Is this thing called an espresso basket? Here is the underpainting.
I realized this morning as I was photographing this that it is becoming an "old fashioned" item. You don't see them at Starbucks anymore and I know a lot of people who have automated machines where the only sign they see of this is the used "puck". That said, it was fun to paint a shiny thing as I work on my coffee theme.

UPDATE: It is called the basket.
