    Portafilter Baskets

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi there!

    Just wondering - is it ok to simply put a single basket into a portafilter than can also hold a double and triple baskets?

    Or does the space between the bottom of the basket and the base of the portafilter create certain issues, like potentially increased channeling??

    Thanks for any help :)

    Thats fine, sometimes the basket is too deep for the portafilter, but you wont have that problem with a single basket.

    Single baskets are much harder to use than doubles though, so you may just want to drink doubles or pour into two cups and freeze one for iced coffee.

    Why are single baskets much harder to use than doubles? :)

    Coincidentally, I was just reading this interesting thread on singles.
