Best precision basket?

By: on 17 January 2024
After having tried VST and IMS baskets with various machines such as Rancilio Silvia, Vibiemme Domobar and more recently, the Expobar Minore IV, and without much success, I decided to try the Pullman Precision 17-19g version. Our preferred dose is 18g, so this one seemed to fit the bill. However, at 18g dosage, while the shots tasted great, I found the pucks were very watery and sloppy, requiring cleaning between shots which was a royal PITA. At 18g, there is simply too much headspace between the puck and the shower screen. I found that in order to achieve a puck that knocks out cleanly, I had to dose it at 22g. I roast a variety of my own coffee, and I found this was consistent across all coffees. Just be aware, that these straight sided, high-flow baskets hold more coffee than the stock baskets that come with these machines. I found that in order to brew with an 18g dose again I had to resort to a stainless steel puck screen. This works very well and produces consistent, excellent shots without channelling and the most even flow of the three baskets I have mentioned here, and with a clean puck that knocks out easily. The high polish of the Pullman helps to release the puck easily and is so clean that it doesn't even need a wipe down between shots. The build quality of the Pullman is outstanding. I've looked at it under the microscope and the holes are very precisely machined, as you would expect. It took me a while to learn how to use it properly, but have found my nirvana with the Pullman, albeit with a puck screen. However, I can't help wondering if a small 15-16g basket shouldn't also be in the lineup? If you buy it, be prepared to be patient as these work differently to a stock basket. However, once you get it dialled in, you will love it.
