Why is a double espresso basket more than twice a single?

When you get your second seven it has a higher value.

Double and single don't really refer to any specific volume of grounds. 
Single baskets, have a smaller area on the bottom that allows the same 
pressure to build through a thinner puck. Doubles and singles come in a 
variety of sizes. For example, you can get Faema single baskets that 
are sold as 6 & 7 gram 'volumes' and doubles that are sold as 12 & 14 
gram baskets. All of these hold significantly more than the advertised 
amounts when used with one of the Isomac machines.
The doubles generally hold approximately 16 & 18 grams, depending on 
the coffee and roast. I rarely use the singles and don't remember 
exactly how much they hold but I think it's 8-9 & 9-10 grams, which is 
at least, if not more than, half of the double.
I don't own a triple basket but they seem to simply be a deeper double.

Just be thankful it is. How many times do you get more than you bargained for?
