  • BETTER EXTRACTION DYNAMICS

    The Unifilter™ created a portafilter revolution. Weber Workshops is extending that concept to the Unibasket™, utilizing the same construction and improvements on extraction that the Unifilter™ brought, but in a "drop-in" basket form.

    The Unibasket™ is a portafilter basket created from a single, thick piece of stainless steel. Whereas typical baskets are made from thin wafers, the Unibasket™ is forged from a 1.2mm thick blank of metal. The added thickness dramatically improves the rigidity of the puck during extraction by not allowing the bottom face to bow outwards, a common cause of puck cracking and channeling during extraction.

    The Unibasket™ is made from a solid piece of Stainless 304 material. All of the holes are individually laser-ablated and go right up to the vertical wall edge, giving a true 58.5mm puck from top to bottom. Now made for anywhere from 16g ~28g shots spread across four sizes (and all +/- ~1g with use or elimination of puck screen).

    • Compatibility:
      • The height of the Unibasket varies by size. If the existing basket in your spouted portafilter is shorter, the Unibasket may interfere with the bottom of the group handle.
      • The Unibasket will fit most bottomless group handles. It is NOT COMPATIBLE with bottomless group handles by ECM, Slayer, Gaggia, Rancillio and Breville.
    • Size:
      • 16g basket: ⌀71mm x H24mm (⌀2.8in x H0.945in)

      • 24g basket: ⌀71mm x H29mm (⌀2.8in x H1.14in)
      • 28g basket: ⌀71mm x H31mm (⌀2.8in x H1.22in

Awesome basket, definitely notice a difference

I'm coming from a VST precision basket. While that basket has been great, stepping up to this has made a noticeable difference.
Using the autocomb on this doesnt push the whole bed around any more, shots flow a bit faster but taste better.

One minor annoyance is that i do find some grinds stay in the holes even after washing the basket. I have to take a coffee brush to push them out. I dont know if that really matters, but figured it would be better to do that.

Nice and sturdy

Cheaper than the direct competition, you also receive paper filters, a puck screen and a retaining spring.
Looks really good and super sturdy.

Most importantly, is it a good product? Yes, really the only drawback I would say is that I thought I would use the basket without the filter papers and I found that the basket remains cleaner and get a better extraction with the filter papers.

Runs faster and finer

Pros:
Sturdy and well built
Allows you to grind finer, especially with the paper
It saturates more evenly across with the edge to edge holes

Cons:
Fines can go through the holes at the bottom
It does not fit all portafilters due to the straight walled design

Great basket to up your espresso game. Grind finer to achieve same flow rate as normal VST or IMS baskets which increases EY. And the Eight Ounce team is really top notch with their sales/service.
