RCP Filter Basket
It is recommended to use the Red Crema Plus (RCP) basket for best results. The RCP filter basket was designed specifically for red espresso®. It provides a perfect red espresso® - thick, rich cream, stronger flavor and better extraction. The science is simple, the RCP filter has fewer holes than a standard coffee filter. This helps to slow down the extraction to produce a richer, tastier red espresso®.
However, you can also make red espresso® using the standard double basket and prepare manually (start extraction and stop when the flow starts, wait 10 seconds, then pull a double shot of espresso (60ml).
