    !!!SOLD!!! - WTT: VST basket 22g for a VST 20g basket

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just bought a near new VST basket 22g from a fellow snobber and received it with great anticipation only to find out it is only just too deep for my PF (ARRRGGHHH!!). So if anyone wants to trade a 20g VST basket for a 22g VST, please let me know. Otherwise if anyone wants a 22g VST for $30 posted, please also let me know...

    It is a common problem. If you want to use specialty baskets then you need a deeper portafilter like the Pesado. not cheap at about $160 but lovely. You will also need to state the diameter if you want to sell it.

    I'm in two minds about their value. The one that comes with my Wega is lovely brass with lashings of chrome and a standard basket in it that holds 18g. It works fine.

    get a naked PF and enjoy any basket you fancy (and less mess and cleanup).

    Cheers

    Pesado or get yourself a Cafelat XT portafilter that can quickly convert back and forth between bottomless and double spouted.

    Enjoy your basket :-D
