Hello,

I just got an espresso that was used. I do not feel that the basket the seller gave me is right. If you could let me know what kind of portafilter basket this is I would appreciate it.

Yes, it is a pod basket that fits into a special pod portafilter. Nowadays better machines normally come with three different filters to compensate for different pods, and also today pod system is normally interchangeable with ground coffee portafilter and with different adapters. so if you mention the brand of machine you bought, and possible production date I might be able to advise you more
Ciao
