    Breville Ikon owners? - what part is this?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I picked up a second hand BES400 Breville ikon. It came with pressurised baskets which I will replace as soon as I find a supplier, but the machine came with what looks to be 2 filter baskets, but with no holes? what are they? No mention of them in the manual?

    Surely they arent an espresso cup ??

    If they are shallow they are probably blind filters for backflushing.

    Any chance of some pictures?

    Here is a photo, I have two of them. in the photo is a top and side view, next to the portafilter loaded with a basket.

    it is smaller in diameter than the basket, so suspect it is a ring-in, a very poor espresso cup?

    I think you should ring the Breville help line and see if someone there can help. Youve got us intrigued now ;)

    Re: Breville Ikon owners? - what part is this?

    First thought was that the previous owner improvised them as blind filter for backflushing purposes??

    I would say they arent part of the kit and the owner might have thought they were. You can do with them what you will.

    No chance of asking the previous owner?
