Got this as an upgrade for my Gaccia Classic and I'm very happy with the distribution of the my new shower filter!
I bought this to put on my mother’s espresso machine. I replaced the original with the IMS screen and it made a huge difference in the water dispersion. Instead of 2-3 streams, it now has about 10 streams of water coming out. I didn’t know if it made any empirical difference to extraction or flavor, but it looks like it should. It was good enough for my brother to see that and immediately buy one for his own espresso machine.
I am truly impressed with the responsiveness, communication, attention to detail, reasonable item pricing and reasonable shipping charge and quick order delivery of my recent order. I can recommend Caffewerks unreservedly to anyone in need of espresso machine parts. Aloha, Andy
