    Un-pressurised basket to suit Breville ES800

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi, Im a newbie here at CS :)

    I recently got my hands on the Breville ES800 espresso machine and after reading here that it is recommended to ditch the pressurised basket that came with it to the un-pressurised one.

    I think the basket/PF size is 51mm? *correct me if Im wrong.

    I also noticed there are 2 types.....one from Breville and Krups?
    Which one is better?

    Most importantly.....where can I get my hands on these baskets???
    I am in Melbourne by the way.

    Lastly I am after a tamper to suit too *:)

    Cheers

    Your local small appliance repair/parts store should be able to order you in the unpressurised baskets if they dont have any in stock.

    Breville dont make a unpressurised basket for the 800ES.
    They do have an unpressurised basket for the Bar Italia which they suggest might fit.
    The Krups baskets, part number MS0907163, work really well and tend to be the option most, including myself, go for.

    From personal experience theyre pretty difficult to find at the moment.
    Dont bother with Krups themselves (or their contacts), you wont get a reply.
    You might have luck at a small appliance repair store but you might also end up on a wild goose chase.

    As ive mentioned before, i didnt bother chasing one around instead bought one from Pullman.
    Postage costs make it a little expensive given its such a small item but personally i preferred to pay the shipping rather than waste time chasing one around town.

    Thats a bit tricky.
    Ideally youd want to wait to get your basket and then take it around with you to find a tamper but even then its difficult to find a good fit for a 51mm.

    If you dont plan on upgrading your machine, invest in a Pullman tamper, theyre expensive but Greg makes them to fit the basket perfectly and theyre incredibly good quality.
    Im going to upgrade within the next year so i chose to hold off on the Pullman tamper until then, instead i bought the 51mm convex tamper from another of our sponsors, Di Bartoli.
    Its stainless steel and relatively heavy so its a significant upgrade on the plastic crap one gets with the 800ES, its also inexpensive and its an excellent fit (not perfect, but the best one will get unless you get one specifically made for you).

    Good luck with it all.

    Purchased a tamper and the krups basked from Pullman in the last few weeks for exactly the same machine you have.

    Coffee is much better now - still got loads to learn but it was money extremely well spent.

    Basket fits well, the tamper is amazing and Im finally getting better roasts with my coretto.

    This has caused two issues for me though.

    First - I find myself getting increasingly disappointed with cafes and there offerings.

    Second - while home roasting saves me cash this journey is going to cost me a whole chunk of Lira (am from NZ after all) in the next few years updating my equipment...

    Great fun tho..

    Does the Krups unpressurised basket fit tightly onto the Breville 800 PF?

    On the Pullman website there is a pic of the basket but looks taller.

    Mine did - it is a slightly taller but the lower sides of the basket slope inwards.

    Well I managed to source a Breville ESP4/51 1-2 cup unpressurised basket in a service centre near my house and fits extremely well :)

    Price was $14....although I saw another place selling for $11 but they didnt have in stock.

    Not sure how good this one is compared to the Krups basket so Ill play around with it for the time being.

    Anyone else using ESP4/51 basket?

    I have used the Krupps basket but prefer to use a modified breville basket (get someone to machine the bottom of your basket off to make it un-pressurised). There are several posts on here describing how to do it. The main advantage is that, c.w. the Krupps basket, it holds more coffee. Also, it fits slightly better in the group handle and the original basket has the raised lip on the top of it (it fits better with the original group seal).
