Oh my goodness, that is some beautiful espresso! I've been a full-time barista for nearly 8 years and I have to say, the naked portafilter makes the best espresso, as your picture clearly shows. Very nice work.

They allow you to see how the coffee is pouring so you can make changes if its channeling. They can make a mess but they do look cool.
