What are the advantages of having a bottomless portafilter basket?

This tool can assist the barista to make perfect adjustments to the grind and tamp and is also a fantastic learning tool for the home user who wishes to perfect the art of espresso extraction.
What are you looking for?
Improper tamping and grind size can lead to channeling. What is channeling? Basically, it occurs when water seeps through cracks in the coffee puck. The resulting brew is thin and “under-extracted”. Users will want to look for blond streaks in the gush of espresso. When observing the puck following the extraction, users can look for holes where the channeling happened.
