This 21 gram, "58 mm"* portafilter basket works awesome in a bottomless portafilter, so much so that this is the basket we ship with every custom machine we build. Traditionally a single shot was 7 grams, so this is considered a triple.
The EPMZ_108 is the result of Espresso Parts seeking to find a better basket than the standard baskets available at the time, which was around 2008~2009. While testing our available baskets, we found that there was a particular basket in the bunch that performed better than the others. Now all we had to do was find the people behind the work. All we can say is that as luck would have it, it seems we were looking for each other. The result was the EPHQ line of portafilter baskets with their micro-fine finish, created utilizing a technique developed by the manufacturer. This final process used in the fabrication of the baskets may be the most important. The inside bottom of the baskets receive the final cleaning using a laser to remove any jagged edges from the perforation process, and leaves a distinct sunburst pattern. The end result is that every hole in the basket is clear of metal debris and are of equal size and shape, which allows for a more even distribution of water throughout the extraction.
We are offering three different baskets at this time. The idea was to create three baskets based upon our most popular selling baskets. This is the medium size of the three.
We are excited to offer these quality created baskets, and we think you will agree that the results are in the cup!
As these are fabricated with martensitic stainless steel, magnetic doser funnels hold on great.
*58mm refers to the outside diameter of a tamper best suited for this basket.
