Why did you choose this?
Seattle Coffee Gear Store
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!

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
Sam Dog on Aug 26, 2012
Best Answer: 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

Well,,so good,,
But need some confirmation on size^^
As I known it has 53mm inside diameter and use 53mm tamper.
Are you sure?

Best Answer: 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.

I bought the Pod Filter but not the gasket, do I need the gasket if I use the pods. Also what kind of pods do I use the Tassimo?

Best Answer: Yes, you need the gasket to use the pods. You can use the Tassimo pods if you wish.

i used the single shot basket/pod filter for the first time...filled it to the same level (not amount) as the double shot basket, that is, leveled off at the top. it didn't fit...wouldn't lock. took some grinds out, and it locked. ran the machine. took out the portafilter was empty! ALL the coffee stuck to the brewhead. what did i do wrong?

Will this portafilter fit my DeLonghi ECO310 ?

Best Answer: Unfortunately, it will not fit on a Delonghi. The Delonghi ECO310 uses a smaller portafilter than the 53mm non-pressurized portafilter for Saeco machines, or the Saeco single shot filter basket.

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.

Best Answer: 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!

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?
Abhishek M on Jul 30, 2013
Best Answer: 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!
