Can anyone help me?? Ive seen bottomless filter holders around and I'm curious as to what the beenfits of using them are as apose to the standard one with a pressurised basket in that i use with my gaggia classic. If anybody has one and thinks it creates a vastly better espresso i'd like to invest in one and if anyone knows the best one to get with a limited budget i would appreciate the help. They also look really cool when pulling a shot! Thanks.
I'm new to grinders - don't have one. I have a DeLonghi EC155 right now. I've been reading how you could have both a pressurised portafilter (standard) and mod it to be unpressurised, and I see the Gaggio Classic can be used both ways. As I understand it, pressurised PFs can take a slightly courser grind than unpressurised, where you need a nice tamped down puck to get a good shot. So as a starter piece of kit before upgrading the grinder and considering going unpressurised, can I get OK results with a DeLonghi KG79? I realise that some of the grind may be uneven, but can it grind fine enough for a pressurised PF at least? I've also looked at the YT mod to grind finer, which looks fairly easy to do. So should I go ahead with an interim starter burr grinder or what? Opinions welcome, as always.
