Breville Espresso: Prevent Coffee Grounds from Spilling Over

I highly recommend Breville espresso machines for home espresso; however, if you aren't extra careful, you will end up with coffee grounds all over your counter and floor. Luckily there is a solution.

Best Dosing Funnel for Breville Espresso Machines

Last year, I upgraded my Breville Barista Express to the Breville Oracle Touch. One of the main reasons for this upgrade was that I was getting fed up with cleaning up the coffee grounds that inevitably spill out of the portafilter and onto my countertop and floor. While this wasn’t the only reason for my upgrade, I’ve certainly noticed a difference as the Oracle Touch comes with an auto tamper that avoids this mess all together.

Luckily you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on an upgrade if this is your only beef with your manual tamping Breville espresso machine. You can now purchase a dosing funnel that easily attaches to your portafilter; you simply grind beans through the funnel and into the filter basket. This allows you to avoid the spill over when it comes time to tamp!

Breville now sells a dosing funnel that they manufacture themselves. It is compatible with Breville 54mm portafilters used on the Barista Express(BES870), Barista Pro (BES878), and the Barista Touch (BES880).

Breville Dosing Funnel for 54mm Portafilters

Grinding and tamping can be messy business, but the Dosing Funnel™ attachment for the portafilter prevents coffee grinds from overflowing, to help reduce mess and waste. Compatible with Breville 54mm portafilters used on the Barista Express(BES870), Barista Pro (BES878), and the Barista Touch (BES880). BPA free materials and dishwasher safe. Less mess, less waste.

$14.95

If the Breville Dosing Funnel is not available, or if you prefer a stainless steel funnel, then I recommend this generic dosing funnel:

Stainless Steel Dosing Funnel - Fits 54mm Breville Portafilters
  • Designed to work with the Breville 54mm Portafilter baskets including Barista Express, Pro, Touch, Bambino Plus, Infuser and Duo-Temp Pro
  • Hands Free Design: With a twisting lock, it attaches securely and is easy to connect and remove. There are grooves that are meant to slide into the chute, then the front tap auto-activates the grinder for a perfect dose
  • Avoid Mess and Waste: With a coffee dosing funnel, all the coffee goes into the portafilter basket and significantly reduces the mess and difficulty in loading and tamping
  • Auto Grind and Easy to Tamp: With this dosing ring, you can activate the grinder with its front tap, allowing your machine’s auto dose feature to work as intended. Using this dosing ring makes it easier to tamp or distribute without spilling when the portafilter basket is overflowing with a heap of grounds
