Customer Reviews

Easy to clean and works well.
ScubaDeb
As long as you grind you coffee fine enough, this steel filter does not leak any more than paper and lets through only a tiny amount of sludge.
Amazon Customer
Better than paper filters for coffee.

I've been using the Aeropress for almost a year now and love it. When the supply of paper filters was getting low, I looked for a "permanent" solution and found this filter. I'm not sure if I would get this again, if I had the choice. While it does its job fairly well, here's the pros and cons:

Pro: Re-usable.
Doesn't filter out oils which may improve the taste.

Cons: Price. I could get 3 years worth of paper filters for this price. Who knows how durable these things are.
As with french-press coffee makers, it does let through a bit of fine coffee 'dusts'.
Water goes through much faster than paper filters.
Cleaning is a little more difficult than paper filter.

Other thoughts: When making ice coffee, I found that the paper filter makes much better tasting ice coffee because of the absence of residue. I will probably use this filter for oil-rich coffee beans and use the paper filter for ice coffees.

Very happy with the purchase...

Good points to consider:
- Flows equally compared to paper filters (back pressure is similar)
- Doesn't seem to leak out sides of plastic mesh cap of Aeropress
- Holes don't clog even with fine grind (also rinses easily)
- Sturdy not flimsy

Unknown:
- Durability

*Wet/rinse filter and Aeropress mesh cap and it'll stay when you flip it to cap the plunger*

UPDATE: Make sure that you regularly clear the filter and check by holding it up to the light to see how many of the holes are still blocked. If you don't, it will become progressively harder to press coffee.

UPDATE 11/12: Filter is quite durable with no noticeable wear. I have noticed that back pressure gets notably harder as grind size decreases.

I've had this for about a year now and it still looks brand new, so I'm going to say that this is the best aeropress metal filter out there. It lets all the flavors through and very little sediment (less than a french press). Here are some things you should know before purchasing.

-Unless you are one of those people who does the inverted brewing method and tinkers with grinds, steep times, etc.--you probably don't need this item. If you just got an aeropress to make a quick cup and don't obsess over complexities, then paper filters are fine.

-Don't buy it to save money or the planet. You can purchase about a billion paper filters for $16.50. Combined, all those years of paper filters have less mass than the daily newspaper. You are not reducing your carbon footprint nor are you saving the rain forest with this purchase.

-They are not hard to clean, contrary to what some have said. Look at the filter. Notice how the holes on the side that says "Able Brewing Equipment - made in the USA" are slightly smaller and not recessed? That side towards coffee and you won't have problems with sediment sticking in those little recessed holes. It took me all of 2 cups of coffee to figure that out.

This is just what I've been looking for since I got my Aeropress. The holes are very, very tiny, so it filters very well without just letting all the coffee drip through (though a bit more drips through than with a paper filter, as expected.) It works just fine with a fine grind.

I have been using Aeropress and its original micro filters since 2006. I just got and tried this S.S. filter for the 1st time. I didn't follow its enclosed instructions but instead use my usual method. A few differences that I immediate noticed while using this:

1) Now I have to stir the coffee + hot water mixture very slowly so that liquid doesn't overflow via the vents onto my cup prematurely. No problem, I can manage slow stirring.

2) It yields a cup of black liquid with NO crema! My most beloved crema is now nowhere to be seen. I was disappointed at that. BUT ... (please read on).

3) It generates less internal pressure as now pushing down is a lil' easier than with those old micro filters. Another not-so-good sign as I interpret high pressure = better taste in the espresso world. BUT ...

I took the first sip, OMG! Despite the above concerns, my coffee never tasted this good. The improvement is very drastic. It's so much fuller (not bitter) and more flavorful. Truly amazing what a different filter can do... This plus the Aeropress can make anyone a great barista.

We got this because it looked like a good alternative to paper filters. We were pleasantly surprised that it actually makes noticeably better coffee! If you have an aeropress, you need this!

A word of warning to those of you who have been using your Aeropress with paper filters for some time. The Stainless Steel permanent filter is a great idea and makes an excellent cup of coffee. Just be careful that you remember to remove it from the press before popping your grounds into the trash! I had gotten so used to the routine of cleaning my Aeropress that I did forget. I got distracted and popped the whole plug of grounds and filter into the trash, just like I was used to doing with the paper filters. And of course it happened to be trash day, so goodbye new filter. I will get another and do my best to remember it's there!
