Helps reduce channelling | 53.5mm | 51mm | 58.5mm portafilters

Stainless steel lower shower wafer for dry coffee pucks


This second, mesh stainless steel lower shower wafer is 1.7mm thick, for a slower extraction and is designed to reduce channelling and more even balanced extraction.

This second coffee puck lower shower screen or contact screen is placed directly on the coffee puck, after tamping and suits naked portafilters. It helps avoid channelling and minimise puck disturbance and keeps the shower screen clean too.


  • Distributes water evenly accross the puck and eliminates channelling.
  • Keeps shower screens clean - no build up of coffee debris (ideal for nanotech showerscreens that do not like strong detergents)
  • Cools down coffee - if group temperature water is too high.

1.Fill portafilter with ground coffee, use WDT , leveller and tamper to prepare the puck
2.Insert this shower screen onto the prepared puck.
3.Make espresso ..
4.Remove screen before banging the puck out in the knock box.
5.Rinse under tap and clean with coffee cleaner such as Puly caff or Urnex

💡 As this screen is dense - you should warm up 1st by inserting into portafilter, and make a shot (without coffee in the basket) prior to use. If group temp is 94 °C - this wafer will drop temp by 1-2 °C , if not cooled - this suits 100% arabica coffees - that like 88-92 °C temperatures.

Options: ⚠️ Check the width of your basket - just in case, as Manufactures often make different size baskets.

Using the screen helps to have even water flow and pressure, resulting in a smoother, more dense and flavoursome drink with no bitterness. Highly recommended
