Reusable and eco-friendly. Eliminates the need for paper coffee filters
I love this reusable coffee filter! My morning coffee tastes much better than before when I used paper filters. I use it every morning.
Perfect with pour through ceramic cone...
Great product. Very durable and a perfect match for my ceramic cone pour over. This durable, reusable filter is affordable and perfectly designed. Will order again, for sure!
Never going back to disposable.
Phenomenal filter with great flavor extraction and no unwanted sediment, all at a very reasonable price. A little extra work to wash vs. disposable filters but well worth it!
Reusable coffee filter
Great, love it....
Great for my 8-cup Chemex!
This got 5 stars all around for me.I was afraid it would be the wrong size and that it would be too small for my 8-cup Chemex. Upon using it, it does appear to be smaller than a normal filter that I previously used however it is big enough for the amount of grounds I put in there which is about 4-6tbsp. It�s easy to clean and is a much better alternative to the wasteful paper ones I used before.
