    Single or Double basket with Breville Cafe Roma

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    I have cut the second floor of the double basket for my cafe roma, and made stripped my porta-filter so its now naked...

    My question is with a full double basket should I be able to pull a double (60ml or close to it) at the moment I get a max of 30ml before blonding. Is it just a matter of adjusting the grind and/or tamp to get more water thru?

    Or with a very entry level machine like this should I just be content with pulling singles from a doubles worth of coffee?

    Or the third option, should I mod the single basket and aim to pull singles with the correct amount of coffee?

    Cheers

    YES... If ya want my opinion..


    What is ya double.. *Your double may not be the same as others...

    However you should be able to get at least a great 3/4 from your double rather than a 1/2 (ie. single).

    Ignore the NUMBERS... *Forget them..

    Go for whats in the cup...
