Product Description

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 it recognizes that trying to minimize variance makes for happier coffee drinkers. This 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.

How the La Marzocco Strada Portafilter Basket - 58mm Works

Fill it up just like you would a standard portafilter:

  • Lightly fill the portafilter basket to the top.
  • Use your finger to gently even out the grounds.
  • Lightly press the tamper into the grounds and find a good center point.
  • Evenly apply approximately 30 lbs. of pressure to the grounds.

So the double basket won't fit the standard Rancilio portafilter? Only a bottomless one?

Will the double basket fit a Breville 900? The breville baskets are tapered which makes tamping rather difficult.
A shopper on Jul 6, 2013
Best Answer: No, unfortunately this La Marzocco basket is too tall for the Breville 900 machine.

Will this triple basket work on the Breville Bottomless Portafilter for Dual Boiler BES900XL ??

Thanks.
Peter P on Jul 18, 2013
Best Answer: 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.

Does this basket fit the Rocket bottomless portafilter?
Yakir V on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: Yes it's fine. However, it will not make your Rocket as cool as the La Marzocco GS III. Hi also paired it with E61 Precision Group Shower Screen
by IMS. Search the web to find it. (E61 200 IM) in the end it's all about subtle improvement.

Can you put 18 g of coffee into the 17 g basket with no overflow, issues, or problems?

Thank you.

A shopper on Jan 8, 2014
Best Answer: 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.

Will the double basket (17 g) fit the Breville naked portafilter for use with a Breville 920xl espresso machine (double boiler)? Think about buying both: naked portafilter and the VST basket.
A shopper on Jan 8, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, they will both fit the Breville BES920XL, and would be a good option if you're looking to replace your Breville double filter basket, and would like to pull your shots into a steady stream for a single cup!

will this fit a Vibiemme filter?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2014
Best Answer: We don't have a Vibiemme portafilter to test the basket with, unfortunately however it should fit most 58mm portafilters. You may want to check with the manufacturers specifications just to be sure.

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? Thank you in advance.

Best Answer: 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

17 gram Strada Basket fits rancilio portafilterReview by Bucs Anthem
Quality
Price

Correction for: "RLB coffee lover"

You stated in your last review that you need a naked portafilter for the 17gram......that is incorrect

The Strada 17 gram basket which is considered as a "Double Basket" fits my rancilio 58mm (normal) portafilter just fine.

Now if you get the 21 gram Strada basket which is considered a "Triple Basket".....then you need a naked portafilter.

Very nice and no-regretReview by Jamaes

This product is everything it says. Simply perfection, not a run of the mill stamped out piece of metal. If you are getting what you want from your current basket, then buying this will likely not net you enough improvement to feel the value. If your tamper is not fitting well, or you have a cheaper basket with sloppy pressed holes, then this is your solution and you will be tickled with the high quality.


If you have multiple baskets in your environment, then these will likely be a huge win, as it will quickly create consistency across multiple machines or multiple baskets.

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. (Posted on 7/22/2013)

Deep basket makes a differenceReview by RLB coffee lover
Quality
Value
Price
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 (Posted on 1/4/2012)
