Portafilter Basket - VST Double 18g Ridged 58mm

VST baskets came onto the market and raised the bar for basket consistency and performance. Before then no one had really paid much attention to how their baskets were made. VST baskets are precision engineered and basket holes are measured for size, placement and shape. Basically they made a high performing basket to match your high performing espresso machine. These baskets are designed to help you get a better tasting coffee, every time. 

Do they match the hype, we think so!
