Item: Starbucks Barista Saeco Pressurized Portafilter 2018
SKU/Part #: 996530010423
This is the current 2018 Saeco’s Redesigned Pressurized Portafilter which replaces all older versions of pressurized portafilters.
Saeco stopped producing the “newer-style one” (with the ergonomic handle) and returned to manufacturing one more similar to the one they made many years ago. We are puzzled by the choice but it is the ONLY pressurized portafilter currently produced by/for Saeco.
The handle is a harder black plastic, and the portafilter comes complete with a double basket. Please email us if you are not sure if this portafilter will fit your specific unit.

Please note, there are multiple reasons why an existing pressurized portafilter is no longer brewing properly, including:
- portafilter malfunctioning
- blockages due to scale or coffee residues
- weak pump
As this is a non-returnable part under any circumstances (they are inspected and spring mechanism is tested prior to shipping), before replacing an existing portafilter that has quit brewing, we recommend reviewing this troubleshooting guide.
