Do you ever use anythng besides your bottomless and if so why?

I learned on a my naked PF and just never bothered switching. Just wondered if I am missing out on something doing it that way.

 
Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

I pretty much use the single spout PF only. It is easy to put the cup in the correct spot when it is early and dark in the morning :) I use the naked very rarely, but probably for the same reason as you (just never bothered switching). It might be just me, but I prefer the taste from a spouted as compared to the naked. Or maybe it is my technique. My spouted handles also match the knobs, but the naked doesn't (different manufacturer). So it's  a matching decision too :)

In the FWIW mode, I have four portafilters for my Elektra:  one bottomless, one single, one double, and one double but with the narrower LM spout.  The first shot of the day is always bottomless.  The rest of the day, it's the regular spouts for capps and lattes, and the bottomless for straight shots . . .

Just curious as to why you use your naked for espressos only and spouted for capps and lattes?

I never considered some might change the PF during the day or for different types drinks. I was thinking peeps might use the bottomless as a traning tool then toss it the back of junk drawer once the skill was developed. I am not sure I would want to wait to heat up a different porta filter for a drink change. Heck more often than not I get the basket ready outside the PF or use a ghetto funnel in a hurry just to keep the PF temp up.

Making the wife or guest a capp or something turns into an excuse for me to use the surplus to make myself a nice tight macchiato, waste not want not. >:) Our Duetto is subject to make any number  different types of drinks so I don't think I could make switching the PF around work for me but I am for sure intrested in the response.

To start with, let's not take that too literally.  I should have said, "The rest of the day, it's MOSTLY the regular spouts for capps and lattes, and MOSTLY the bottomless for straight shots . . ." In other words, it's not an absolute.

As to the why:  when I'm making a milk drink, I am steaming at the same time as I'm pulling the shot.  I'm keeping an eye on both the milk and the shot.  But when I'm pulling a straight shot, my eye is solely on the shot itself.  Even though I have a full-automatic (aka volumetrically dosed) machine, I still stop on blonding.

That said, in the FWIW Dept., shots from a bottomless portafilter taste different, IMHO, than from a regular one.  I still have yet to decide which I prefer; they are both delicious -- just different.

Cheers,
Jason
