    Synesso baskets

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    guys a friend down in melbourne just brought a silvia and got what he thinks was a synesso baskets with it too. But hes not sure they are actually Synesso baskets. How do you kow? The standard Rancilio ones have Rancilio ones have their name stamped on it, do the Synesso ones??
    Hes wanting to Pullman tamper made up for it. What size do you get made- is it 58mm, 58.5mm?? I suggested he send in the baskets to Greg when he places the order, but he isnt keen, he wants to use them. :o :o

    Tell him to order a basket with the tamper.
    The extra cost is minimal and he wont be without a basket while he waits.

    Re: Synesso baskets

    Mine dont
    That is to say there is no identifying marks on them

    You need to measure the inside diameter very accurately with digital callipers

    Please see this page for very in-depth info

    Measure the top because the basket tapers in towards the bottom ever so slightly and in any case the tamper only gets pressed in from 5mm to 10mm in depth

    These are instructions from the Pullman site

    * Place the internal measurement fingers of the callipers inside the basket
    * Open out the callipers and wriggle them up and down slightly while trying gently to open the callipers as far as they will go, making sure the fingers are vertical and parallel with the inside of the filter basket.
    * Take the reading when the callipers wont open any more with gentle force
    * If your basket has a ridge for the portafilter spring to lock in to, take measurements both just above and just below the ridge
    * Take 6 readings of each measurement, rotating the basket about 30 degrees each time. When you submit your order, include the smallest measurement from both above and below the ridge.
