A Domfilter is a domestic espresso machine filter. It connects from the top to the internal water pipe. Where there are two pipes, this will typically be the longest.
Domfilters protect the machine against scale build up. The connector is multi tiered. Therefore making it flexible for a multitude of coffee machines.
This includes most domestic and Hand Fill Machines. Most notable are the Gaggia Baby, Gaggia Classic, Paros, Cubika, Gran, Coffee Delux.
Furthermore Rancilio Silvia and the Iberital L'anna Hand fill can you them.
Please note that this filter will not eliminate scale altogether. Nothing does. It is merely a tool to help guard against it.
Use in conjunction with a Brita Filter jug and Puly Baby descaler. These will help you keep your machine in better shape.
