    Portafilter Baskets

    Hi,

    I have a ECM giotto and would like to use the LM single portafilter basket (7g). Does anyone know if it fits?

    Do you know if the basket is a 57mm or 58mm. I have read that 58mm tampers get stuck in this basket. Any ideas?

    Yes- some 58mm tampers will get stuck in the basket due to the contour of the sides. FWIW I personally dont like them as they are sticky and dirty.

    Why not get a Synesso and matching tamper from Greg?

    I will check it out.

    I already have a pullman tamper!

    Cheers,

    Hi Pedro,

    Welcome to CS.

    Some C/Snobs never use a single basket at all, and claim they produce inferior shots to double baskets. There is some good reading by Java B and others in the thread "Synesso 14g and 21g baskets".

    Regards

    The couple of times I tried my single baskets in Silvia the shots were a total disaster so Ive despatched the basket to the back of my coffee cupboard to gather dust.

    Be thankful you dont have one of the old Rancilio Single baskets then! Inside theres almost no recess at all, I reckon they must be a 5-6g basket! Check out the difference
