The high extraction coffee basket has been specially designed to give you the most out of your espresso. With its unique design, it extracts significantly more dissolved materials from your beans, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup of coffee.
Whether you’re a coffee aficionado or just looking to up your coffee game, our high extraction coffee basket is sure to take your espresso to the next level. It’s perfect for achieving a higher extraction yield and unlocking the full potential of your coffee beans.
These coffee machine baskets are developed in 1.1mm stainless steel, CNC finished to be perfectly cylindrical and with laser cut holes at the bottom that expands in circles all the way to the outer edge of the bottom surface.
The added thickness improves the rigidity of the puck during extraction by not allowing the bottom face to bow outwards and the laser-cut holes are extremely accurate and allow for a higher open surface area that offers less resistance to the water flow during the extraction.
At Pesado they believe He[%] baskets will allow you to experience a more consistent extraction as well as an increased amount of total dissolved solids in your shot (higher yield).
After comparing a large number of espresso shots with fixed variables they can confidently say that these baskets will enhance your coffee experience for both black shots and milk-based beverages.
The He[%] filter basket is produced using CNC machining and laser cut hole technology, VST or IMS baskets are a pressed product, and both hole and shape are created by press and polish machines.
The He[%] basket uses 1.1mm thick steel and is perfectly cylindrical, while IMS/VST uses a thinner layer of steel and the top diameter is different from the bottom diameter.
The He[%] coffee basket has an overall more significant amount of holes and open surface area compared to IMS and VST. The laser technology allows the holes of HE to be closer to the edges.
Please check the product specifications to allow enough clearance.
Medium – 23.5mm (depth)
Large – 25.5mm (depth)
The baskets will fit all Pesado 58mm Spouted, Naked & Hybrid portafilters.
*except Pesado Breville 58mm models
Rule of thumb.
If it fits in your portafilter, it will fit in your machine.
Due to having a thickness of 1.1mm some may find it fits tightly on their coffee machine, but do not be discouraged – the filter basket design will keep your group seal lasting longer due to its rigid/flat structure.
Like any other espresso accessories soak in cleaner.
You can use a group brush or a needle to remove any stubborn residues.
