The portaflon - a coated portafilter for better tasting espresso.

What is a portafilter?

A portafilter attaches to an espresso machine, and carries a tamped puck of coffee with its coffee basket. It is usually made of brass, and also includes a plastic or wooden handle. The portafilter forms a seal with the espresso machine’s gasket, and directs high-pressure hot water through the coffee puck. - Wikipedia

Portaflon is a non-stick coating. This portafilter, coated in portaflon, there will be no metallic taste to coffee nor will you accumulate as much sediment. The cleaner, non-oxidized portafilter will ensure a better coffee experience.

I look forward to seeing one of these babies in action! Prototype or not, I am hoping someone grabs one to test out :)
