    Unpressurised basket & tamper for Ikon

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    need some help!

    Ive got Ikon, had it for about a month, my coffees not getting any better, well slightly, but still not creamy as I would like it. I should look into my beans too but I am just trying out different ones at the moment so, meanwhile, Ive been reading about the importance of tamping and unpressurised basket! I am still using the ones that came with Ikon and its not very pretty..

    Where could I buy these from? Reasonably cheap unpressurised basket for Ikon (krups? Ive read a lot about those.) And a good tamper that will fit the basket.. I think..

    I am in Sydney, I dont mind driving a little to get them but would prefer online! well anything at the moment..

    Any help would be appreciated!

    You have to start with the basics.
    That means the beans.

    Are they fresh?
    What grinder do you have?

    I have/had a BCG450.. broken at the moment.. :( might see if I can it fixed or going to buy sunbeam em0480 I guess..

    I am going to try the sample ones from coffeesnob here next time..
    so well see how that goes..

    and while I get the grinder sorted/ buy beans I wanted to get the basket & the tamper too..

    Hello Min,

    We got our unpressurised baskets from the Breville factory shop in Pyrmont. *They had 2 sizes and were $5 each. *(Its only a block or so from the fish market so that might take the pain out of the drive, plus you could take that dropped grinder in for them to look at *;) )

    Another CS member, Astranomical, posted a really good summary of the Ikon, including part numbers of various baskets that fit, it is here: *

    Cheers - Carrie *:)
