Product Description

If you have never seen the crema that comes off of a bottomless portafilter, allow us to express just how perfect it is, both in taste and in aesthetics. La Marzocco has created this Bottomless Portafilter for its wonderfully designed GS/3 machines.

This well crafted portafilter does not include a basket.

How the La Marzocco GS/3 Bottomless Portafilter Works

Fill it up just like you would a standard portafilter.

  • Lightly fill the portafilter basket to the top.
  • Use your finger to gently even out the grounds.
  • Lightly press the tamper into the grounds and find a good center point.
  • Evenly apply approximately 30 pounds of pressure to the grounds.
  • Tap the side of the portafilter to reveal loose grounds.
  • Sit back and enjoy one of the coolest-looking effects in espresso extraction.

Does this LM Bottomless Portafilter also fit the Rocket Espresso Giotto Premium Plus with PID?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately, it does not fit on a Rocket. The tabs on the sides of the portafilter are too tall, so it is very difficult to even get it locked into the brew head. If you did manage to get it into place, it would take a lot of effort, and if the machine was hot, would be impossible. Sorry!

Does the portafilter and basket fit the Silvia?
roryN on Feb 21, 2015
Best Answer: No, sorry, the tabs on the side of the portafilter are at different locations, so it will not fit the Silvia properly.

Does this fit on a Synesso Cyncra?
Miya S on Dec 10, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately, that is not a manufacturer that we've ever carried, so have been unable to test it. However, portafilters tend to be brand specific, so it likely would not fit properly. This could be due to a variety of reasons, from the tabs being the wrong length, height, or simply in the wrong orientation on the portafilter. Sorry!

The material description says the bottomless GS3 portafilter is made from stainless steel, but it looks like its chrome plated. Is it chrome plated Stainless Steel or Chrome plated brass?

A seriously good addition to a LM GS/3Review by Marshal
If you want/need to see what happens before the extracted coffee falls into your cup or shot glass, this is the way to go. Channeling and under- or over-extraction can be seen as it happens. IMHO: this portafilter base, particularly when used with the Strada double or tripple, laser-drilled baskets, completes the already terrific La Marzocco GS/3. It is so good that I believe that LM does itself a disservice by not providing it as one of their standard issues.

Easy To Use, Commercial Grade, Great Taste, Can see extraction output, Easy To Clean
