Hey guys,

I'm about to pull the trigger on the La Nuova Era Cuadra Commercial Espresso Machine - V2 - B101-B108- and I searched around the forum but can't seem to find which naked portafilter fits this machine. I found one post but the url was outdated. Anyways Is it this one? Click Here (www.1st-line.com)

Also, do any owners recommend a specific naked portafilter with this machine? (Doesn't have to be purchased through 1st line).

Thanks!

That one should fit, as your machine has the E61 group.

Agree. Above. That is a E61 group head, though there are several flavors of them (they HAVE been around since 1961)) for the vast majority of them the "stock" of fits and it is true here

thanks guys I'll go ahead and order it. Got nervous because they didn't list the Cuadra as a compatible machine.

Is it that hard to call 1st Line and ask?

a lot easier to be a troll than it is to call first line on a saturday. Their office hours are 9-6 mon-fri.

Yes, that is the one I use with my Cuadra. It comes with a triple basket, but you can pop that out and put a your double basket in - unless of course you actually use a triple basket - I never have.
