What is a group gasket?

Espresso group portafilter gaskets are used to make the seal when you screw on your portafilter, when they age they go hard and brittle and end up leaking from the portafilter. If portafilter group gaskets are not changed frequently the rubber goes hard and can be very hard to remove. Typically when you try to remove the aged group gasket, it will come apart in pieces and small fragments will remain stuck in the group. Care must be taken to ensure these small fragments are removed otherwise the portafilter will be very hard to screw on.

A good practice is to change the group gasket every 6/9 months in a commercial environment and once a year for home use. You won't regret changing the gasket too frequently but you will if not changed in time. Old gaskets cause loss of pressure and loss of coffee cream during extraction. If coffee is dripping from the group during extraction - then the gasket has gone hard and needs to be replaced.

What are silicon group gaskets?

They are a vast improvement on the traditional gaskets that come preinstalled on coffee machines.

  1. They are easy to install and remove and don't break apart when removed. 
  2. They do not smell, unlike some rubber gaskets.
  3. Silicon group gaskets are made from food-safe silicon.
  4. Cafelat and Repa DVM are the mail silicon gas
