La Marzocco has done it again and created an innovative way for easier shot-pulling and clean-up. Made of solid stainless steel, the La Marzocco Stainless Steel Portafilter with Breakaway Spout will keep consistent heat even after a number of uses. What's more, any espresso cake build-up wipes off easily and won't leave stains on your portafilter head. La Marzocco's Stainless Steel Portafilter also features removable snap on or snap off spouts to help you achieve ultra even shots, plus a flat tamping stand on its tip so you can place it on the counter for a more stable and even tamp.
Features & Functionality of the La Marzocco Stainless Steel Portafilter with Breakaway Spouts
Stainless Steel Portafilter: No matter how many shots you pull, unlike the original chrome-plated brass portafilter, you'll still be able to wipe this portafilter clean. It will leave no trace of espresso puck stains.
Break Away Spouts: Giving you the ability to clean inside and out, these spouts are easily able to snap on and off, preventing any espresso ground build up.
Tamping Stand: Unlike other portafilters, this one gives you a flat surface at the tip of the portafilter that gives you a more stable surface to place on your countertop, giving you a more even tamp.
Compatibility: This portafilter will fit any and every type of La Marzocco Espresso Machine.
Light Weight: Compared to the original La Marzocco portafilter, this portafilter is 10% lighter in weight.

Best Answer:OK, so there seems to be conflicting response to the fit of the LM PF on E61 Group Heads. On the thread above regarding a 6K machine, it says that the this La Marzocco PF would fit E61 groupheads. However the answer on this thread says it WONT fit an e61 group head. I see that you guys tried it on the R58 and says it fit for that so it should fit for the Profitec 700, but what about the Quickmill e61s (ie. Vetrano2B or QM67)? Thanks in advance.
Hi Vince, Yep - I found the same thing. In the end, I went for a Cafelat E61 PF which is superb: even better build quality than LM, stainless steel, bakelite handle (and I believe you can now also choose wood) and 'convertible' (both to naked, and spout sizes). Only caveat is if you have the thicker gasket in the group, you may need a thinner one to lock it in tight. Hope this helps! J
By "Cafelat E61 PF" did you mean their "convertible" version, where you can go from Dual-spout to Bottomless? I wondered about those! If you've had good experience with them, I will definitely check them out! heard they're also fully stainless steel so in theory, they shouldn't get as gunky as the chrome-plated brass ones! :) Thanks!
Sweet! Looks like CC was a distributor but no longer carries it. Cafelat store has it but for some reason, doesn't have the option for the "wood" handle. I wouldn't mind spending a little more for wood handle as opposed to the Bakelite or Rubber ones available now. Do you know where to get the Wooden handled Cafelat?
I love this concept, but don't really want to spend $6000+ for a machine. Does this fit any other espresso machines that might be more economical?

Best Answer:I have tried this portafilter in a few machines, and the only other brew head it seemed to fit was an E61 brew head. Take a look at our Rocket machines, which have E61 brew heads. They are very high quality, great machines, but cost less than a La Marzocco machine.
Best Answer:Unfortunately I am not sure that this La Marzocco portafilter will fit your machine as we don't offer any of those models and so I can't test it for you. Sorry I can't be of better assistance on this!
Hello. Will this portafilter fit my Rocket Cellini Evoluzione V2? Also, considering that it has a breakaway spout, would it be practical to use this without the spout to pour into a single espresso cup? Finally, which La Strada baskets will this accomodate? Thank you in advance.

Best Answer:Hi Roger, If this is indeed the portafilter and basket I bought from Seattle Coffee Gear, as they have informed me is the case and asked if I could be helpful with your question, they do indeed fit. On the question of what other baskets it would accommodate, I recall checking the specs of the portafilter and getting some info there about basket compatibility. Finally, I've kept the spouts on, out of habit, I guess, and if you have a wide enough cup there's no problem, which is what I have. Hope this helps. Best., Alan
Best Answer:I'm sorry you're having trouble with that spout! The easiest way to reattach that breakaway spout on your La Marzocco Portafilter is to start by wetting the rubber gasket and leaving it very damp so the spout slides on more easily. Then, turn the entire portafilter upside-down so that the basket is facing your counter. Finally, line up the spout and slide it back into place from the handle toward the opposite point while pressing down. I hope this helps, but let us know if you have any other questions!
