This handmade Australian hardwood portafilter handle is based on the traditional espresso handle design. The handle also has a lovely comfortable grip. Hand tapped and fitted with 9.0cm long stainless steel bolts for the ultimate strength. We do not use any type of modern copy equipment. Instead all of our coffee parts are traditionally hand turned individually in small batches at our Perth workshop in Western Australia. Please view our bolt size chart if you are unsure of the bolt size of your espresso machine. Our ‘removal’ information will help you remove your existing black plastic handle.
We use a mixture of hand rubbed food safe, heat proof and water resistant oils. These oils are perfect to withstand the rigours of the coffee brewing environment. Much more friendly than artificial chemical finishes such as polyurethane.
Our handmade coffee parts use sustainable or reclaimed natural hardwood’s sourced locally in Western Australia. We select all of our timber from specialist suppliers and only choose woods based on the weight, grain pattern and quality. For part sets we use the same log to ensure consistent colour and curl in the grain. We also do our best to try and source other types of hardwood’s upon request.
Every vivid swirling knot and sap hole tells the story of the tree’s growth and composition. To reveal the depth of hues and colours we use flowing ergonomic designs. Each portafilter handle is made from robust figured hardwood’s with an oversized broad rimmed edge which are designed to last a lifetime.

PF Handles generally use either an M10 or M12 bolt. This can be checked by using the below chart or simply by going to your local hardware shop with your PF Handle and checking whether an M10 or M12 nut fits the bolt.
M12: is generally used on any 58mm to 58.5mm portafilter on the following espresso machines:
- BFC delux
- Expobar Minore 3 & Brewtus
- Faema (some models)
- La Marzocco
M10: is generally used on the following espresso machines:
- Dalla Corte mini.
- Faema (some models)
- La Cimbali
- Le San Marco
- Nuova Simonelli
All of the coffee machine manufacturers use a thread locking glue on the black plastic PF handle bolts to prevent movement once they have been screwed into the group head. This glue can be softened with heat which will then allow them to be unscrewed easily.
We recommend pointing a hair dryer (for 10 minutes) or heat gun at the section the handle joins the head and gradually as it heats up they will start to budge. They can then be turned off by hand with a damp towel on the group head or in a vice for better grip if they are stubborn.
