Thanks I will look into it.

Years ago, prior to my upgrade fever, I owned a Vapore.  I ordered the replacement  filter directly from Saeco.  

Just remember, after you pull that first shot, wail until you remove the filter.  Otherwise, you'll have grounds splatter all over the place.

I just got a non-presurized portafilter for my Saeco Classico from Saeco-USA for $18. Send E-mail to Info@Saeco-usa.com . I just got a tamper today so haven' t made but two shot with it.

Thanks for the info. I'll be ordering one today. I've figured out how to make a shot that's not bad on the Barista by following many of the tip on the board, but it's time to go up a level.

Since last week I have had time to work with my new non-presurized portafilter. IMO the shot's I'm getting with the non-presurized portafilter our much better then with the pressurized portafilter ship with the Classico. I have been getting shot that look picture perfect and taste great too! I think it was a well worth the $18 dollars I paid for it.
