    Double, tripple, or 8 shot filter basket !!

    :o
    Interesting* 2 group Rancilio on the auction site with one super sized group for making 8 ( EIGHT !) shots* from one PF.
    That thing must have an 80 -100 mm basket and hold 100gms of coffee !
    Ideal if you have a big family !

    Does it come with a custom tamper?

    Thats quite interesting. I wonder how long you should keep the pump on if preinfusing, should it be the same time as a double/triple or longer?

    what youre seeing might be whats known as a hotel group

    see http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1243996246 for someone that has done a resto on a similar rancilio machine a year or 2 ago

    Memories of these things blowing off at pressure...

    Nasty, nasty machines and a shocker of a concept.

    Probably a bottomless....for directly filling a bucket !* ;D

    and yes,.. 9-10 bar on that would generate best part of 1/2 ton* of force trying to break the lugs off the PF !* :o :-[

    I assume they ran at a lower pressure ??
