edited: Ooops. Completely missed that the OP stated they have a lever machine. I guess I got all excited about helping out. :oops:

It sounds like you have a Breville machine, based on your description.If that's the case, Crema and MATOW both make very nice bottomless portafilters. I had the Crema portafilter, enjoyed it very much with its solid build quality and wood handle. It comes with its own basket which, in my opinion, was a bit nicer than the stock Breville basket.

Not sure how much international shipping would be, but here's a link from chriscoffee for the quickmill achille lever.

If this is indeed your lever espresso machine (see PDF linked earlier), then it's the same group as the Quickmill Achille, Profitec Pro 800, Londinium, and a host of others. Another option, if you have an extra spouted portafilter, is to make your own bottomless.

You haven't posted a photo of your existing portafilter, but given the limited information you've provided, I would guess it fits.
