  • Which Lelit filter is for pods?

    Greetings, snobs
    Total newbie here but doing ok with Lelit combi 42. I just can't work out which filter to use for single shots. It comes with the big double shot and the blind one and the single and presumably the one for pods but which is which? Can anybody tell me if the shallowest one is for pods? Thank you in advance for any advice you may have.
    best regards,
    cutho

    Generally a single basket is used for pods.

    Though re-reading your message it looks like you're not sure which filter is which?

    The blind filter is the one without any holes in it, the single is the smaller of the other two.

    Generally it's recommended to use a double for everything (assuming you're using ground coffee), and just dump one shot. They tend to be more forgiving of grind/dose/tamp.

        Thanks jbrewster - I was just having trouble differentiating between the two singles. But I phoned Charlie and he told me the smaller of the two is the pod filter. Actually my single shots were pretty good!

              Heya!

              Were you there today? You're right I got HEAPS out of it - I really was flying blind before. Finally GOT the foam thing and later pulled best ever shots after my beauty nap - man I haven't seen 7am on a Saturday morning for decades!

                Hi all. It's been a while since my last post. As I also have the Lelit Combi, I'm now surprised to find that the smaller filter is for pods!!!! If that's the case, then how do I get a respectable shot with the double basket if it's only half loaded? Anyway, it's always made superior pulls with the double over the single, and I got to the point of looking at an aftermarket single basket/filter but to no avail.

                By the way, when using your search function, when I type in Lelit and pods together I will then get 'all posts' that contain Lelit, not just Lelit and pods; that makes it tedious to do specific searches. I say that because in the past when asking you guys questions I've had one or 2 members on my case for not doing a search first - naughty, naughty me.
