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

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 Stainless Steel puck screen fitted for the Unifilter (to sit above puck)

Compatibility

  • Standard (Flat)
    Fits standard 58mm portafilter groups with exposed group
    (LaMarzocco, Slayer, Synesso, Kees VanDer Westen, E61 group head, etc.) 
  • Dogleg (Offset)
    Fits all models of Decent and Flair 58 machines.

Victoria Arduino Compatibility Note: The Unifilter is compatible with VA machines, however it locks in significantly to the right of center. 

Availability

Standard (Flat) version is available for immediate shipping from our Taipei warehouse. Dogleg (for Decent Espresso and Flair 58 users) version is estimate to resume orders and shipping in January 2023.

The Unifilter™ in action.

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.
