A bottomless portafilter for E61 machines. Included with the portafilter is a precision triple insert basket. These baskets are made by IMS, not VST


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

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.
