Recommended to be replaced every year, or when the gasket hardens or cracks.

We will not be responsible or able to advise if the Bezzera Portafilter Gasket works with machines not purchased from Fine Coffee Company or our authorised distributor. Do note that Bezzera/Expobar espresso machines purchased from overseas may be of earlier versions and may not be compatible with the Bezzera Portafilter Gasket. We are also unable to confirm if the gaskets work with third party filter holders, shower screens or baskets. We will not be responsible for any incompatibility.

The following compatibility list only applies to machines distributed by Fine Coffee Company.

For machines manufactured before 2015:

The old gaskets are stiffer, they can be used on all versions of BZ grouphead machines

New design, for machines manufactured from 2015 onward:

BZ machines manufactured after December 2014 are provided with a new design of gasket for the grouphead, which is softer and makes it very easy to lock the portafilter.

End users will much appreciate this new upgrade, the machine feels easier to handle when you fit the filter holder compare to any other machines.

Users may feel it’s not tight, at 6 to 7 O’clock lock, but they seal well enough.

Still, it is possible to use either the old or the new gaskets on all BZ grouphead machines.


To know your manufacturing date, refer to the back page of your user manual or refer to the labels behind the drip tray.

Replacement instructions:



Gaskets must be properly fit, else the portafilter might not lock properly which can result in it coming off during pressurisation. Release of portafilter during pressurisation can cause an explosion of hot water from the grouphead causing hurt and damage.

We will not be responsible for any damages incurred during the replacement. Gaskets sold are not refundable.
