I already have 4 baskets:
2 x BaristaPro by IMS - Nanotech Precision Filter Basket - 18 grams
2 x BaristaPro by IMS - Nanotech Precision Filter Basket - 15 grams
I know that using these baskets results in faster water flow than the Lelit baskets.
Just curious: Are they filtering out more vs less fines and oils, relative to the: a) above mentioned “IMS EB Superfine” , or b) the Lelit baskets? Cleaner vs not as clean taste?
I know, I know: Just test/try. And yes, it depends on a whole lot of other things. Just curious about your experiences.
For the moment I will continue to use my current baskets, while I figure out other things, like acclimatizing to my new NZ and improving my grinds distribution.
However I have learned one thing about IMS, and that its products may not be right for all machines and coffees. For example I bought the IMS screen at the same time as I bought my Lelit. But its flow, in combination with the IMS baskets, was way too fast. Taste and consistency improved when I went back to the Lelit screen. I also had a dark decaf roast that was flowing quite fast; going back to the stock Lelit basket helped.
I’m not going to play around with screens and baskets until I get bored. However Lelit seems to have gotten alot of things right, and I may well end up just using their stock baskets.
