I have just received a Gaggia Classic. I started making my first 14 gr double shots with decent results.
The Gaggia is factory with no upgraded or modifications and I am using the 58 mm portafilter it came with.
Before proceeding I would like to switch to single shots, because that is what I like to drink.
Since I really don't want to make double shots and throw away half of what I make, here is my question:
a) Use the commercial style double cup filter that came with the machine and learn how to make a good espresso with a 7gr dose?
b) Buy a single shot non pressurized Gaggia filter even if from what I have read is difficult to use (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005F482C4/
c) Buy a single shot basket like this one https://www.wholelattelove.com/baristap ... ter-basket
d) Buy a Decentespresso 7gr basket like the one on this page https://decentespresso.com/basket
I am assuming that I can use (c) and (d) in my Gaggia porta filter.
