replacement portafilter set from Illy but it was too big and they no longer carry parts for this size. This model is apparently 53mm, and the new machines are much larger. I ordered a La Speziale (sp?) double filter bc it is also 53mm, but the bottom of my filter basket it tapered, so it doesn't sit all the way down. I am wondering if I can purchase an entire portafilter set as a replacement for a Francis Francis X1, built in 2000. And if I do buy it, can I return it if it doesn't work? And if you possibly know the answer to my problem, will you offer a suggestion? Nov 19, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Unfortunately because portafilters are brand and machine specific, I do not think that this Aroma Portafilter will work for your Francis Francis machine, but I do not have that model here to test. If you do choose to purchase this portafilter to give it a try, then we could return it, provided that it was unused. Do keep in mind that if you return the portafilter because it doesn't fit, you would be responsible for shipping costs. Our return policy is below for reference, and let me know if you have any other questions!

This replaced a worn out and cracked portafilter from my Estro Vapore (Starbucks). With the original, you were able to open and close the filter by moving it left or right once inserted. With the new one it, is permanently open and seems to have its own pressure regulator that "pops" once the requisite pressure is attained. Moving the handle has absolutely no effect on anything. It does work well but this was not detailed in the provided info so if this is something you want be advised. The service from SGC has been great, the price is very competitive (although they are ALL overpriced) and it was delivered a day early.

I purchased this portafilter instead of buying a new Saeco Aroma to replace my 7 year old machine. This, combined with the descaling solution, is making delicious espresso and perfect crema. Thrilled with it and received great service from SCG. I only wish shipping (which was free for my order) was a little quicker. I waited at least a week-which for espresso fanatics-is a long time!!

I've owned 2 Saeco Aromas with this poratfiler in the last 5 years. These filters combined with a good espresso coffee make an espresso that rivals any I've tasted with a great crema! Ordering another for my second machine because I broke the filter after 5 years of use. Helpful hint- buy some of the descaler and use it every couple months to keep the filter basket from clogging up over a 1-2 years of frequent use. Tap water will eventually clog the filter basket. Not a bad design, just happens when you heat water under pressure and push it through the filter basket. You can't beat the price and money you'll save over Starbuck or your local barista...Enjoy!!!

On the cusp of upgrading my grinder, I decided to replace the portafilter on my 4-year old Saeco Aroma first. For a $60 fix I'm now getting better crema than I did with the original. Free shipping with ups tracking. What's not to like. Would trust SCG for future orders without hesitation.

I broke the handle on my Saeco portafilter and found this replacement on the Net. Initially it was back ordered and became available while I was traveling in Europe. My order was held (I guess it was suspicious of fraud, ordered from overseas to the US) but after some explanation it was shipped. It is a perfect replacement and the same heavy weight - while in Europe I found a very flimsy, lightweight portafilter holder and was worried that I will get that model.
