    Hi All, Haven't had my Gaggia Classic and Mazzer SJ for very long, and im still learning for sure and today I pulled my first shot with a naked portafilter and I thought it was going really well and then boom disaster strikes! So im thinking, finer grind but what about tamping? Does this shot...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and have already found lots of useful information. I just putting together my home setup, pretty sure I'm going for an ECM. During my research I have noticed that many use a bottomless portafilter, is this something that is recommended to finesse my technique or should...

    Hi we have two ECM PF handles, a double and single spout... only the double spout really ever gets used, with the single just with the blind filter permanently attached. I was wondering how easy it would be to grind out the bottom of the PF, and if there is anyone on here who is particularly...

    I'm selling a naked portafilter for a La Pavoni Millennium. It comes with the spring clip but without a basket. It's about five years old and has been lightly used (about 200 shots). The handle is stuck to the portafilter. You should be able to unscrew it, but I can't. Obviously this doesn't...

    I'm looking to either sell this (I'll say £40 plus delivery) or swap for another naked portafilter (no basket needed) if anyone bought one but isn't into it. I never really use the spouted one so I'd rather have a spare naked one to go with my current one. Photos can be sent tomorrow if need...
  12. Coffee Lounge
    After reading plenty of posts, watching plenty of instructional videos and over a good dozen attempts at using a naked portafilter, I'm still struggling to avoid coffee spraying everywhere. Now I'm assuming it's down to a combination of the grid (using a 'hacked' delonghi), tamping, and the...

    My new bottomless portafilter has just arrived for my Lelit PL60. The only thing is there is a notch cut in to the rim. As the basket sits on top and mates with the grouphead seal I don't see much point to it. Or is there a point?

  16. Gaggia Forum
    I recently bought a Gaggia CLassis (older one not the new one) and it came with the pressurised filters. Looking to replace so I can get a better pour but wondered what people recommended? I really like the naked style / bottomless ones...

    Selling my home coffee setup due to upgrade. Gaggia baby class with Silvia steam wand, cosmetically not at its best but mechanically perfect. I bought it from a forum member about a year ago, in the same condition but without the steam wand. Just had a backflush and clean, new shower plate...

    I'm after a good portafilter for my machine. i have one already, but it cups around the base of the basket far too much. When using an 18g basket the outer droplets that form always end up running around the rim and down the bloomin handle! What a mess!!! looking at pics online, others seem to...

    I'm selling a bottomless PF with non-pressurised double basket and deep blank basket (both from Happy Donkey). It's not had much use (truth be told, I don't think I've ever used the double basket) so it's in great condition. £25 for the lot, which includes P&P. Picture of the blank basket to...
