Not all coffee filters are the same. Filter selection will have a direct impact on the resulting taste of your coffee. The type of filter you choose will influence the body, acidity, and aroma of your cup.
Filters serve to separate the coffee ground from the brewed liquid. Material and shape have a direct impact on the taste of your coffee. Let’s jump right into different coffee filter types - paper, cloth, and metal - so that you can get a good look at which one will best suit your taste preferences and lifestyle.
The flow of water through the coffee particles is largely influenced by the shape of the filter. This determines the extraction and flavor of the coffee.
Conical filters produce evenly extracted brews and a more complete flavor.
Disk filters are primarily used with AeroPress brewers, are much smaller, and designed to brew one cup at a time
Due to the flat bottom, coffee grounds don’t get fully saturated, resulting in uneven extraction
