OK y'all! Here's the dealio....

EDIT! This offer is for a VERY limited time. maybe today only....


I cannot get to CoffeeGeek.com so we're going to try to do this here instead. Maybe it will work and maybe not!

For those of you who know, there is a recent CG thread about baskets, and we have decided to put together a group buy. So tell your friends! I am going to make the purchase myself, and I'm thinking we will just get 18 gram baskets (see image below). They cost $9.79 ea. from Synesso and after shipping to me that will be ~$10 each + shipping to you. I plan to ship in USPS flat-rate envelopes (approx $4 each to anywhere in the US).

So shoot me an email. I'm JonR10-at-yahoo.com and I take paypal at the same address.
Your cost will be $10 each and I will just ask for $5 shipping for each shipment to cover "shipping and handling".



Here is the deal:

Some people have asked for "double" and "single" baskets, and we COULD get some of the 14gr above, but I'd rather KISS. There are no single (7gr) baskets and I talked with Mark at Synesso and he said the 14gr basket is the same as most on the market, it's the 18gr basket that's special.

So let me know! I want to do this quick and as easy as possible (it's already growing outta control!!)

Cheers y'all,
Jon

Jon, is it unique because it is sized between a normal double and normal triple?

Hi Chris,

Not only is it larger than a standard double and can still fit a standard E16 PF, but the slight tapered shape seems to help promote more even extractions than the more straight sided 21 gram basket (according to the guy at Synesso). MarkP from CoffeeGeek sez these baskets are made of slightly heavier-gauge stainless and that the hole pattern is more even and uniform as well.

That 18g basket looks like a Gaggia basket that has been stretched. The 21 looks like a super sized LM ridgeless (or triple).

Being out of the loop on the CG thread, what is the difference in the basket VS a LM?

I'm not sure I got it - and your profile doesn't have your real name.
Send me an email or PM to confirm, OK?
