    Will the world end or will I damage my machine if I use the IMS Competition baskets I had for my Gaggia in the newly acquired Rancilio Silvia PRO? Specifically, I have the B682TH24.5M and B682TH26.5E. Neither fits in the portafilter that came with the machine due to their height, but I'm going...

    So thinking of Xmas, I was considering adding a few coffee items to my list as A: I'm using the machine daily still, B: i can dictate he item and the price allocation (otherwise MIL insists on buying random crap and this year will be worse than usual) Was going to get the other half a rave...

    Hi, so I'm using my brand new Sage/Breville barista express and loving it, but I've only had the machine for a few weeks at the most and I'm starting to have an issue where when I remove the portafilter, the basket will stay in the group head, this happens with or without coffee inside and...

    What I'm about to say should be obvious to everyone, but although I have owned a Verona for over four years now and used it daily, it has only just occurred to me. I've been experiencing quite a lot lately the spent puck sticking to the screen and the basket coming away empty. It varies, with...

    Hey guys! I have a Gaggia Classic bought in 2016 from the UK. It should be 9403/11. I have a double basket but I don't know whether it is a 14g or 16g basket. Mine has a ridge on the vertical side. I have been dosing 17-18g and flow seems okay, but the taste is bitter. The following video...

    Good day all. I'm thinking a new basket is in order as the one I have with my Classic is the original and now 12 years old so I'm sure it has seen better days. It will be a double basket to hold between 16-18grams if possible. From my basic understanding am I right thinking that a VMS basket is...

    It's time for the yearly maintenance of replacing my shower screen and gasket and was thinking of ordering a new basket as well so I can get free shipping from vendor. For the IMS nanoquartz baskets they have 2 sizes which are labeled as 16/18 and 18/20. If I do 18g shots which one should I go...

    Does anyone have an idea from where we can buy a filter like used in this video? Thank you!

    Hi, I purchased these from CoffeeChap recently for the mrs as she only has single shots. As it turns out she prefers a 18g >28g shot so this is now surplus to requirements. I've only used it twice. Torr 41mm Tamper with African Blackwood handle & LM Strada 7g Basket. Now £45 inc delivery...

    As per title, this is never used and is brand new in box. Haven't added pictures as its pretty self explanatory.

    Hi all, I use an 18g VST basket for my double shots and it works wonderfully, but Mrs Nuuutz likes her coffee weak so only likes a single shot of her decaf. I've been trying in vain to use the single basket on my DB but it makes such a mess on the group head for one, plus tamping seems a bit...
  16. Sage Forum As known many are not really happy with the default single basket coming with the Oracle and DB. This 10g basket is not skewed and so maybe provide better flavour more like a double.
  17. Gaggia Forum
    I have to laugh - I realised in the middle of the night I have been using the wrong basket (pressurised) in my new Gaggia Classic for 2 weeks - no wonder it wasn't quite what I thought All that tamping and weighing... I should have realised immediately, I took the spout off the portafilter and...

    Hey, I am wondering if anyone has a VST 18g basket (mine is ridgeless) and Silvia combination? I just got mine and struggling a bit. Flow in VST is faster than in the stock pf which means I should either grind finer or updose. What I see if I go for the nominal dosage (18g) then I have to...
