    Naked Portafilters

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just wondering what the advantage, if any, is of having a naked (bottomless) portafilter? Is it just so you can see the coffee coming out to make youtube videos? :P

    Read the forums on CS about this... Been asked and answered many times before... http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1248646363

    It is a very good training aid to assist you in your search for problems and getting consistant results.

    see here for a good explination. http://www.home-barista.com/naked-extraction.html

    and you get it all come out straight.. no contacting old crap you forgot to clean.

    I think it should be standard equipment for CSers. difficult to tell if you are getting channeling or spurters otherwise

    kewl, thanks but searching for naked group handle only brings up two different posts and neither of them say anything useful, one is just someone selling one of them. search seems to suck, maybe thats why people keep asking the same questions here? *;D

    Make sure you click on the "Search" tab at the top of the page.
    Dont use the quick search window on the right.
    Also be sure to set the timeframe for the search as the default is only 1 week.

    As per my first link..

    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1248646363

    This explaines how to use the search features and as TG said... If you dont change the defaults or look at the settings you will get little..

    See section 4 for the full detauls...

    Then *my second link takes you to a great explination and guide as to Naked..
