By popular demand, we are happy to offer the Rancilio Commercial Triple Shot Portafilter, complete with triple dose basket and double spout. If you have a Rancilio espresso machine, such as the Silvia, and prefer to brew with larger doses of ground coffee than a double shot basket can hold, and need up to 22 grams of capacity, then you need this genuine Rancilio Triple Shot Portafilter. The standard Rancilio portafilter will not fit a triple shot basket, but this part features a deeper bowl to accommodate that larger basket. Fully assembled, it weighs1 pound, 7.6 ounces. Rancilio part number 10071131.
This Rancilio commercial portafilter can be used in the Rancilio Silvia, Epoca, and any of the current and discontinued Rancilio commercial espresso machines with a 58mm group head. It holds 58 mm portafilter baskets and will also work with any espresso machine with a 58 mm E61 brew group. It comes with two commercial length spouts. Please note that on the Silvia, the distance between the cup grid and the tip of the spout will be 2.5 inches when using this part. Rancilio Part Number 10071131
|Name:||Rancilio Triple Shot Portafilter with Double Spout and Basket|
When I bought a new Rancilio Silvia machine, the port-a-filter did not fit as much as my old machine. I found that Rancilio now makes a "triple", so I thought I would try it. As it turns out, it did not fit my grinder very well, and the clearance between the Silvia and the shot glasses was too little when the filter was in place. So, I decided to return the item. When I called for an RMA, I was told that this item was "commercial", and thus not returnable after 7 days, which I thought was a bit arbitrary (as I was using it for my home). To Hufford's credit, they did allow me to return it after I complained. Caveat emptor.
The triple shot portafilter allows me to get a mug of espresso coffee and sip it while I read the newspaper. Great way to relax.
The double shot portafilter is not large enough and causes the shower screen to clog. The "bottomless" portafilter with a triple basket is big enough, but preventing the brew from squirting out the side is tricky. This portafilter has none of these problems and yields consistently excellent results.
