    Depends, if youre talking about naked portafilters...Very useful tool to identify dosing, distribution and tamp issues. Also looks impressive when extracting properly.

    As for the other, I think thats best kept in the privacy of your own home.

    You have to be very careful where you place the portafilter, as it tends to get rather hot

    he he - ok now I see what I said could be taken up in a different way - although at my age I wouldnt want anything to interfere with a good cup of coffee!

    I was talking about the cafe in Brisbane - and I saw a post here about special portafilters for naked coffee - just curious...

    Naked Coffee uses naked portafilters to make all of there drinks. They are a very good cafe, you should try them for yourself. ;)

    The "bottomless" or "naked" portafilters are a good tool for diagnosing your dosing/tamping technique.

    Some also say the coffee from them tastes better because it goes directly into the cup and not via a spout.

    I struggled a little with the right words in my previous post roknee (yeah I know, unusual for me).
    I included distribution with dosing in my thoughts.

    i include them in my thoughts too, which makes it damn difficult to concentrate on other less important matters like a thesis *:D
