A shopper asked: What is the value of using a bottomless portafilter versus non-bottomless? Does it enhance flavor or is it just aesthetics? May 17, 2013

Beuford D: I had difficulty getting the grind / tamp adjustment correct ; currently, I have gone back to the non-bottomless porta-filter.
I did like the bottomless from the standpoint of 'style' and watching the 'crema' develop.
I will try the bottomless again - I'm getting better at judging how to adapt the grind setting / volume of the grind / tamp pressure.

Thomas Y: The big benefit of a bottomless portafilter is you can diagnose problems with your technique. Things like channeling and gushing can be seen with a bottomless portafilter by just watching the espresso come out, which means you can know you're doing something wrong and work on it. Jun 4, 2013

Michael S: It allows you to see how well you tamped. I found that I was only able to get good results using the Weiss technique. Well worth the purchase in my opinion. May 17, 2013

David C: I find that it produces more crema, but that may be just an impression.
And as Michael S. pointed out, you'll know if you have (not) tamped properly.

A shopper asked: Hi, would this work with the Elli? Thanks May 11, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: I am not sure that this will work for your machine, as we do not offer Elli machines. Portafilters are generally brand specific, however, and so I would not suggest that this portafilter work with your machine without having it here to test, unfortunately! May 13, 2013

Seriously, these, paired with a VST basket is what you should be using. Who splits shots anymore ? Everything we serve is a double, so I have no reason for a splitter. Also when using a split basket, you shut it off, some will still be in it that will run out, so your out grams will be off if you're pouring onto a scale. These are also way easier to clean , and you can watch tiger striping and when it forms one stream.
