 Pressurized portafilter is a special tool that allows pre-infusion delay and builds extraction pressure to 9 Bars in 5 to 8 seconds. To pull classic shots of espresso with a pressurized portafilter, powdery fine grind and tamping is not necessary. Extraction time for espresso averages between 8-10 seconds. The Pressurized portafilter is not a commercial portafilter and should not be used like one. Burnt and bitter tasting over extracted coffee is NOT espresso!

 Special instructions for use of Saeco pressurized portafilters: When using ground coffee, use coarser grind like the table salt grain. Feel the ground coffee for adjustment. Do not use grinder adjustment setting by the grind calibration number. Do not tamp. Just level the cup with coffee grounds and lock the portafilter into the group ring. Pull the handle all the way to the right and hold. Turn espresso hot water switch on.  Hold the portafilter pulled all the way to the right for 5 seconds (pre-infusion pressure builds up to 9 bars). Release the handle at the end of 5 seconds to allow espresso to drip in the cup. Espresso shots should be max. 2 oz. or less. For larger quantity, use two shots. For serving Americana coffee, dispense hot water from the same machine instead of allowing 8 oz. of water to pump through the coffee grounds.
