Product Description

If you haven't seen the coloration that comes out of a bottomless portafilter, you are really missing out. This unique way to extract shots with the 58mm Bottomless Portafilter for Rocket Giotto and Rocket Cellini models offers a great view into the process as rich hues of brown come waterfalling out from underneath your brewhead unit.

How the 58mm Bottomless Portafilter Works

  • Lightly fill the portafilter basket to the top
  • Use your finger to gently even out the grounds
  • Lightly press the tamper into the grounds and find a good center point
  • Evenly apply approximately 30 lbs of pressure to the grounds
  • Tap the side of the portafilter to reveal loose grounds
  • Lightly tamp these loose grounds into place
  • Sit back and enjoy one of the coolest looking effects in espresso extraction

Great Portafilter!!!Review by William

Ok...I was on the fence on this one. Why do I need this??? It's gotta be a gimmick!!!
Just buy it and don't question why you are doing this crazy purchase...just do it!
I promise you...it will take your coffee experience to a whole other level. I'm hooked and i am sure you will be too. I'm also a bit more wired as it comes with a triple shot basket. You can change it out, but I just really like the taste of the triple shot. Just so you know... I never once had a problem with coffee shooting all over me and all the other horror stories associated with this portafilter. Just remember to have the proper grind for your (fresh) coffee, correct tamp and then Enjoy!

I looked at these bottomless portafilter for years and dismissed the whole idea as a gimmick. I was wrong. Yes, opening up the portafilter gives you a clearer picture of your grind and tamp (and your screwups in that department), so this is a teaching tool of sorts. But more importantly, allowing your shot to flow freely wherever your shower screen and gravity takes it somehow yields a shot with an enormous amount of crema you will never see with a conventional portafilter. In addition, because your portafilter basket is not sitting in a closed metal holder, you do not get an accumulation of coffee oil and similar grunge in your portafilter. Cleaning is a snap because other than the accumulation in the basket itself, there really isn't anything to clean.

Just one downside - on occasion you will get some 'strays' that find their way through the puck. These may just make the inside of your shot glass or cup look funky, or they may even create little aerosol jets in odd directions - on your counter, all over your shiny Rocket machine, perhaps on you if you happen to be standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not a big deal, and just "nature's way of telling you something's wrong" with your technique, that your grinder burrs are getting worn and not giving you the most uniform grind in the world, or tipping up some other flaw.

Not sure there is any other single accessory you can buy - for any price, and certainly for under a hundred bucks - that will so radically improve your shots and your espresso making experience. Get one! (Posted on 9/2/2015)

I using for single shot with the single portafilter basket now. For back-flashing, I use permanently the single portafilter (comes with the Rocket) with the blind basket so no need to switch the baskets. (Posted on 11/10/2014)

I'm very happy with my purchase....everyone should get one of these portafilters! It has made the Crema thick and rich compared to my double or single spout portafilters! I find it very forgiving especially with an over pressured tamp. Good price,good quality and very nice people to deal with...I certainly will deal with Seattle coffee gear again!
If you don't own one,you're doing yourself a great disservice when pulling an espresso shot or making a cappuccino or latte!
Thank you SCG (Posted on 10/9/2014)
Total necessity Review by Z@K!

I bought this because I thought it looked cool when it pours, but it turns out to be an absolutely necessary component in making the perfect shot of espresso. It allows you to fine tune by letting you see if you are grinding your beans too course or too fine (it sprays everywhere when it's too course), or if you are packing your basket too hard. I had no idea what a necessity it was until after I bought it. If you are serious about coffee you must have one of these! (Posted on 5/26/2014)
A must haveReview by Robert

I use the bottomless daily (unless I am pulling the shot into two cups, then I use the double spouted). Great diagnostic tool for adjusting grind or when switching coffee. It also makes it easier to identify when to stop a shot.
This portafilter also allows you to experiment with other filter manufacturers that are deeper than the stock double. (Posted on 4/12/2013)

I got this as part of the package for purchasing a Rocket espresso machine. It is beautiful and matches the single and double portafilters included with the machine. I can believe this item is worth about $70. Commercial quality. (Posted on 9/16/2012)

Started using this portafilter to improve my shot pulls. A little messy when first dialing in a grinder (espresso can shoot everywhere if the grind is too coarse), but once the grind is close to where it should be this item works well to tell you what adjustments need to made.

The feedback I received from this portafilter improved my pulls more than anything else to date.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade, Easy To Clean

Cons:
