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.

Prevent coffee grounds from spilling all over your counter when using a Breville Espresso Machine.

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 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!

Hands-Free Dosing Funnel for Breville Barista 54mm Portafilters (Black)
  • Securely locks onto your portafilter and sits comfortably on the holder directly under the built-in grinder for a hands-free grinding session.
  • It is the perfect tool for effectively getting the coffee grinds in the filter basket without spilling.
  • Catches all the ground coffee into the portafilter and prevents a messy machine. No more grounds cleanup!
  • Makes it easier to tamp or distribute without spilling when the basket is overflowing with a heap of grounds.
  • Compatible with: Breville Barista Express, Barista Touch, Barista Pro, Infuser, Barista Pro, Bambino, Duo-Temp.
