What are the Drawbacks of a Rancilio Silvia Bottomless Portafilter? How to Use It?
Rancilio Silvia Bottomless Portafilter has a couple of drawbacks. The first drawback is the price. But as for its price, this little gadget will set you back a hundred bucks. And if you already have a fancy espresso machine and grinder, then it might be a relatively small cost. Its second drawback is the rim. Because the edge around the bottom of the portafilter is sharp enough to cut you, you’ll want to be careful when cleaning. Previously, I gave myself a pretty good gash as I was wiping it down. Not pretty! Be careful!
Rancilio Silvia Bottomless Portafilter Vs. Spouted Portafilter
Taking aside its drawbacks, I get that much more satisfaction when I put my old spouted portafilter away and use the Rancilio Silvia Bottomless Portafilter exclusively. And it also takes a little extra care and sometimes a little extra cleanup if I compare it with my old spouted portafilter. Above all things, I get much more satisfaction when I pull an excellent shot of espresso.
