    My Atomic basket modification

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    When I posted recently about the forthcoming Otto machine (a stainless-steel espresso machine derived from the old Atomic but heavily modified), I was told in an answer about the Atomic replicas made by Sorrentina (
    I took a look at the site and ordered one of their replacement Atomic espresso double-shot baskets -- stainless steel, deeper than the original and with much finer holes.
    The result is just great -- Atomics coffee tastes sweeter, but the bigger difference is in the extra steaming strength caused, I guess, by the build-up in pressure caused by the smaller holes in that new basked. The new basket is worth the few dollars just for the huge improvement in steaming performance, which makes the Atomic certainly the equal of my Sunbeam 6910 and La Pavoni.

    Pics would be nice for those of us that have an Atomic in the Arsenal.

    the baskets we are now using in the atomics are the breville / sunbeam ones

    1 cup ESP4/51
    2 cup ESP4/78
    $12.95 ea + postage
    the punched holes are smaller and will take a finer grind
