How are our Fracino compatible portafilters made?
The head of our Fracino compatible portafilter is formed from solid brass. Brass is softened by heating prior to being pressed in to a portafilter mould. The resulting brass component is then machined to ensure the item has the correct shape and dimensions to fit a Fracino group. Holes in this brass portafilter head are drilled and tapped in order to accept the correct size spout and handle. The portafilter head is then sent off for chrome plating before being assembled with the correct ancillary components – single or twin spout, 7g or 14g basket, plastic or wooden handle.
