Severin ka 5995
I’ve had a good look on the internet and struggled to find anything
I have a 58mm machine and the shower screen is exactly 58mm wide, so I guess that's what you measure, but I suspect that machine will require a proprietary PF and possibly proprietary basket.
In coffee I didn't make myself news, made it out to Bon, Browns of Brokley's new spot in Dulwich this morning - pretty ace. There's a pretty great bunch of coffee spots in Dulwich now; Lane Eight, Oru, Bon all distinctly better than your run of the mill.
I’ve measured quite crudely with a tape measure and I’d say it’s 60mm
But it could also be 58mm
On the portafilter chat, be wary that not all portafilters of a given size will not be interchangeable. The little lugs on the sides can differ between machines so try to find one for the specific machine.
Edit: Just had a look and realised it has 3 lugs on it instead of the normal 2. Honestly never seen a portafilter with that shape before!
If you want to measure it, I think you should measure the shower screen, the basket probably has sloped walls, so that when fitted there's a suitable gap between grinds and shower screen.
As others say, you might be out of luck getting a different pf to fit.
Oh and I just noticed you measured the outside edge, should be inside. So it looks around the 51mm mark, but the shower screen will be more accurate.
Excuse my ignorance which part is the shower screen
The first picture you showed

Maybe worth a punt?
Too small at 51mm I think
The diameter refers to the inside diameter of the basket, so about 52mm in your case. Could of course be 2” if American.
Hmmm I thought like Jonny that the measurement is the internal
A great Sunday game of guess my basket size!
Ah my bad! Gotta admit I've never actually measured a portafilter!
This accessory kit is sold on their website
ZB 5996 Barista Starter Set Espresso Maker
SKU ZB 5996
tamper diameter approx. 51 mm - suitable for most portafilter espresso machines
I would imagine the tamper was designed to fit your portafilter
I’m going to try this and see how I get on
New display/PCB unit has fixed my grinder, thank fuck for that... Now I just have to dial in my espressos again, first two came out shit... I think a recalibration is in order...
I'm drinking a coffee from a roastery I hadn't heard of before, a honey processed Costa Rican from Girls Who Grind, they only work with female led, small scale producers
The bonus is it tastes really good!
That's very fourth wave of you, H...
Sounds great BTW, a terrific enterprise!
Dark Arts were giving away a free box of their beans with every order for International Womans Day a few weeks ago. I had the Guatemalan and it was fantastic. Ordered some more direct from them yesterday. Looking forward to trying more of their stuff.
Yeah that's how I found out about them. I didn't need any more beans at the time but did more recently.
That's very fourth wave of you
That's very fourth wave of you
I think I'm done with this third wave shit too. I don't think I was ever into it anyway.
My evil plan is coming to fruition.
