Does this pressurized filter kit work in an ECM Giotto / Rocket Espresso portafilter? I realize that Gaggia and ECM are 58mm portafilters, but will this double wall basket bottom out or will other variances in basket diameter or design prevent the basket from properly seating against the head gasket?
Thank you for your post. It should, but using a pressurized basket does eliminate a lot of the control that you have over the shots with the ECM or Rocket Espresso machines.
Well answer this then,,, I also have a Gaggia Evolution that also does not give a single dot of crema and was thinking of shelling out $32Au + shipping for one. Using the exact same coffee ground in the exact same grinder I can get far better results in 2 other coffee machines (Breville & Sunbeam) that are regarded as the 'bottom end' of the cost spectrum. Closer inspection of the filters I've realised they might be 'double bottomed' pressurized ones.. Why wasn't this supplied in the first place with the much more $$$ Gaggia..???
The Gaggia does come with the double walled baskets, when purchased new. Are you using your own grinder? What kind?
I have the classic gaggia and have lost the frothing jet device. When I search your website for this item, it does not appear. How do I order this part? Thank you.

Hi i have just bought some paper filter pods (ESE) for my Gaggia Classic. I have 2 baskets that came with the machine (1 shot and 2 shot). Which basket would you recommend to use with ESE pods.. Trying to work out if I need the pressurized version with the rubber plug (1 hole) or the pod basket version with many holes...? Advice would be great..
Riley, you would need to use the pod filter basket with your ESE pods. If you don't already have one, you can find one here: http://www.wholelattelove.com/Gaggia/gaggia_pod_basket.cfm
