Features and differences between the iconic 54mm Dalla Corte portafilter and the classic 58mm

Jul 18, 2019


Designed with the experience and knowledge of Paolo and Bruno Dalla Corte, the 54mm portafilter has always been a lead character in Dalla Corte professional espresso machines. Let’s see what the main distinctions with the traditional 58mm portafilter are.

During extraction with a 9 bar pressure, the 54mm portafilter weighs about 30kg less on the coffee cake compared to the 58mm. With the same dose of coffee, the 54mm portafilter ensures a taller coffee cake. Hot water will take longer to drip through the grounded coffee and with less pressure: the result will be a richer and more flavourful coffee.

With the ever increasing interest in specialty coffee, Dalla Corte wanted to give its customers the option to install on its DC  professional coffee machines also the 58mm portafilter, allowing baristas to use a higher amount of some particular blends, which require an overdosing to truly bring out the aromas in the cup.
