We will be sending you five portafilter to group seals

You can lever the shower screen out carefully with the use of a wide, flat bladed screwdriver placed on the press line on the side of the shower screen and using the notch cut in the bottom of the group that accomodates the PF lug as a fulcrum for the screwdriver

Alternate to the left and right side of the group with the screwdriver to get the shower plate completely off

You can use any of the many proprietary products for removing coffee tannins from the shower screen and then it should be ready to re-use

If the shower plate is fouled with silicone grease you will need to use surgical alcohol or similar to remove the silicone grease from the shower plate

 

Portafilter seal - care & usage

Keep the portafilter attached to the group when the machine is on, but remove the portafilter from the group when the machine is off. This gives the portafilter seal a chance to return to its original uncompressed state, prolonging its life

You should only need to turn the portafilter 30 to 45 degrees to the right (to the 6 o'clock position) to secure it when the seals are in good condition. Wrenching the portafilter handle further to the right than it needs to go will only serve to shorten the life of the seal 

Similarly, be sure to wipe the entire circumference of the portafilter basket of coffee grinds before securing to the group
