Many people out there have spent $3000+ on a Rocket or Domobar, and then suffer average coffee as time takes its toll.
The machine gets leaky and stiff, pressure wanes and control boards forget what their function is :)
Bring it in for a tickle up and mention you've been on the website for your complimentary cleaning salts.
Naked Portafilters & why they rule.
The importance of the extraction to exceptional espresso reached a new level of clarity with the introduction of "bottomless portafilters".
A smart barista will intently watch the stream of espresso pour out during an extraction.
While appearance alone isn't definitive proof of a good cup, it does go a long way in verifying the barista's technique.
We can cut out your handles spouty area, leaving you with “naked” portafilters, and we carry a large range of brand new naked portafilters too.
Ideally, every particle of the ground espresso should be of the same size, and when compressed or tamped into the portafilter basket, it should likewise have no differences in how tightly or loosely it is compressed from side to side or top to bottom.
Although perfection in this regard is impossible, a Crotchless Portafilter can help identify things such as channeling, blonding, tiger striping, among other things.
Channeling is when the water finds it's way through cracks or small inconsistencies in the coffee "puck". This means that the coffee gets an uneven extraction, producing an inferior shot of espresso. Common causes are an uneven tamp, or too much coffee (referred to as overdosing).
So lets learn what is really going on with our distribution and tamping by using nude handles all day every day, like the pros.
