Rancilio: 58mm Bottomless Portafilter
This is a non-branded 58mm bottomless (blind) portafilter, designed to fit all Rancilio machines. Naked portafilters are an excellent training tool, as it’s a great way to monitor your espresso extraction, showing a clear visual of your shot, highlighting any distribution and tamping issues.
As naked portafilters have no lower casing, they can also accommodate much larger baskets (such as VST 22g or Strada 21g), and therefore larger doses of coffee. They also look great in action.
If you're looking for ways to improve extraction on a Rancilio Silvia, this is one of the key elements, alongside a precision basket.
