Hello everyone,

Our shop has a beautiful GB/5 machine and I'm looking to get a bottomless portafilter to improve our techniques. But I have no idea if La Marzocco sell one for this machine, or if there's a generic 3rd party portafilter that will work.

If you have some experience regarding this matter, I'd love to hear more.

Thanks!

Go to Espresso Parts dot com and I think you'll find what you need. They'll even engrave your name in the handle if you want them to.

Thanks Mike. I've been trying to avoid that site as I'll probably end up spending more money than I should... 

I saw that they're selling a generic portafilter though, not OEM. From the description, I deduced that any bottomless portafilter for E-61 group will fit.

But this raises another question:

Thanks again.

My experience is that E-61 handles and LaMa handles are CLOSE but not interchangeable. Sometimes the shape of the ears messes the fit up. You can also try espressoresource.com. They've got a great selection and you can always talk to Michael or Angelo on the phone to confirm what you're buying will work.

Why do you need to buy  them just get you local machine shot to cut them on the lathe if you can find a good one they will do an awsome work and will cost you less then 20 $ for all of them. Make sure they smooth the edge after the cut.

I can confirm that the generic e61 bottomless portafilter will not fit the gb5 as I have tried it myself with a spare one I had. There are a number places that sell the marzocco bottomless portafilter, but it is usually a bit more expensive than others. The ones with the plastic handle seem to be the cheapest, the rubber ones usually a bit more, although I like them better myself.
