After months of experimenting, this is what I found works best: coarse grind by hand about 1lb of Coffee Bean Direct Indian Monsooned Malabar. Let it sit in the brewer for about 24 hours, then fill up the water container about half way and let it sit for another 24 hours. I drink 2 large cups of coffee a day and this lasts me about 10 days. To heat it up, I have an electric percolator connected to a digital timer so it's ready when I get up in the morning, and exactly the right temp - hot, but not mouth-burning hot. I use 6oz of concentrate to 20oz of water. What's nice about the concentrated coffee is that if you brew it a little weak, you just up the amount of concentrate you use! I've also used Kicking Horse Three Sisters coffee with very good results, and 8 O'Clock coffee. Medium roasts seem to do best. If anyone else has found a good coffee to use in the Filtron, please share!
It's simply a joy to use. You don't have to fuss over adding the water, carefully introducing it by hand to avoid dry pockets or sudden air bubble upheavals. Just set the reservoir on top and walk away. It never clogs. The proprietary filters last indefinitely if you take care to boil them clean from time to time. You don't have to stress about breaking the carafe.
I love this thing.
I started looking for something simple, easy to use and clean up, and of course, made great coffee. This is it. It's very easy to use. It takes less than five minutes to start, and just seconds to drain the coffee into the carafe the next day. (You have to wait for it to brew and drain, etc. but the time you have to interact with it is minimal, and you'll get into a rhythm so you know when it's time to brew more, so you always have some on hand. Think "crock pot", start it, leave it, come back later and it's done.)
To get the most of my pound of coffee, I like to add half the water again to get more concentrate from a pound of coffee. I put both batches into a gallon measuring cup to mix them, and then store them in two Fltron Tip-N-Pour Container; one for home and one for work. I found 2.5 ounces to a typical coffee mug is just right. (That's a 3/1 ratio of water to concentrate.)
I brew about every two weeks, and I make and enjoy every cup of coffee. I use every penny of the coffee, nothing is wasted. I used to throw out half of my drip brewed coffee, and it didn't taste as good.
At the recommendation of a previous reviewer, I bought these filters: Bunn 18X6 3 gallon, 18 Inch by 6 Inch, Biodegradable Coffee Filter (Case of 250). They are very affordable, and they are large, but work well. You just fold them over to envelope the coffee completely. (I have filters now for the rest of my life, I think.)
One suggestion that can save you some trouble - the handle is detachable, to pack it into the box. It easily slides into the side of the brewing container. If you apply any upward pressure on the brewer while holding onto the handle, the handle can easily slip back out. This happened to me as I was replacing the plug for my second brewing cycle on a pound of coffee. Trust me, juggling a one pound bucket of wet coffee grounds in your kitchen isn't a lot of fun. So, super glue the handle into the brewer, and you shouldn't have to worry about a catastrophic coffee ground spill.
Simple, easy to use, easy to clean up, coffee for two weeks, and the best coffee you'll ever have makes this the best coffee maker I've ever owned!
