Will an 18g or 21g basket fit ?

Recommended Posts

Not 100% sure but based on all the other pf and machines i have used 18g if s spouted pf , 21 g you would more than likely need a naked pf .

Google vst basket uk , there are loads of suppliers and roasters that sell them .

Next question ridged or ridge less . One has a ridge , one does not . Easier to take out the one without a ridge .

I write a blog, it's nothing to do with coffee ...

I'm pretty sure the LM 'Strada' 17 is the same as a VST 18, the name and grammage was to avoid affecting sales of the other one or something like that. There was a thread on it somewhere. Most baskets of that capacity will fit a spouted PF as Martin says. My choice would be ridgeless. Ridged ones can sometimes be a real pita to get out.

The 21g basket that came with the bottomless portafilter that I have just bought for my Bezzera doesn't fit the Fracino portafilter on my Piccino. It is too tall by only a few millimeters, so I think that the smaller 18g basket would probably fit.

Thank you for all your feedback, the 18g vst is at the limit of a tight fit so the 21g will not fit ! And a summary of the 58mm tamper is that it does not fit a std double Fracino basket as it is too big .
