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.

The La Marzocco Bottomless Portafilter fits all of the La Marzocco commercial machines, including the GS3.

Excellent service and portafilter April 24, 2016
Reviewer: Vince Duperron from Los Gatos, CA United States  
The portafilter performs flawlessly.  It is stainless steel so coffee does not stick.  It rests flat on the counter for precise tamping.

Chris Coffee is always a pleasure to work with and this transaction was no exception.

Reviewer: Thompson Hayner from Acton, MA United States  
Not the cheapest portafilter around but quite possibly the best (certainly the best I've seen).
