Why use a portafilter triple basket?

Originally used with triple spouts for triple espresso shots in Italian espresso bars Triple baskets are mainly found in naked portafilters and in deeper-bodied portafilters today.

Single Filter Basket design can make a difference in extraction. The deep conic basket can improve the extraction and increase the crema. 

IMS has developed a high-quality coating to further improve the surface of its filters using quartz nanotechnology. Thanks to its non-stick property, this coating makes it easier to remove used coffee pucks and it also makes it easier to clean, thereby rendering the antibacterial nature of the surfaces extremely effective.

  • The advantage of this technology is its hydro-repellent effect - water is reflected back into the coffee puck.
  • The coating makes it easier to remove used coffee pods, and it also makes it easier to clean thereby rendering the antibacterial nature of the surfaces extremely effective.
  • Non-stick coating made of NANOQUARTZ increases the resistance to corrosion and chemical reaction.

How to clean a portafilter basket?

Portafilter baskets need to be soaked in a cleaning solution every evening in a commercial environment to remove burnt or carbonated coffee sugars. Use a filter basket remover such as Crowbar Filter Basket Remover to pop off the basket with ease. Should the basket fall off during banging into knockbox the filter basket spring should be adjusted or replaced.
