Great upgrade from stock GCP

Finally pulled the plug and upgraded to the 18g basket. Dialing it in was tough, you will waste some beans but at the end - well worth it paired with a bottomless portafilter. Delivery was efficient and loved the goodies!

Great product

This basket really helped with the channeling issues I was having. Love that it comes with an inspection report to verify quality. Overall this basket brings more consistency to my workflow and helps remove a variable of uncertainty.

Perfect upgrade for my Rancilio Silvia V2

Perfect upgrade for my Rancilio Silvia V2! Stock basket is tapered and does not hold nearly enough coffee. Next day delivery was great as well!

coffee satisfaction

Coupled with new burrs on my Rancilio grinder the VST Portafilter results in the best Crema in years!
