Title: Gaggia classic ri9403/11 (2015) non-pressurized basket.
Post by: MrThobaiti on April 06, 2017, 07:26:44 AM
Hello guys, I hope you are doing well.

I have ordered the new gaggia classic 2015, not yet received.

I just came to know that basket comes with the machine is only pressurized.

So, my question is can I use non-pressurized baskets?? Old model basket??
And The bottomless portafilter does it fit??

I don't want order these items without confirmation.

Thanks

Hi,  welcome to GUG!

The traditional pre-2015 portafiters and all baskets that fit these will work fine in the 2015. At a minimum all you need is a non-pressurised basket and to remove the little black pressurising thingy from the stock 2015 portafilter.

Yes, you can use non-pressurized baskets for it.
I own a 9403 gaggia classic too and bought a non-pressurized coffee basket.
Its only 10 bucks .I Bought the one cup and two cups version.
They all fit nicely on the portafilter.
The one cup version is too small and doesnt work very well (It drains too fast the coffe albeit putting good pressure on the coffee).
I use only the 2 cup basket.
It works very nice :-)

I bought it here:

@MrThobaiti, a bottomless portafilter works fine in a new Gaggia Classic from 2015.

Imho the most satisfying one cup basket is the LM1 (https://www.tidaka.net/de/siebe/lm1er-sieb-fuer-41mm-tamper.html) however you need a tamper base with 42 mm in diameter. And also a fitting funnel helps tremendously in filling and tampering this basket.

It is this one "Für Gaggia-Brühgruppen" (https://www.tidaka.net/de/product.html?q=%2Fde%2Fzubehoer%2Fbodenloser-siebtraeger.html&info=1719). Unfortunately I've no source for the US.
