Precision espresso baskets (sometimes called calibrated baskets) are designed to fit most standard 58 mm portafilters. We recommend the La Marzocco / Strada baskets for the Rancilio Silva.

Also on offer is the IMS 20/22g. To use these in the Rancilio you need a naked/bottomless portafilter.

The standard basket that comes with an espresso machine is made of standard gauge steel, that is pressed with a mother impression. As a result, these baskets have varied size holes, promoting channeling and poor extraction.

The precision baskets are made from high-quality stainless steel, and each filter hole is individual cut and tested to a minimum tolerance. This helps with even extraction through the puck.

The baskets are also calibrated to the particular weight of espresso ground coffee. Ensuring that the gap between the shower screen and the coffee is optimal for most espresso grind sizes.
