Seattle Coffee Gear Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Debra W: Occasionally, when I'm in a hurry, I use a coffee pod rather than grind my beans, fill the basket, etc, and this is the perfect holder for a pod. Cleanup is a breeze for those certain rushed mornings! Mar 21, 2012
Sam Dog asked: Can the Saeco Single Shot/Pod Filter Basket be used with ground coffee? If so, how does it work?
I've tried to use it and cannot get any flow through it. Thanks

ROBERT M: Yes it works with finely ground coffee but you first have to put the rubber filter basket gasket into the portafilter with the single shot basket over it. It does not work great so I usually use the double filter basket with a heaping coffee measure of espresso ground coffee and that works a lot easier.
Good luck ...Bob

G L: Mine is working great, three considerations (1) your pump must generate good pressure (2) your grind may be too fine, (3) you can over pack the filter. There is a relation between 2 & 3. I pack very fine grind in the bottom then add some more coffee without packing it.

good luck

Teri KStaff: When you use the single shot basket, are you removing the pod gasket? You will always use the rubber pod gasket, which would be placed under the basket and then seated in your portafilter, with the single shot sized basket. When you use the double basket for ground coffee, remove the rubber gasket. Aug 28, 2012

R. T. A: Do you have the gasket in place? If so, it will work with the pods and with ground coffee. Does water come through with no coffee or pod? RTA Aug 29, 2012

James G: [With the rubber gasket] it is for use with pre-packaged pods. You can get them in boxes and they are great for convenience and no mess. Aug 28, 2012

Howard W: I'm not 100% clear on your question, but if you're asking whether the single-shot basket for sale here is 53mm and will work with a 53mm tamper (just like the original manufacturer's included baskets), I can confirm that it does! I used the same Rattleware 53mm tamper with this single-shot basket as I did with the OEM double basket. Mar 21, 2012

Debra W: I bought one of these single shot/pod filter baskets, but I've only used it with a coffee pod... and of course I do not have to tamp a pod! I can tell you though... this single shot/pod filter basket is EXACTLY the same inside diameter as the regular Saeco double shot basket. Hope this helps. Mar 21, 2012

Brian F asked: Hello, how much time should my single shot pull for to be done? this would be using the Saeco Single Shot/Pod Filter Basket with the gasket underneath inside the portafilter?
I ask because it seems to me that the shot is pulling too fast... filling my 2 ounce cup in about 15 seconds or less... tastes a little watery. I'm using pre-ground coffee I find here in Miami, Florida from brands like Pilon, Bustelo, La Llave.
Thanks for any advice.

Teri KStaff: The Saeco Single shot basket sits on top of the rubber pod gasket in your portafilter, and you will need to dial in your grind for pressurized extraction. We have a video at the link below that you may find helpful for getting this fine tuned!

Abhishek M asked: I have depressurised the factory handle by removing the plastic mechanism inside and the machine chokes with pre ground coffee in this single basket.

Wondering if this single basket is suitable for a non-pressurised handle at all?

Teri KStaff: This Single Shot/Pod Filter Basket will not give you great results with a non-pressurized set up, and I would recommend checking out the Single Shot Basket for Non-Pressurized Portafilters. This basket is a bit deeper and has a slightly different shape than your single/pod basket and is designed specifically for non-pressurized portafilters. If you give it a try and the machine is still having trouble, then the grind may not be dialed in just right, as a non-pressurized portafilter will require a very specific grind dialed in to your machine. You should then be tamping with 30# of pressure and timing your shots so that you obtain 2 ounces of liquid in 20-30 seconds. As a last resort, I would suggest double checking everything looks good throughout that newly depressurized portafilter. Hope this helps! Jul 31, 2013
