Topic: Triple baskets and espressopifany (3 msgs / 63 lines)
1) From: Justin Schwarz
USPS just arrived with a couple of goodies for me, one of which was a  
18g ridgeless basket.  I was so happy it fit in my gaggia portafilter  
w/o going naked, which I plan to do anyway at some time.  I adjusted  
rocky up 1 notch loaded up some Brazil Carmo de Minas - Fazenda do  
Serrado, I got a pretty decent ristretto, one more notch and WOW!!! I  
haven't had anything like that from my gaggia new baby.  I pulled a  
couple of shots this morning with the stock basket and they were  
rather unimpressive.  looks like I will be going through even more  
coffee now.
Can't wait to try my bottom of bag blend:
Panama Carmen Estate, Guatemala Huehue Quetzal Azul and some DP Mexico  
roasted to FC+/Vienna
and
Various ethiopians and kenyans roasted to FC just at the verge of 2nd
2 batches pre roast blended then post roast blended, does that make  
sense?  I'm kinda wired right now.
Initial cupping as soon as the beans were cool suggested I have a  
winner never to be repeated.
If coffee is good w/o rest can flavors change unfavorably with a  
traditional rest period? I probably won't be able to keep this in rest  
mode for 3-5 days.

Justin - do you have a link for that basket?  How did you know it was going
to fit your Gaggia New Baby or was that just a hope, hence your happiness?
Can the Gaggia's use naked portafilters, too?

I planned to do the naked conversion when I purchased the basket, and  
I still do.  It was merely a bonus that I didn't have to right away.   
I will send you a link off-list for the basket.
