    Is this a Synesso double or triple basket?

    Hi guys. Ive finally joined after reading plenty of posts and "investing" in a Rancillio Silvia.
    I bought a new Synesso double basket from 5 senses online shop but Im surprised how big it is. It seems to take 50% more grounds (by volume) than the original ridged Rancillio double.
    What do you guys think of the attached photo? Is this a triple, or just a normal Synesso double?

    Cheers!
    Rob

    By the way. it fits in the normal rancillio portafilter.
    Its possible that photo is on a slight angle making the Synesso look even bigger. I can take another pic if it helps. There are no model numbers on the basket.
    I do seem to be getting much lower flow at the same grind.

    Hi Rob, here is my Synesso double up against my Rancillio double. The Rancillio basket measures 23mm high and the Synesso basket measures 25.8mm high. Id say you have a triple.

    Looks like a triple to me. My Synesso is from Pullman and its definitely not quite as high.

    I think weighing the amount of grinds in there might give you a better indication.
