    Because its quite sexy to watch the pour as it emerges from the basket

    Plus its a good tool to learn if youre getting the Tamp right

    OK thought it might be to fit a bigger basket although you would only be able to make one cuppa at a time.

    two reasons for me:
    1) improvement in taste when using a double basket for one coffee
    2) using it as a tool to see how my technique is going

    yep, all of the above, plus easier to clean, no residue on the bottom of the PF to clean up.

    Cheers

    If you take pride in your coffee-making skills and are aiming for consistent, quality shots a naked PF is a great and unforgiving tool for self-improvement. In particular it will highlight problems with your dosing, distribution and tamping technique, evidenced by an uneven flow through the floor of the basket. I highly recommend it.
