“Perfect extraction every time
Custom-made portafilter basket

We recommend using the Red Crema Plus (RCP) basket for best results. The RCP basket is our custom-made portafilter basket that we specifically designed to work with red espresso®. It delivers a perfect red espresso® shot – thick, rich crema, stronger taste and better extraction. The science is simple, the RCP basket has fewer holes than a typical coffee portafilter basket. This helps slow the extraction to produce a richer, tastier shot of red espresso® more consistently.

However, you can also make red espresso® using your standard double filter basket and manually pre-infusing (start expressing and stop when the pour starts, wait 10 seconds, then express a double shot (60ml / 2oz). Or using an Aeropress.
