About this deal

Proper cleaning and compatibility are crucial for optimal coffee extraction, regardless of the filter type. A faster flow rate means you can grind finer. Grinding finer will increase your extraction. Higher extraction theoretically leads to more flavor in your shot. I say “theoretically” because more extraction can mean more bitter compounds, but generally, people prefer higher extraction. A steam wand spray removes finer particles from the filter’s surface. You can just steam it in a milk pitcher with your espresso machine.

The pre-infusion will mostly solve this problem by dumping a small amount of water at a low pressure on the coffee bed, before the extraction. However, the water will still pour in streams from the shower head, and there are still a lot of chances to get channeling. The third change with a paper filter is cleanliness. I have less spraying on my bottomless portafilter using a paper filter. I love bottomless filters to see the flow and easier cleaning, but the spraying is constant issues. Many consumer espresso machines, like Breville, are set to high pressure, which inevitably causes spraying. The more even flow of a paper filter greatly reduces this spraying. A good way to detect any issues with your coffee extraction and whether it’s channelling or not is to use a naked portafilter. It’s a relatively recent innovation in specialty coffee. I think the tiny brand Bplus from Taiwan may have been the first one to introduce the concept, although I may be wrong.Theoretically, I can see how it should disperse the water more evenly. However, it’s difficult to predict how the water actually flows inside the basket when it’s under pressure. You can use paper instead of a screen. Use scissors to cut baking paper in the shape of the coffee basket and once you’re done with tamping you can put it above the coffee grounds. No matter how well you did your tampering, if the coffee basket is damaged (which happens due to excessive usage or when not following the best practices the manufacturers recommend). As a result, the water finds the easiest way to run through the coffee grounds and (as you might have guessed it) this leads to espresso channelling. WDT, or Weiss Distribution Technique, is a method of evenly distributing the coffee grounds in the portafilter basket. This technique involves using a fine needle to stir the coffee grounds, ensuring that they are evenly distributed and free of clumps. Not necessarily, but there’s no harm in buying one, especially if you’re into trying different coffee beans. Books about latte art

Replace the screen: If the screen becomes damaged or heavily corroded, it's important to replace it to ensure the quality of your espresso. Stainless steel filters are on the surface very similar to Aeropress steek filters. However, they have a smaller diameter and are designed to fit your basket. They offer a couple of advantages over mesh filters: For paper filters, the answer is a stronger yes – they do improve espresso. However, it’s a nuanced answer with a few different effects to explain. Make sure you follow the guidelines for brewing espresso with your coffee machine to avoid damaging the coffee grounds basket in mint condition. Portafiltersmm Mokapot filters work well for regular-sized portafilters, while Aeropress filters aren’t the ideal size, even though they are commonly recommended. Using a WDT tool can help to improve the quality of your espresso shot by ensuring an even extraction. This technique is particularly useful when working with freshly roasted coffee, which tends to be more prone to clumping. Pre-Infusion Some people think they are less efficient at dispersing the water stream than the mesh filters and more prone to channeling. We see this time and time again the coffee industry ‘steals’ ideas and concepts from the wine industry. So, similar to wine-tasting glasses, there are tasting cups for coffee, ideal to taste coffee and identify unique features of different coffee beans. There is a secondary effect that home baristas have observed when using stainless steel screens. The final coffee cup will have more body. Now this is interesting for a brewing method that is known for its body.
