Set of all four basket sizes
Buy all four sizes and save 20%.
If the holes in your basket are not exactly the same size, high pressure water during espresso making will rush toward the bigger holes, causing channeling and side extraction. Your coffee will taste weak and bitter.
You'd be surprised to find out that even expensive espresso machines have neglected this little piece of metal, and manufacture it using cheap, inexact methods.
If you get the hole size just right, you get a gorgeous, full mouthfeel. You'll also see a kind of chocolate-powder top to your shot, from the right amount of smaller particles, called "fines", making their way into your drink.
Holes that are too big cause coffee particles to flow out of the basket into your cup, making it feel muddy on the tongue. Holes that are too small cause clogging.
We recommend you use a tamper with a 58.5mm base, because that will eliminate the untamped ring that a less close-fitting tamper produces.
Fits most 58mm portafilters. Known to work with machines from Breville, Sage, La Marzocco, Nuova Simonelli, Slayer, Synesso, Faema, La Cimbali, Rancilio.
