    Hi greenman....

    The synesso baskets are just like any other basket as far as dosing is concerned..... just enough grounds so that, after tamping, the top of the puck just touches, or almost touches the showerscreen.

    The main thing with our fitted tampers is you will require one - and only one - tamp.... and these baskets are perfectly round.... so with a fitted tamper no grounds around the edge requiring a tap to settle and a retamp....

    You will need to refine your technique a bit (especially if you are a partially fill, light or even heavy tamp, fill to level and tamp again etc sort of barista)... all you need is one tamp, you have machined rings to tell you when you are tamping squarely and how deep you have tamped.....

    So really just get your dose correct and all else should fall into place.

    Robin.
