Quick Overview

Because of all the variables in coffee and espresso production, true consistency can be a lofty goal. As a leading manufacturer of commercial espresso machines, La Marzocco knows this better than anyone, as they recognize that trying to minimize variance makes for happier coffee drinkers, and is the reason behind the La Marzocco Strada portafilter basket. Using laser precision, the Strada portafilter basket eliminates inconsistency in hole size as well as positioning.

The double basket (17g) will fit most 58mm portafilters, the triple basket (20g) will most likely require a bottomless portafilter, but please check manufacturer specifications on your machine to be sure.

A shopper asked: So the double basket won't fit the standard Rancilio portafilter? Only a bottomless one? Feb 18, 2012

Kaylie KStaff: The La Marzocco Strada portafilter basket will work with the Rancilio Silvia portafilter. Feb 23, 2012

Teri KStaff: As an additional FYI, the double Strada fits the standard and bottomless Silvia portafilters, but a triple Strada may not fit all bottomless Silvia portafilters. A customer recently purchased a triple to use with his Silvia bottomless portafilter, but the bottomless was purchased from another vendor, and this basket was not compatible. In our tests, we found the current Silvia V3 Bottomless portafilter we offer to be the only bottomless that we can test to ensure an accurate fit for the triple Strada baskets. Jul 26, 2013

Ronald T: I agree with the above. I'm using similar VST baskets (made or prototyped by La Marzocco, I believe) in a Breville naked portafilter. I initially fit the basket with the original spring in place and had a very difficult time removing the basket. Rather than reshape the spring, I attempted to purchase a new spring with which to experiment, but was told they are not available for the Breville portafilter separately. Before I was able to find some wire or another spring, I've been using the Basket - portafilter combo without the spring. I just need to hold the far end of the basket against the inverted portafilter as I rap the near edge against the knock box. Good Luck. Jan 25, 2014

Mark H: I have found that by removing and reshaping the spring (easily done by hand) you can make almost any 58mm basket fit the Breville bottomless portafilter, while still using the spring. The flat sections of the spring need to be somewhat rounded, and the curved sections made somewhat less curved. By doing this, the spring then becomes much less aggressive but still sufficiently holds the basket in place. This works for VST and most other third party baskets. Jul 22, 2013

Teri KStaff: While the triple basket from La Marzocco does fit in the Breville Bottomless, it will only fit if the spring is removed. This means, however, there will be no tension holding the basket in place when you remove it from the brew head so it may stick, and knocking out the puck can be tricky, as you may loose that basket in the trash or your knockbox. If you give it a try, let us know how you like it! Jul 22, 2013

Ronald T: I've been doing quite a bit of experimenting over the last couple years with different equipment and parts. I'm using both 58mm stock Breville and laser-cut VST baskets in a dual boiler, PID controlled Breville. I know this is not exactly what you're using, but it's similar enough. I think you can find enough variation in coffee mass/volume among different brands/roasts and in final volume of coffee in the tamped basket, depending upon your tamping technique, that the difference in a 17gm or 18gm dose should not be a problem. Give it a try. The only potential problems would be difficulty installing the portafilter if the coffee is touching the upper screen, or some increased back pressure and maybe some leakage when pulling a shot. The downside is most likely a bad shot and a little mess. Good luck. Jan 23, 2014

Roger P asked: Hello. Will this portafilter fit my Rocket Cellini Evoluzione V2? Also, considering that it has a breakaway spout, would it be practical to use this without the spout to pour into a single espresso cup? Finally, which La Strada baskets will this accomodate?

Alan H: Hi Roger,
If this is indeed the portafilter and basket I bought from Seattle Coffee Gear, as they have informed me is the case and asked if I could be helpful with your question, they do indeed fit. On the question of what other baskets it would accommodate, I recall checking the specs of the portafilter and getting some info there about basket compatibility. Finally, I've kept the spouts on, out of habit, I guess, and if you have a wide enough cup there's no problem, which is what I have. Hope this helps.
Best.,
Alan

Improved my shots noticeably

If you're sitting on the fence about whether to purchase this basket, don't: this might be one of the best purchases I've made on top of my machine and grinder. The first shot I pulled with this basket in my Rancilio Silvia portafilter was smoother, richer, more robust.

Deep basket makes a difference

This is the highest quality filter basket I have seen. It comes along with data which confirms proper & consistent hole size of YOUR actual filter. I also love the deeper basket. It has a 17g capacity and its much easier to get a higher dose of coffee tamped just right without having to struggle to get it in the group head. I use it with my Rancilio and a Rancilio bottomless portafilter and it worked like a dream. I should caution it does require a bottomless or naked portafilter for my set up, but if you are considering this product you probably already have one. All and all I would strongly recommend this to the home enthusiast.

Pros:
Deep Basket, Great Taste, Highest Standards, Commercial Grade

Cons:
Need naked portafilter
