  1. I am using a 58mm tamper but realise now it's a bit on the small side. It's hard to belive fractions of a mm can make a difference but I do think I need something a little bigger. If you have a Gaggia classic, what size do you use? I'm using a standard 14g double basket.
  2. Hi, I recently purchased a Fracino Classic CLA1 from grumpydaddy, who was a nice guy and really helpful. The machine only came with a double portafilter and basket, I need to be able to do a single shot. I am a beginner and this is my first machine, I just wanted to ask which single portafilter and single basket I should buy for it? I am not sure what size. I also need to get hold of a tamper and holder if anyone could recommend me a decent one that will fit the portafilters for this machine. Thanks very much.
  3. This will hopefully be my last question for a while! i own a 17g la marzocco basket and am after a tamper, what size tamper will I be needing? Cheers again Ben
  4. Just a quick note that I have considerably improved the consistency of single shots using the LM single basket by finally getting a 41 mm tamper. (I used to use 8-10g to build a mound above the lower narrower part and then tamped that with the 57mm HappyDonkey tamper, but now use 7-8 g and can properly tamp that inside the narrower part). I got a Concept Art one through a German website, vitaliano.de (I found it hard to find in the UK but maybe my Google skills are just bad.) So this is both a tip to go get one if you use the LM basket and also where you might find it, just search f
  5. A tamper is the piece of metal, most often with a wooden handle used to compress the coffee. Some coffee machines and grinders do come supplied with attachments of a plastic tamper. But these are generally not recommended as it's difficult to apply the pressure required for a good espresso (25-32lb's) Many machines have different basket sizes and so require different tampers. below is a list of some of these: Astoria 58 Astra 56 Aurora 56 Azykoyen 58 Bezzera 58 Brasilia 58 Caramili 58 Conti 56/57 Dalla corte 54 Elektra 58 Faema 58 Futurmat 58 Gaggia 58 Isoma
