Looking to get more sweetness and depth from your espresso? It might be time to look at your filter basket.
VST Precision Baskets offer improved consistency and extraction due to their careful design and rigorous manufacturing.
Unlike many market baskets, VST baskets utilize as nearly all of the space on the bottom of the basket. This allows water to flow evenly thorough the entire bed of coffee, creating sweet and thoroughly extracted shots of espresso.
Every basket is micro-machined and carefully inspected during finishing. All the holes are uniform in size and distribution.
- Filters are matched for total square area to +/- 5% to ensure identical performance
- Holes are fabricated using a new micro-machine and finishing process
- 100% of holes are measured on every filter for min/max range limits on area and diameter to a precision of +/- 20 µm (individual QC report provided with every filter)
- All holes are measured for circularity, placement, square area and blocked holes
- Hole pattern is centered to +/- 1.0 mm and placement is oriented for uniform extraction throughout the entire puck
- Wide outlet angle to prevent filters from clogging, anti-wear design ensures uniform performance for life of product
