  • VST Precision Filter Baskets in 7, 15, 18, 20, 22 and 25 gram capacities.

    All basket features...

    • VST's precision filters deliver consistent extraction performance over a wide range of concentration with reduced sediment
    • Designed to extract properly as a ristretto, normale or lungo with minimal or no change in grind setting at a fixed dose 
    • Filters are matched for 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
    • 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
    • Improved structural integrity, will withstand deflection from pump cycling without premature fatigue failures

    We are excited to be stocking the new 25g baskets!

    Users will find the new 25g VST Precision Filter familiar in utility to the well known 22g model, at a similar grind setting, and is both predictable and forgiving with beverage amount variances. An increase of 25% in soluble solids delivered per shot over the 20g model. Dose 26g in and 36g Beverage out to produce 5g of soluble solids at ~14% TDS and ~20% Extraction Yield. The additional high octane espresso beverage from these baskets delivers an extraordinary kick and coffee flavor boost to your espresso beverages.
