Ask a Question
1. It helps you practice your dosing and tamping technique. You'll be able to directly see if grounds are accumulating in one particular spot, or if your tamp was uneven. This has definitely helped me diagnose failed shots in the past. Looking underneath as the shot is being pulled helps you see directly "what's going on."
2. It's easy to remove and change baskets. I find it much easier to pop out and replace baskets without a bottom. You can simply push the basket, and it'll pop right out, rather than having to pry it out.
3. It's gorgeous to see the "honey-drip" as the shot begins to drop, and to see it extract and change over the 25-35 seconds. Purely aesthetic here :)
Overall, it seems many professional baristas and shops are using these bottomless portafilters, but as far as I can tell, there is no technical or discernible difference. It's just preference and maybe a bit of fashion. Hope this helps!
