    Quick question Breville 800 es

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    does it only come new with pressurised baskets?
    is it dual floor or has it got the disk in the Ghandle that you can just pull out?

    or do you get an unpressurised as well with it in the box?


    thanks

    It only comes with pressurised baskets, which is bad.

    The Breville Fresca BES860 comes with both pressurised and unpressurised baskets and has a built-in conical grinder.

    ...its a pity they dont send both baskets with all their machines.

    Unpressurised baskets are pretty pricey too! Some places sell them for $13 a pop.

    This might help.

    My cousin modified the basket which came with my 800ES by cutting out a portion the lower floor leaving the upper floor intact.

    Result = Unpressurized basket which still fits perfectly into the group handle and much better coffee.

    Basket takes more coffee than the krups basket (which I purchased a few months back).

    IMHO If you have the tools/skill to do this then you get a better result than the krups basket.

    Image of modified basket attached.

    The Fresca BES860 baskets are a different size - they dont fit.

    The Bar Italia ESP 4/51 1-2 cup non- pressurised basket fits pretty well
