Upgrades for Classic

Recommended Posts

Have you adjusted the OPV at all? That's the main other one I did to my old classic 😊


IMS shower screen 

Brass (or more recently stainless steel?) dispersion plate

Do you have a bottomless portafilter? 

VST basket is worth it

On the dispersion plate, if going with the ims screen I've found that the original aluminium plate (a clean one...) works better than the stainless steel and others have said better than brass too, I think blu star coffee sell an ims specific brass one. Plus the holes are tapered. 

I would also agree that the vst basket is worth it. For me I use a naked portafilter since I like to see what's happening in the Puck. 

Have fun!

You could add a brew pressure gauge - several examples on here and there’s also a lower profile drip tray to add to the mix if you’re using slightly taller cups.
