Subject: La Pavoni Group Head size?
 

Hey guys, im trying to find the size of my La Pavoni Bar2 group head. I have searched everywhere (at least it feels like it) and cant find the answer anywhere.

I assumed it was 58mm, but when I put my Silvia V3 naked portafilter in it, it didn't fit. When I put the Pavoni in the Silvia, and my giotto, ithat wouldn't fit.

The La Pavoni Portafilter seemed like the top of it was higher that my V3 portafilters, but the V3 p'filters seemed like the two side bits (not sure what theyre called, one on each side of the portafilter that lock it into the group head), were too long to fit in the Pavoni machine.

Bottom line: I want to buy 2 naked portafilters for the La Pavoni, how do I do this???

Thanks for all your help on most probably a rookie question :)

The commercial La Pavoni Bar models come in all different shapes and sizes, where "2" only marks the number of brew groups: there's the Bar V, SV, D, M, S, T, and finally L, ranging from semi-automatic to automatic and even lever machines. Which machine do you actually own?

Just because the Silvia also has a 58 mm portafilter doesn't mean that it fits into the La Pavoni or any other machine. There are several E61 clones around, for example, that aren't always compatible. However, you can get a naked portafilter, that fits into commercial size La Pavoni groupheads here.
