Unifilter

World's First Unibody Portafilter
Regular price $365 USD
Regular price USD Sale price $365 USD
Handle Material | FKM Rubber Handle Material | FKM Rubber

Overview

We recreated the portafilter out of a single piece of stainless steel for an optimal extraction geometry. No more removable basket, unprecedented extraction geometry, improved thermal stability; a giant leap for espresso.. Use it, rinse it, wipe it, with no other routine maintenance. SCA Boston 2022 Coffee Accessory of the year.

    Materials

    The Unifilter is made from a solid piece of Stainless 304 material. All of the holes are individually laser-ablated and go right up to the vertical wall edge, giving a true 58.5mm puck from top to bottom. Made for 18g ~22g shots (and higher or lower with use or elimination of puck screen).

    Handles

    All handles have a solid stainless steel core to give them heft and longevity. That is covered either by a thick FKM rubber sleeve, or a cored-out solid piece of solid teak wood sanded and finished with a non-VOC oil.

    Included in package

    • 1 Unifilter, with either FKM Rubber or Teak handle.
    • 1 pack of 100 EPFs (also available in boxes of 1000)
    • 1 Stainless Steel mesh flow disruptor fitted for the Unifilter (to sit above puck)

    Compatibility

    Fits all standard 58mm portafilter groups with exposed group (LaMarzocco, Slayer, Synesso, Kees VanDer Westen, E61 group head, etc.). Decent espresso machine compatibility and how-to will be published very soon.

    Availability

    Due to the complex and intricate manufacturing process, the Unifilter will only be available in small quantities for the next several months. Went on sale April 7th to immediately sell out, and will have new stock available at the end of May 2022. New stock will be added each month thereafter.

    Recommended Pairing

    01 of 3

    For about a hundred years, the basic construction of the portafilter has remained the same. We decided to change that.

    Cleanliness

    With a removable basket, espresso residue inevitably builds up in the crevices. Without frequent removal and cleaning or acid baths, this can become rancid. The Unifilter is a single piece with no hidden areas, so a simple water rinse after each use keeps it perpetually clean.
