Product Description

"There's no paper taste, and it produces a really clean, delicious cup of coffee." - Bronwen, US Barista Champion 2004.

The S Filter is an ultra fine stainless steel filter for AeroPress coffee makers. It's designed to brew beautifully and never break. We designed the S filter ourselves, and every S Filter we sell is covered by our unconditional lifetime guarantee: you can return or exchange an S Filter you buy from us any time, for any reason.

Investing in an S Filter means investing in a quality, US-made product that will last a lifetime. We created the S Filter to fit your AeroPress precisely (it's 2.45" wide and .017" thin). We weld each filter on both sides to ensure quality, and we use only 100% stainless steel so your filter will be strong enough to brew coffee thousands of times without breaking. Plus, each S Filter has more than 50,000 holes per square inch so your coffee stays clean, delicious and grit-free cup after cup!

S Filter FAQ's

How do I clean the S Filter? Rinse your S Filter under running water. The S Filter is also dishwasher safe.

What's the difference between the S Filter and paper? Paper filters trap flavor oils and coffee particles. We created the S Filter to capture the advantages of paper (trapping fine coffee particles) while preserving the full flavor of a French press coffee (by allowing flavorful coffee oils into your cup).

How does the S Filter compare with other metal filters? The S Filter has much smaller holes than any other metal filter, so it brews a very clean cup with fewer coffee fines than other metal filters.

No more paper filters.

This filter allows oils to pass through freely, while keeping fine grounds out of the cup.
Great customer service and a great product.

I ordered one of these filters in November, and within a couple weeks of daily use and careful hand-washing it started to come apart.

Needless to say I was pretty disappointed. However, the filter was still functional, as it's more or less held together when the aeropress parts are assembled. So, honestly, at that point it was primarily a cosmetic irritation. I was annoyed, but I still wasn't sure that I was free of blame. Had I misused it? Had I thrown it in the dishwasher? Would the dishwasher be enough to ruin the filter? I didn't know, so I wasn't quick to write the seller and complain.

Eventually I did send them a note, and they were absolutely great to deal with. They replaced my filter hassle-free.

By this time I'd figured out what the issue was; the mesh of the filter is adhered to a metal ring. In the amazon picture you can see what I consider to be the bottom of the filter. You can see it appears to be 'stitched' to a ring. My advice to anyone considering this filter but is put off by breakage -- just make sure you use the filter with the ring side up. This way, the twisting motion of assembling the aeropress does not put unnecessary force on the 'stitching'. Combined with gentle hand-rinsing, there's no reason the filter shouldn't last you a good, long time.

I have been loving my Aeropress for over a year now and have one for work and one for home. Compared to the French press, the Aeropress definitely improves the quality and efficiency of the brewing experience. However, even so, the paper filters are the weakness in my opinion. I've seen the other steel filter out for awhile for the Aeropress but didn't try it because reviews I had read stated it was too porous and let too much grit thru. However, when I saw this on Kickstarter and read the pre-review from Marco Arment ([...]), it sounded like this problem had been solved because the mesh was fine enough to keep most of the grit out. I've had my S Filter for a week now and have pressed at least 20 times thru it. I think Nate & John have nailed it. The back pressure is about right when pressing and I feel that I can taste a difference with my routine press recipe (below). I feel like there is definitely more flavor in the cup and while a super fine residue remains if you leave your cup dry after finishing it, I don't feel it or taste it in the last sip. It cleans up well and makes one less piece to have to stock up on over time. I just ordered my second filter for work so I don't have to transport it back and forth. Thanks guys!

My favorite recipe lately is a slightly heaping scoop (15-17 g) of Starbuck's Dark Sumatra roast purchased in beans and ground finely (espresso). I do an inverted press with the plunger on the 4 and then fill with water to about the 1. I let it steep for maybe a minute after stirring. Then I press all the way thru, including the air. I really think that the oils are in the last foamy part of the press. Then I dilute that to bring the amount pressed into the mug to about 1.5 cm from the top.

I've been an AeroPress fan and user for years, but I've always found the paper filters frustrating, they're really not all that reusable, they tend to clog very quickly with the fine grinds I prefer. I just bought an S filter, and after a week, I'm very impressed - definitely more convenient and easier to use, and the big benefit I was not expecting was a big improvement in taste (which wasn't at all bad to begin with, AeroPress already made the best coffee I've ever had) - I was thinking it was a new bag of mail-order fair trade beans that were just delivered, but I tried an old bag of regular store bought Eight O'Clock beans, to much the same effect. Aeropress already made the best coffee I've ever had, so to get such a dramatic further improvement in flavor is really quite remarkable.

So really, I just wanted to say Thanks! Great product! :-)

In fact, I just ordered another one for the office.

First off, I don't consider myself a coffee aficionado by any means. I first got into Aeropress when my old drip machine died, and while it definitely tasted better than the drip coffee I was used to, I felt like the whole experience was more than a little overrated by the coffee community. Not so, after using the S filter. I "get it" now. I have seen the light.

Maybe it's just the nature of the paper filter, but every bean I've run through this filter has produced an infinitely tastier cup of coffee than with the paper filters. You can actually see and taste the oils that you just don't get with a paper filter, and you get that nice, slightly thicker bit of coffee at the bottom of the cup. I actually feel full drinking it, and it even tastes great "black." Gone are the days of turning my coffee into coffee-flavored sugar milk just to make it palatable.

Cleanup is easy, and it's convenient not having to pre-soak like with the paper filters.

Packaging is simple but well thought-out, and the build quality appears sturdy. I was worried that the filter might not hold up to the stress of daily use, but after pressing at least two cups a day into it for a couple months now, I feel confident that it will last me more than long enough to get my money's worth.

As far as I'm concerned this filter should come with every Aeropress. Must have, especially if you prefer a thicker coffee.

Update: Over a year later and my S filter is still holding strong. I still recommend this product to anyone who uses an Aeropress with any regularity.
