FILTER BASKET INCLUDED!
This 54mm bottomless portafilter was designed to work with the Barista Express, Barista Pro, Barista Touch, Bambino Plus, Infuser and Duo-Temp Pro.
Our bottomless portafilters are made from 304 stainless steel, and all natural sandalwood handles.
Bottomless (aka naked) portafilters are an essential tool for identifying and correcting extraction problems that cannot be seen with standard spouted portafilters. Issues such as under- or overdosing, inconsistent or incorrect grind size, uneven tamp pressure, or unevenly distributed grinds, can all cause improper extraction.
One of the most common visible signs that you're experiencing extraction issues is through channeling (or spurting), which cannot be seen with a standard spouted portafilter. Exposing the bottom of your portafilter basket will allow you to witness these extraction issues first hand, providing an opportunity to diagnose and improve the quality of your shots.
PLEASE NOTE: Channeling and spurting can be very messy, but are EXTREMELY common. This is not a defect of the portafilter itself, but instead is your coffee telling you that there's room for improvement in your preparation process (grind size, tamping, distribution, etc.).

I really love this portafilter. Very well-made and aesthetically pleasing
Exactly what I'd expect from a bottomless portafilter. A bit pricey, but well-made.
My portafilter came with a scratch on the polished finish. The wood handle had a gouge in it, and another spot that looks like a defect in the clear coat. The handle also has a slight curve to it, so the wood must have warped after being turned on the lathe. The handle was also loose when it arrived, and kept coming loose when using it. I had to put thread-locker on the thread to keep it from loosening. I hate paying full price for B-grade stock. I also hate that it won't sit flat on the counter top. It rolls over to one side. They should extend the front or part of the sides so that it will lay flat when you set it down. And add some thread-locker to the handle.
Crema makes awesome products. This is helping me get my espresso dialed in!
The experience is very good so far. The fit in the machine is perfect. The wood handle feels very nice in hand. Overall feels like a very solid construction. Nothing bad to say
