1-CUP FILTER 5.5/6.5 GRS.
1-CUP FILTER 5.5/6.5 GRS.

I purchased this basket and I used with the suggested quantity of about 7 grams.
The problem is that using the 58mm tamper it seems that I don't tamp properly in the center.
Do I have to use a smaller tamper?

Brian Henderson I also purchased the single basket and my 58mm tamper bottoms out. I think I read that you need to step down to a smaller size on one of the message boards. BTW, I have found that I don't even want to use the single any more after I got used to caps and lattes made the right way with a doubleshot and 8oz steamed milk poured into a standard US 10oz coffee cup. Using the single makes my drink too weak.

Stephen Martin Are you using and convex or flat tamper? I wonder if a convex would work better for a single shot basket.

I assume that this particular item is a traditional (i.e. non-pressurized) single shot basket. Do traditional filter baskets generally produce better brew than pressurized ones?

mjackson ♦ Good question. This is a non pressurized basket. If you have the correct grind a traditional basket like this can give you a better shot. You do need to make sure you have a grinder that will give you the ability to follow the golden rule ( http://www.wholelattelove.com/articles/the_golden_rule.cfm ). Generally speaking a grinder that is in the 200 dollar and above range. The nice thing about a pressurized basket is it can help you get a good shot where the grind may not be just right. I hope this helps.

Gaggia Pod/Single Basket
Gaggia Pod/Single Basket

Can you tell me more about the Gaggia Single basket? I recently received a Gaggia espresso maker as a gift and have been very disappointed. The 2 cup standard filter comes out perfect, however usually I just make one cup for me and the filter with the pin hole that came with the machine for single cups clogged with a piece of coffee bean shortly after I used it. I have to clean it constantly with a pin. I prefer using ESE pods when possible but because of the clogged pin hole (no matter how much I try to clean it, soaking it water, etc., I cannot get it to work properly. I'd prefer to find a single cup size filter that I can use with beans or ESE pods. I find that when the current filter does work with ESE pods, although I get lots of creme, the coffee tastes under extracted.

Thanks

mjackson ♦ David,
If you have the pressurized single shot basket. You need to make sure that you are also using the two way plastic pin with it. It should be with your machine and it goes between the bottom of the basket and your portafilter. You can buy from us either a dedicated gaggia pod basket , or a single shot basket non pressurized if you like as well. You can call and order these. I am not sure how you can coffee stuck in the pressurized basket.

mjackson ♦ It is not a pressurized basket. It will work with pods as well as ground coffee. It does a nice job with both products.

Will this 58 mm Gaggia E.S.E. pod filter fit the portafilter in the Breville Double Boiler?

mjackson ♦ Bonnie,

There is no pod adapter that will fit in the Breville, unfortunately it was not designed to brew pods. I hope this helps but it is a nice machine.

Gaggia Pod/Single Basket
Gaggia Pod/Single Basket

We recently ordered the Gaggia Classic and are having trouble with the single pod basket. It spurts espresso everywhere when you use it. We tried everything from grinding the beans different to tampering less and nothing works. The double pod basket works fine. After looking at the basket trying to figure out what could be wrong we noticed that it only had one tiny hole on the back side and believe that this might be the problem. THe double seems to have many holes that go through the entire basket. Is this normal or do we have a deffective pod basket?

mjackson ♦ Melissa,
It actually is a single pressurized basket. I am going to give you a link to a video so you can understand how it works. You need to put the black plastic piece in between the bottom of that basket and the portafilter. Then it will work as it was designed.

mjackson ♦ Ray,

We for now only have the pressurized double basket for sale. I am not sure how long before we will be able to stock the single as they do make one but it is not being sold yet as a stand alone part. We do sell the regular pod and also a regular single shot baskets. I prefer to make doubles anyways, but we should someday have the single pressurized basket for sale.

Ray Kerley Thank you for the information. I already have the pressurized double basket and also the regular single/pod baskets. Please let me know when you have the pressurized single/pod basket for sale.

I see the double basket under the Parts/Care tab of the site, but can't find the pressurized version of the Gaggia 58mm pod/single filter basket. Please direct me where to go to order the pressurized pod/single basket.
