We have a lot of olive wood handles that are still fantastic olive wood handles, but have less "character" or grain than our regular olive wood handles.  These "boring" olive handles will usually have typical olive grain visible on between 0% and 50% of the circumference of the handle, and due to this more plain appearance we are offering them at a significant discount here.   They are otherwise identical to our regular olive wood handled portafilters.   As we have similar "boring olive" steam knobs (also at a discounted price), we are still able to make good attempts to match the appearance of these to our steam knobs if ordered together.

NOTE that the image gallery shows a range of these "less grain" handles so that you can appreciate the appearance.   As the handles are attached with an M10 screw, using suitable shims (not supplied) will often allow you to adjust the final rotational position of the handle if you prefer one position or another.

This beautiful wooden handled naked / bottomless portafilter is suitable for any Gaggia Classic model.  It will also fit some other Gaggia models that use a similar portafilter group mount with 6.6mm ears/wings.

Specification:

  • Width:  approx 78mm wide (ear to ear)
  • Length: approx 235mm
  • Handle diameter : approx 30mm
  • Handle material:  Italian olive wood (as a natural wood product, the tone / grain and lightness or darkness of finish can vary)
  • Portafilter material: polished chrome plated brass
  • Supplied with:  triple basket, approx 22g capacity (approx 28mm deep)
  • Portafilter spring: 1.2mm or 1.4mm based on availability

Note that this is a naked / bottomless portafilter - we DO NOT currently have the regular spouted version of this portafilter with the same (less grain) handle.

Triple basket supplied may differ slightly in appearance to the one pictured (based on basket availability at time of order fulfilment - though will always be a triple basket of approx 21-22g capacity and approx 28mm deep)

Some other models that this portafilter will also fit include:  New Baby, Baby, Baby Class, Baby Twin, Baby Dosata,
Gaggia Coffee, Classic, Classic Pro, Classic 2019, Classic 2020, Evolution, Dose, Pure, Color, Paros, Tebe, Espresso, Topazio

As the wooden handles are a natural product, the graining and colour of the wood can differ slightly from that shown.  We have included an additional image to demonstrate some of the possible variances in the wood graining and staining - and this can be quite varied with olive . Also whilst we try hard to protect the wood from any damage, as they are commercially manufactured wooden handles they may occasionally have small dents, scratches or dings in the handle - though this obviously doesn't impact performance and if any are noticeable then we can provide advice on adjusting the mounting and minimising the visibility of them.

NOTE: If you're ejecting your spent pucks directly into the waste (bin/can/garbage), then with any portafilter you may well find that the basket exits as well.  We would always advocate the use of a proper "knock box" to ensure that this doesn't happen - whereby the basket is pushed into the portafilter whilst the spent puck is ejected, and there is no risk of loosing the basket from the portafilter,

Olive wood care and maintenance:  Most of our wooden products have a varnished finished, though the olive wood products are special and have an oiled finish - which typically requires periodic maintenance in order to enhance the appearance and feel of the grain, prevent any issues with cracking and increases the longevity of the wood.  As required, the olive wood should be lightly reoiled with food grade mineral oil (not olive oil or vegetable oil as this won't usually dry) - we find that very lightly sanding the handle with a very fine sandpaper before applying oil can also help the oil to be absorbed and makes the surface super-smooth after application.  Ensure the wood is dry and dust free by rubbing with a dry cloth, and then simply pour a little food grade mineral oil onto a cloth and rub this into the surface of the wood, leave it to dry for 10-15 minutes, the reapply - and after a further 15 minutes use a dry paper towel or cloth to remove any excess oil. That's it!
