OE 3rd Shot Heat Sink, made of aluminum, with a silicone band, this is a 2023 redesign of our original OE 3rd shot that we made in 2011! We've revisited the concept, and modified the dimensions of the original to get a really good fit.
This one fits the Vintage Olympia machines including the Cremina (1967 to 2000 - does NOT fit the modern model), as well as all other vintage Olympia 49mm groups & La Pavoni Pre-Millenium & Millenium Europiccola & Pro home lever espresso machines
We are in production for one that will fit the New Cremina, the Cremina SL, and a good fit in the MCaL but I don't have a date yet for it's arrival.
It may fit other machines but we don't have them to double check the fit...
The amount and speed of temperature reduction varies depending on the temperature of the 3rd Shot when you put it in the group, as well as ambient temps in the room, the machine temp, etc., but it DOES reduce the temp in the group when you use it. It weighs 225 grams. Made in Taiwan.
