Kick your old baskets to the curb and take control of your espresso with these precision baskets by VST. At the forefront of precision espresso tech, VST created their baskets to address the all-too-common problems of baskets with off-center hole patterns, inconsistent hole sizes, and the issue of no two baskets being alike enough - all of which affect espresso extraction. In order to make espresso more controllable and predictable, VST created a basket and a manufacturing process to ensure that each basket is alike and as consistent as possible.

The baskets feature precisely engineered hole patterns that take advantage of the entire bottom surface for full extraction and finely-tuned hole sizes to optimize extraction time, and all this is evaluated before packaging to ensure the quality is up to par. Each basket comes with an individualized insert with its own testing data, your assurance that every single basket is analyzed for approval before being sent out for use. All this effort comes together to make a product that is consistent and predictable, so all of your group heads and machines can perform the same way when fitted with VST baskets. If repeatable quality is your game, then these are the baskets you need.

Baskets are available in 18 gram and 20 gram sizes, in both ridged and ridgeless designs. Select the options you want from the drop-down menu after clicking Add to Cart.

Great basket for Appartamento

The VST replaced the basket that came with my Rocket Appartamento and has made my pulls super consistent.

Works as advertised

Just put these baskets in my Linea at the shop after using other brands' "precision" baskets. There was marked improvement in consistency and quality of flavor. I don't think we'll be going back to any of the other brands we tried.

These are the best

These are absolutely the best thing I have used recently to improve espresso. I wrote in to the Cat and Cloud Podcast for suggestions and this was one of the first things they suggested trying. Prima was quick on delivery as always. I will be buying more in the future.

Professional standard

Great basket to get the most from your espresso extractions. Unforgiving to open basket poor technique but makes you get better and therefore so goes your espresso.

Good product, but not better result

The shipping was fast and the product is exactly as advertised. I haven't seen any improvement in my shots, and it doesn't fit into the group head properly. There are more holes than the original which results in a faster pour unless you adjust the grind. The basket is high quality, and well made. I just can't see any gain. Different, not better.

VST Precision baskets

The baskets are working well. Fit could be a little more snug to prevent users from having to occasionally dig them out of the trash can while expelling used pucks.
