Posted Sat Feb 22, 2014, 8:41am Subject: non-pressurized basket for Mr Coffee
Hi everyone, I've stalked this forum for a while, but this is my first post.
I have a Mr Coffee Cafe Barista (ECMP1000), and recent got a Hario conical burr grinder. The two dont play nice with the Mr Coffee's pressurized filter basket. I tried modifying one filter basket in a lathe with no success (the rim of the filter bent before i could get through the bottom).
I noticed that in some older threads it was mentioned that the Krups 0907163 was a swap in replacement on the ECMP30- does anyone know if this will work on the ECMP1000?
If not, does anyone have any suggestions for upgrading to a non pressurized setup?

I didn't really expect a response to the above question (bottom of the line machine in a forum of connoisseurs), so I went ahead and ordered the Krups 0907163 ($10 from the gourmet depot- no affiliation, just the first google shopping listing that popped up).
In case someone in the same situation as I was in stumbles upon my question, the Krups 0907163 DOES work with the Mr Coffee Cafe Barista (ECMP1000). I was able to pull a shot this morning with it and got some exceptionally mediocre espresso!
Now that I have a normal filter, I have a lot to work on to nail down my grind and tamp before moving on to high quality beans and eventually machine mods.
