BIT Renato 8g Single Filter Basket Overview
The BIT Renato series is a new family of precision filter baskets developed by legendary cup tasting champion Sauro Dall’Aglio. A new collaboration with IMS, the Renato 8g Single Filter Basket is a specialized single filter basket with a deliberate “Pozzetto” shape and 223 hole count. Compared to the 10g and 90+ Renato baskets, the 8g works best when paired with a traditional Italian espresso like Lavazza or Illy.
In an effort to revive traditional Italian drinks, like the single shot espresso and true Italian Cappuccino, these baskets were designed with that specific purpose in mind. The Renato also emphasizes brightness and sweetness in the cup.
During extraction, water is naturally encouraged to flow down and towards the center of the puck. As a consequence of the design, shots pulled on the Renato benefit from reduced channeling and more even contact time between water and all areas of the puck.
Leaning more towards the IT in BIT, the Renato series baskets improve in-cup smoothness as is common in Italian espresso tradition and the Renato prefers a slightly coarser grind.
