Hello!

When filled with water should an espresso basket not let water through it all or drip?

I've done comparisons between the included Breville 54mm and an amazon bottomless portafilter that came with a basket and noticed the amazon held water A LOT better but still let water through without pressure.

When I stop my shot, 4-5g of water drains out making it a little tricky to dial.

Thanks!
