What are the advantages of having a bottomless portafilter basket?
A portfilter basket gives users an invaluable opportunity to visualize the immediate espresso extraction and crema. 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.

IMPORTANT: Water quality is a very important aspect of your espresso machine longevity. Water that is too hard will cause limescale buildup, which is the number one reason for operating problems. Too pure water, such as ultra pure RO water or distilled water can cause the machine to overfill, since the water level probe needs some minerals in the water to detect water. Use softened water that is about 50ppm in hardness. More info

PLEASE NOTE: Most machines and grinders are inspected for damage after being shipped from overseas. This means most boxes will have signs of being opened even though they are brand new products. This is done to ensure that the equipment made the international shipment in good condition and working order.

COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT NOTE: Most commercial equipment ships on a pallet and has to be bench tested prior to shipment. For this reason, commercial equipment usually ships out three to five business days after the order is received. Some commercial equipment is also special order and/or has limited availability, so please check with us prior to placing an order. Check terms and conditions page for terms relating to commercial equipment.
