    Where to buy online baskets for the Breville BES820

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi snobbers :)

    Im in Darwin, NT and I find it hard to find any good local knowledge - there seems to be no Breville spare parts agent here either.

    Im looking for some non-pressurised baskets for the BES820. *Id prefer not to drill out mine, as my wife will probably still want to use them until she feels comfortable with the "new" ones.

    Can anyone recommend where I can purchase baskets online for this machine? Im happy for sponsors to chime in and say "I sell them"!! *Ive heard (one this site) that these ones will do:

    Bar Italia ESP 4/51 1-2 cup non- pressurised basket
    Krups (not sure what kind)

    Another question: is it worth buying a generic 1-2 cup basket if Im making a lot of singles? *Ive heard that the coffee shouldnt be too far from the inlet.

    And finally, one of the Breville group handles that come with the new BES860 would be nice - anyone know if theyre interchangeable with the BES820? *(Its the one with two "waterfalls" that let you see the coffee as its falling)...

    Thanks heaps!

    Try Sponsor FIX

    Other than that - Give Sparkys at 7 Hudson st, Albion in Brisbane a call... They are agents for SB and a number of other domestic machines and can USUALLY get what you need..

    hi iaindb
    we sell breville, sunbeam, saeco, krups and delonghi parts on our evil bay site,

    we also have a delonghi 51mm single and double filter, (single floor) for the same price as the breville.

    the new BES 860 uses a 53mm filter and is not compatable with other machines

    Really? *I just measured my group handle and its at least 53mm, that is if Im measuring in the right place. *Have a look and tell me what you think:



    Given that, are there any particular part numbers I should be looking at?

    Thanks heaps!

    if Im measuring in the right place
    The quoted measurements are the inside diameter of the filter basket - the group handle will be sized to fit the basket.

    Ah, youre right (of course!) *The inside filter basket is 51mm for both the single and double.

    thanks.

    cool thanks! *Do you have a single basket to match? *So you think this should probably work with my BES820 (standard disclaimer applying)?

    thanks.

    No we dont carry the single baskets, by choice. Singles are generally a lot more difficult to get a good shot out of, especially in something like these as theyre no deeper than a 58mm basket but smaller in diameter, so theyre probably only a 6g single. Far better to just buy the double and stop the shot a bit shorter - all other things being equal, itll taste richer and less bitter than the same volume of espresso from a single basket too.

    Re: Where to buy online baskets for the Breville BES820

    Sorry to repeat old and thoroughly worn out queries but I am at my wits end dealing with resellers that Breville refer me to over here in Auckland. They either wont order a non-pressurised basket or dont get back to me after saying they are going to find out a price. :(

    Anyone know a simple way of getting my hands on a set over here in NZ? :-/

    Thanks in advance if you can help!

    Try electrical/appliance repair shops. I found one such in Dunedin who knew all about filter baskets and other parts. I also ordered a SS frothing jug and paid considerably less than from any retailer. I had the baskets within 3 days of ordering. There must be a repair shop in Auckland who either has stock or can get stock.

    I hope this helps

    I got mine from harvey norman. product code bsfw100. tell them its a purchasable item and not a spare part and they will find it for you. They have heaps left in their warehouse even though they dont make them anymore.

    Woohoo got it, now I just need a decent steel tamper.

    Still, Im getting some great espressos now with an ultra fine grind and applying a lot of pressure with my aluminium tamper.....Ill be happy with the Breville for a while I think ;)

    I phoned Breville (Australia) this morning and was told that they are currently out of stock. They are expecting more in at the end of next month.
