Lightweight portafilters inspired by aerospace and motorsports. Your average portafilter weighs 300g or much more in many cases while these are as light as 85g!
These portafilter heads are designed using topology optimization and made by additive manufacturing (sintered aluminum powder) resulting in a cast aluminum finish.
Will the reduced thermal mass warm up quicker, allow for better temperature profiling and make better espresso? Maybe. Does it look cool and feel good? I think so! The reduced weight is such a different experience compared to the norm.
Lightweight configuration weighs ~127g with a replaceable solid Delrin handle*
Ultra-lightweight configuration weighs ~85g with a fixed carbon fiber handle*
