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.
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.
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.
