    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.

    how so? what is the difference between this and a normal one?

    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.

    portafilter is absolutely correct! look it up before you post

    portafilter??? what language is that? filter holder, perhaps?
