Topic: Exotic Coffee Filter (7 msgs / 125 lines)
1) From: Jon Rosen
A friend of mine asked me if I had used this new type of coffee filter he read about. He thought he recalled that it might have been made from glass with laser-etched pores. I've never heard of it and he couldn't find the reference again. Has anyone heard of this filter, and if it exists, does it produce a particularly good cup of coffee?

Never seen one, but I do like my vac pot with the filter rod vs a cloth filter, it has a slight advantage. :D

I am using the Coava Kone. It hasn't replaced the Espro Press for my wife's brewed coffee, but when we or she wants more than one cup, it is handy.

I'm using the Kone too, picked it up for family sized pots.  It'll Chemex 1+
liters in three to five minutes where I was getting seven to nine minute
pours with paper.  It has some sediment and let's the oils pass through, and
the taste is good.
I'll be using it tonight for a family gathering, but I need to roast up some
coffee first.
They also make a metal Disk out of the same material for the AeroPress, and
a valved funnel to use the Kone as a full immersion brewer (like a clever
coffee dripper).

6) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I am not to thrilled with the Kone, but didn't want to come out 
against it. It lets way too much sediment through, and even with a 
professional Mahlkonig I could not get an acceptably low amount of 
grit in the cup. You can let it settle out, but that doesnt make up 
for how gritty the cup is. I think it is really nice, as an object. 
It's US made, and I appreciate that Coava went and had this done. But 
I feel the results are not ideal. And the price, whew. Anyway, if you 
don't mind sediment (much more that a swissgold) it's worth looking 
into. As far as all glass filtration, I have heard of this but not 
seen it. Well - not including a Cona filter rod, I suppose... Tom

7) From: Captain CowPie
I received the metal disk for the Aeropress a few days ago. I have been searching for something like this for a while. I have been experimenting with it for a few days, and have made my grind coarser to compensate. The only thing I would change would be smaller, denser holes.
I will report back when I have more time to experiment with it.
