This stainless steel 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.  It's available without an handle, or with any of the handles that we supply with our regular brass/chrome bottomless portafilters as options selected below.


  • Width:  approx 75mm wide (ear to ear)
  • Length with a handle: approx 220mm
  • Handle diameter : varies depending on handle chosen
  • Handle material:  natural wood or plastic or none (depending on handle chosen)
  • Portafilter material: stainless steel
  • Supplied with:  triple basket, approx 22g capacity (approx 28mm deep) - not included with “no handle” option.
  • Portafilter spring: 1.2mm or 1.4mm based on availability

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 (NOT Gaggia Espresso 2023), Topazio

As the wooden handles are a natural product, the graining and colour of the wood can differ from any shown.  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,

NOTE: Unlike almost all other Gaggia portafilters, this stainless portafilter head will allow a Weber Unibasket to be used with a Gaggia machine.  Note that the thinner portafilter spring (supplied with a Unibasket) MUST be used with Weber Unibaskets.

Got this for my recently acquired GCP Evo. I'd tried to source an official Gaggia one but there are supply issues here in Canada, then found this one when searching for alternatives and glad I hadn't already got the Gaggia one as this is way nicer. In the wenge wood, with matching steam knob, gives a nice aesthetic to my stainless machine. The texture of the handle is superior to the plastic so actually helps with PF install/remove, and definitely looks more premium. Finish on the wood seems high quality and expect it to last a long time. The stainless PF itself is hefty and perfectly compatible with my machine, zero issues. Only issue I've had is the handle screw thread sometimes backing off when removing the PF as I guess the rotation of the PF to the left matches the handle-thread loosening so with a lot of leverage it can rotate a bit in the hand. I've added some thread-lock and haven't had an issue since. Might be good to see some blue Loctite added from the factory, not enough of an issue to affect rating though. The supplied triple basket looks... fine but I've honestly not used it as I have an IMS Big Bang (ridgeless) which popped straight in and is retained well by the PF spring that I can knock out pucks without losing the basket. Overall completely satisfied and highly recommend if looking for a bottomless PF for your GCP.
