Best Answer:I believe it is supposed to be a 14 gram basket. However, I usually dose 15-17 g, occasionally 18 depending on the coffee, though at 17-18 g you may be running into the shower screen with some coffees. 15-16 g seems to leave a reasonable amount of space below the shower screen in my experience.
Cindy - not sure exactly what you are asking because of the units(IE oz), but I'll take a guess. I have used this unit for quite a while. It takes about 14 grams of coffee. I am able to pull a very solid double shot using my Rancilio Silvia V3 & Rocky Doserless grinder. Hope this helps.
The double filter basket will hold 14 to 17 grams of coffee. However, you might want to watch Gail's video How to Eyeball the amount at Seattle Coffee Gear. Personally I always use the triple filter basket at 21 grams.
Is this the new version double basket Rancilio Part # 40-100-102?

Best Answer:Yes, this Silvia basket is the model 40100010-2. I am not sure if it is a newer version than the V1 and V2 model baskets, however this is the current version we order using that part number from Rancilio.
