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.

Great compliment to an amazing machine! April 2, 2015

Very high quality. Bottom is completely chrome plated so it won't mar your grinder fork or tamping surface. Only negative I've noticed is that the bottom isn't cut wide enough to accommodate a LM triple basket completely. I don't use LM triples anyways so it's a non issue with me. Easily fits all other baskets I own including Synesso 18g ridgeless triples.
