Rancilio Silvia - Genuine Original Silvia Naked Portafilter Handle, Made in Italy.
L I M I T E D E D I T I O N... Factory made, Limited Supplies!
Genuine original Rancilio 58mm Bottomless naked portafilter handle, made in Italy by Rancilio.
Our original naked portafilter handle is brand new and not a rebuilt or chopped handle. It is made of 100% brass and fully nickel plated by the factory.
Chopped handles are made out of new or used handles and expose the brass under the original nickel plating during the cutting process (see image to the right). It causes the nickel plating around the handle and edges to peel off and stripped with time. In addition, during normal usage the exposed brass darkens similar to bronze finish in natural reaction to heat and absorbs stains quickly.
The original Rancilio Bottomless handle comes with oversized Stainless Steel triple (21 grams) coffee basket and can also be used with the single and double shot baskets that you may already have. Fit all Rancilio 58mm grouphead espresso machines.
If you want to watch perfection of coffee extraction at its best, this is it. With bottomless portafilter handle you can watch the coffee as it flows right from the bottom of the filter basket to your cup. This item is also great for training purpose since you can easily see if channelling occurs - a sign for uneven tamping or grind levels. Enjoy most astonishing extraction colors.
The Bottomless Portafilter (Naked Portafilter) require passion and patience for perfecting the espresso shot. If your coffee is not fresh, not suitable for espresso, the grind level or tamping is incorrect you may get channelling or splattering. However, your patience will be rewarded, its fun and cool item!
