    Why go naked?

    Hi all

    pretty new to the world of coffee snobbery and wanting to know why would you use a naked portafilter?

    Thanks

    It looks cool.

    Oh and you can use it to diagnose tamping problems.

    its a wonderful way to repaint your kitchen floor in a brown colour scheme - especially if you use the 45 degree tamp and macro grind.

    seriously, it does have a different extraction profile and helps you understand your distribution/shot techniques better - but if youre still mastering 30mls/60mls in 25/30seconds, dont bother buying one just yet!

    cheers,

    John.
