Say hello to the 49mm Unifilter®. You asked, we delivered. The revolutionary Unifilter, where the basket and the portafilter become one and the extractions are unprecedented, is now available in an exclusive presale for 49mm machines. If you own an Olympia Cremina ('67 - 2023) or a La Pavoni pre-Millennium (before Aug 2000), your coffee and your palate will thank you for this upgrade.


Built in exactly the same way as its big brother, we start with a solid mass of stainless that goes through a series of transformative manufacturing process to create a seamless, hardened, polished, and everlasting form to further enhance your espresso. Just like its 58mm counterpart, it will be available with a solid stainless core FKM rubber or Teak handle. Re-envisioned, reinvented, recreated, and fully revolutionary.


FREE TAMPER: To show our appreciation for lever espresso culture and for entrusting us with this project, we are including a free custom-designed-and-fabricated tamper made to match the Unifilter 49. Made with a stainless-core, solid teak handle (same as the Unifilter), it's another heirloom quality object fitted perfectly to the Unifilter 49. Available exclusively with the pre-order purchase. 


PLEASE NOTE: Available for PREORDER only.  Shipping starts in mid-March, 2024.

Availability & Delivery

The Unifilter® 49 is available as PREORDER only.


Orders expected to begin shipping by mid February 2024. We'll get them to you as early as we can, and we know exactly what to do to get there.


BODY: 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 49mm puck from top to bottom. Made for 16-18g shots (depending on the roast level and/or bean density).

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

  • One Unifilter®, with either FKM Rubber or Teak handle.
  • One 49mm custom WW Tamper with solid stainless core and solid Teak handle.


The Unifilter® 49 is designed to fit all eras and models of Olympia Cremina machines, as well as the La Pavoni 49mm (pre-Millennium) home lever machines. Not compatible with La Pavoni made after Aug 2000 which use 51mm.

Thoughtful Details

Basket Holes Active Area

Due to how they are manufactured, typical 49mm baskets have angled side walls and only ~37mm diameter of usable hole diameter. The Unifilter 49 has straight internal walls and a full array of holes to the side walls for even extraction throughout the puck. This is 75% more area (or elimination of the 43% loss), but the results are profound and delicious.
