Cafelat E61 8.5mm silicone group gasket unlike traditional rubber gaskets, last longer and odor free.

Cafelat's 8.5mm E61 blue group gaskets are made from food grade FDA silicone. Silicone replacement gaskets are softer than traditional rubber gaskets making them easier to create a good seal. Silicone gaskets do not produce any odors, smell or taste. Easy to change, as silicone does not bake hard like rubber over time.

The majority of E61 group machines being manufactured today are very similar, as most espresso machine manufacturers use either an 8.5mm or 8mm gasket. The 8.5mm gasket is thicker than the 8mm gasket, and this determines the proper position of the portifilter handle.

NOTES

  • 73mm x 57mm x 8.5mm
  • Fits most E61 group heads

What is the difference between 8mm and 8.5mm?

The thickness of the gasket will determine the “lock-in” position of the portafilter handle. Ideally you want the handle to lock in directly towards you (6 o’clock position). If the gasket is too thin it will lock in too far. If the gasket is too thick it will not lock in enough.

Please note: That although the gaskets are strong under compression, you should never use a sharp tool like a screwdriver to install them. This may tear the silicone.
