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 Rancilio Erogonomic Bottomless Portafilter fits all of the Rancilio commercial machines, the Silvia, as well as other E61 group machines. Some examples include:

- Quick Mill Andreja Premium, Anita, Vetrano, Alexia and Silvano
- Izzo Alex and Alex Duetto
- Isomac Millenium, Tea, Rituale, Relax, Zaffiro, and Amica.
- Expobar Office Control, Office Pulser, Office Lever, and Brewtus
- ECM Giotto, Cellini, Rocket, and Giotto Premium
- Grimac and Grimac Valentina

Bottomless Portafilter: Rancilio Ergonomic December 30, 2016
Reviewer: Alex J from Carlisle, PA United States  
Well made portafilter. Good quality finish. Basket is 22 g.
You need to use at least 20 g of coffee to make a good espresso. Works best with 22g of coffee.
Excellent fit on my E-61 group machine, QM Andreja Profiles.

Excellent quality May 21, 2016
Reviewer: Craig Turner from Chapel Hill, NC United States  
I was very pleased with this bottomless portafilter. Well finished and crafted. Fits the standard 58mm E61 perfectly. The handle is extremely comfortable and nicely, ergonomically shaped.  The downward angle of the handle puts the head at a comfortable angle for insertion and removal. I love the stylish Rancilio logo on the end of the handle. It looks great on my new Quick Mill Vetrano. Having a bottomless portafilter is an excellent purchase if you wish to take the next step in examining the quality of your extractions. Highly recommend this portafilter.
