Looks great! This makes my Cona brewer much easier to control both the heat, and the transfer process of moving it. It also is a beautiful display piece. Thanks David!

Works just like the original OEM part. To best of my knowledge and google search, this is the only available replacement for the Cremina 1967.

Great portafilter for the Cremina, a little wax on the threads made it much easier to thread on the handle (old handle).

Got this 54mm portafilter and basket combo for a machine I'm rebuilding. This thing is more heavy-duty than the 58mm bottomless portafilter I've got for a different machine. Pretty crazy that just a portafilter can get me excited to rebuild a whole machine!

My dealings with David from CoffeeBOS was excellent. He answered all my questions and the item was shipped very quickly. All in all this is an excellent person to deal with.

Exactly as described. Fits perfectly in my 54mm Pasquini Livietta. Absolutely bulletproof construction -- built heavy enough to be super-temperature stable (and, probably, heavy enough to beat a rhino to death!).

I am very happy with this unit. I turned a handle for the unit that's a bit longer than the original Electra Mcal and the combination is a pleasure to use.
Custom balance of system (BOS) components for espresso and coffee brewing. Why brew bored?
When I started nerding out on siphon brewing, I decided that I wanted some "balance of system" (BOS) components to get the convenience and control that I wanted. With the help of my neighbor, Aldo Valdez Bohm, a woodworker and artist, I designed several siphon brew boards for home use. I am offering the Cona brew boards through Etsy so that other home baristas and coffee aficionados can optimize the brewing potential with this beautiful brewing system. All brew boards are built by Avalbo Industries (avalbo.com). I receive them in the raw, sanded through 220 grit, then sand them through 300 or 400 grit, depending on the surface, and apply the oil and wax finishes. The NEWD 49mm portafilter for Olympia Cremina and Elektra MCAL espresso machines are designed and manufactuered by Richard Penney. For more info check out the CoffeeBOS website: coffeebos.com
