    Naked PF

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All

    Is there any secret trick to getting the naked pf to flow without springing a leak so to speak.

    or is it the need to get it all right to make it work well?

    But there are techniques, like WDT which may help you.

    I assume you mean springing a leak in the pour not the seal? if water is coming from the sides of the portafilter the gasket may need replacing or the portafilter not locked in far enough.

    If you are getting gushers through the pour and coffee spraying all over the place that is channeling, the pressurised water will always find the least amount of resistance in the puck and If you have everything right this will not happen.

    Different things you do can produce channeling, this link explains it well http://www.ineedcoffee.com/07/naked-portafilter/

    I personally use the weiss distribution technique which reduces the chance of channeling, A decent fitting tamper also helps. The technique can be found here http://www.home-barista.com/weiss-distribution-technique.html

    Nailing channeling on the head puts you on the road to improving your technique and pulling better and more consistent shots.
