IMS Chosen by the world's top roasters, caffes and world barista champions -
(Ridged filter baskets have a groove in the side wall which a spring in the portafilter locks in to help retain the basket in the portafilter. Ridgeless, or unridged baskets, have smooth walls and as a result generally require a stronger spring to ensure they stay in place when knocking out used coffee pucks. )
