When you start to get serious about espresso extraction, you quickly realise how it really is both a fine art and a science. Small differences in your grind setting or tamp can yield very different flavours in the cup, and sometimes tracing those back to root causes can be difficult. One of the biggest culprits in compromised espresso quality is channeling - where water doesn't flow evenly through the espresso puck. That's where a 'naked' or 'bottomless' portafilter comes in.

This ergonomic bottomless portafilter is from Rancilio themselves, and will both look and fit perfectly with a Rancilio Silvia. By foregoing the spouts at the bottom of a regular portafilter, a home barista can have a much better view of how evenly the water is flowing through the coffee. This allows for adjustments to be made for that optimal extraction.

Because the Rancilio Silvia uses a standard 58mm, E61 head, this portafilter can actually be used on many other espresso machines as well. Even better, it can fit various different baskets, including precision baskets like VSTs.
