What is a bottomless portafilter and what is it used for?

Bottomless portafilters are used as a training tool. It will provide you with immediate feedback and can see if channeling occurs right away.

Channeling is the rapid passage of water through fractures in the coffee puck, which produces a thinner, under-extracted espresso. When it occurs, you'll often see sudden appearances of blond streaks in the stream of espresso; sometimes the puck will even have pencil lead-sized holes where channeling occurred.


This Bottomless Portafilter fits all of the espresso machines with an E61 group. Basket is polished aluminum

Works, but chrome plating lacks quality February 3, 2017
Reviewer: Peter Honig from Concord, MA United States  
This portafilter is completely functional and produces shots with excellent crema. My only complaint is the lack of quality in the chrome plating on the inside of portafilter, such that you can see the brass substrate. Compared to the high-quality stainless steel portafilters that came with my QuickMill Vetrano, this one really pales in comparison. Eventually I will buy a spare Quickmill part and make my own bottomless portafilter on my lathe and milling machine.

Love this basket for Quickmill Silvano Evo January 2, 2017
Reviewer: Gwendolyn M from MO United States  
I love the crema and flavor that results when using this Precision basket on my Quickmill Silvano Evo. Wish I could find a precision basket for the stock portafilter on my Silvano.

Reviewer: Jeffrey Weaver from Springboro, OH United States  
I use this for every shot.  I have only used the spouted portafilter once.

Great portafilter September 17, 2016
Reviewer: David Bigham from Oklahoma City, OK United States  
Now I can see the flaws in my tamping and grinding.  With this bottomless portafilter I can see exactly where and when I encounter channeling.  When I don't prepare things just right I see little shots of water spraying out of one of the tiny holes. I'm sure this was happening before but I could never see it.  The basket on this portafilter holds a bit more coffee than my previous double basket.
