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

I ordered a bottomless portafilter for my Nuova Simonelli Oscar machine and it sprays liquid/coffee out of the top of the portafilter when in use. This does not happen when I use the double spout portafilter. Any idea what the problem might be?
Quintin H on Sep 26, 2014
Best Answer: As you are dialing in your shots with a bottomless portafilter, you may notice that there is a small amount of dripping and spray, which is perfectly normal. Typically if you are getting excess leaking around the gasket, you may be overdosing or using too fine of a grind, so the water is looking for other places to escape. Try experimenting with less grounds and different grind sizes to see what might give you better results. Also, be sure that you are tightening the portafilter firmly onto your unit so that you have a good seal, keeping in mind that your older double spout portafilter may tighten to a different spot on your brew head than a brand new bottomless. Check out the videos we have on our Youtube channel where we brew some bottomless shots and talk about differences between portafilter types!

I have read the bottomless portafilter will not work for the Oscar. Any one know why? Is there going to be one that will work in Oscar?
James F on Nov 28, 2014
Best Answer: Provided that you're getting the bottomless portafilter for the Nuova Simonelli brand for the Oscar, you can certainly use it on the machine, and attain a good seal. Since it has a triple basket, we have found that you may need to tighten it a little bit more, but that's to ensure that solid seal so that water doesn't spurt out around the edges. This one will definitely work with the Oscar.

Our church purchased a Royal Synchro Espresso machine, will this bottomless portafilter fit? I plan on using this portafilter for training baristas. I am a relatively new barista as well and am looking forward to improving our skills and quality of coffee. Thank you, Nancy Davis
Nancy D on Sep 14, 2014
Best Answer: Portafilters are brand and machine specific, as the tab thickness and placement will vary from machine model to model. Unfortunately because we do not offer that brand, I am not sure if this portafilter will fit and I would be hesitant to recommend it without giving it a try. Sorry I can't be of greater assistance on this for you!

Is the handle supposed to be hollow on the end? I can see the bolt on the one I just got because the end-cap doesn't fully cover the handle.
Arion on May 22, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, the end of the handle on this Nuova Simonelli Bottomless Portafilter is hollow and there is unfortunately not a cap at the end.

Hi, would this work with the Elli? Thanks
A shopper on May 11, 2013
Best Answer: 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!

you must use these ! Review by matt
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. (Posted on 5/15/2014)
