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!
VST's precision filters deliver consistent extraction performance over a wide range of concentration with reduced sediment
Designed to extract properly as a ristretto, normal, or lungo with minimal or no change in grind setting at a fixed dose
Filters are matched for the total square area to +/- 5% to ensure identical performance (typical variances of standard filters range from 50-200% of nominal open square area)
All VST Filters are WARRANTED for ONE-YEAR and for ZERO DEFECTS
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
The 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, patented anti-wear design ensures uniform performance for the life of the product
Improved structural integrity, will withstand deflection from pump cycling without premature fatigue failures (see VST Warranty)
