All coffee filters offered by BrewBakers are of the highest quality. Our white paper filters are oxygen bleached without the use of chlorine. While brown paper filters may give off a subtle papery taste, quality oxygen bleached filters do not.
Paper filters remove a greater amount of the coffee oils and granules than metal filters, producing a very "clean" coffee somewhat lighter in body, brighter in taste and clearer in appearance.
Metal filters allow more of the coffee oils and fine grinds to pass through, producing a much bolder and fuller body cup of coffee compared to paper filters. Coffee brewed using a metal filter will appear cloudy compared to coffee brewed with a paper filter.
Cloth filters allow more oils to pass through than paper filters, but less tan metal filters. This produces a coffee somewhere between a paper filter and a metal filter - more body but without sacrificing the brightness and complexity.
We always recommend pre rinsing any filter with hot water, also pre-warming your filter, filter basket or dripper as well as your carafe, glass or cup.
