    Filter Basket Funnel

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

    Recently linked from this site there was a YouTube movie showing the use of a pump espresso machine. *(I cant find the reference)

    In the picture there was what looked like a propriety silicone fairly short funnel (pict was red) that fitted to the top of the basket in the PF handle. *Allowing a controlled overfill.

    Now my wifes approval rating (WAP) is slanted heavily towards a tidy kitchen. *My yoghurt carton funnel fails many times as it is too tall and gets snagged on the dispenser or splits!.

    Our sponsors do not seem to have these - I hope I am wrong. * *I would be grateful for any direction

    hopefully

    It was a link to Orphan Espresso in the USA, they are the manufacturers of them. They are aluminium and sized to suit various machines including 58mm.

    thats them I am adding a Pav sized one soon when I order a few bits from them. I have made up a roughy from a yogurt tub to try the fluffy grind procedure with light tamp but it is still awkward.

    Actually... ::)

    I rather like the Yellow Silicone ones that KK found; could be cut down to suit pretty well any basket by the looks of em... 8-)

    Yes I do that - but it ends up a fairly flimsy affair. *
    And maybe thats all I can do.
    It would be nice to have something better. But better may not fit.

    Ah! Well just a thought.

    Flimsy, yes, but mine has been in use for a year and is proving very durable.

    I used one of the translucent yoghurt cups rather than the white ones with printing--could they be less fragile?

    Re: Filter Basket Funnel

    Thanks all
    Quick foot note

    I have settled for a plastic disposable cup top and bottom cut off and a strip of white electricians tape around the outside to give some permanence - also the tape grips the basket quite firmly

    Looks good, works well, durable as well.
    WAR high :)
