    I did some research on replacing the Lelit baskets, but after coming close to buying the set of Decent Espresso baskets, I was dissuaded by all the test work on baskets that Jim Shulman did, over on H-B. Summing up, unless you are particularly dedicated to light roasts only, you end up spending a large sum on three baskets and have to regularly swap them when changing to medium or dark roasts, when in fact the standard basket is a very good compromise. If you are dedicated largely to light roasts, then it could be a good swap. But they don't extract well outside of a narrow range of roast.
    BTW, if you haven't read them already, his review of Bianca and the user experience thread on H-B re very useful.
    I'll be interested to read about your experience with replacement baskets, if you go ahead.

    Thanks a lot, Graham! I had read some of the posts on HB, but not all. Shall rectify that when I have the time and stay off the basket purchases in the mean.

    It's a good value
    The peculiarity of espresso beverage is the simultaneous presence of three dispersed phases coexisting within a matrix, namely a concentrated solution of salts, acids, sugars, caffeine and many other hydrophilic substances. These phases are: an emulsion of oil droplets, a suspension of solid particles and an effervescence of gas bubbles, which evolves into a foam.

    I am guilty for that, bought Bianca from Bella Barista Wednesday, very impressed with the machine it is a thing of beauty. Claudette was very helpful and showed me how to play with the machine.

    I think if the reviews get people asking the right questions, even if they don't buy the machine, it's a good thing. Sometimes my independent work with other companies does strain relations, but that's the nature of being independent and not an employee... It's also part of my value in a way.
