The Gaggia instructions state 30lbs tamp for the pressurized basket but only light tamp for the unpressurized basket.  Do you agree with that technique?

Hello Jerry,

You would want to tamp with 30lbs of pressure with either basket.With the unpressurized basket is the basket the tamp pressure will make the most difference.  As with that basket you're using the coffee as the resistance to the pump.
