Product Description

Frieling Gold Coffee Filter is high quality 19/10 stainless steel, foil-coated with gold tone. The foil is designed with minuscule opening to allow the flavor carriers (colloids) to pass while holding back all solids. Easy to clean, no residue build-up and no waster. Think of foil filters as "smart" filters", they know you want desirable flavors and aromas in your cup, but not the undesirable sediment. Gold Filter #4 fits all coffee machines that use a #4 cone filter for 6 - 12 cups.

I had a Swiss Gold coffee filter a few years ago, and I used it several times w/ regular grind coffee. I always had grounds/sludge in the bottom of the pot.

I gave away the Swiss Gold and went back to paper filters, but I'm trying to economize and "go green," so I thought I would try one of these again and just learn to live with the grounds in the pot, or maybe strain them out with a tea strainer when I poured from the carafe or something.

So, I ordered this Frieling Gold Coffee Filter last week, and the holes in it are smaller than on the Swiss Gold. Guess what: NO GROUNDS IN THE POT! NO SLUDGE!

If you use a fine grind, I would guess you MIGHT have some grounds get through, but with a regular, commercial grind, no problems. In the morning, I just want my coffee quick, and I either use commercially prepared regular grind coffee or grind my own on medium.

I have a Krups coffee / espresso "combo" machine.

I ordered this to pair with a Bonavita BV1800 8-Cup Coffee Maker with Glass Carafe, Brushed Aluminum after I got tired of messing with paper filters' cost and waste.

The filter fits perfectly in the Bonavita (and presumably other #4 filter holders), and seems to be reasonably sturdy. I alternate washing it by hand and dishwashing (top rack), and it looks as good after three months as it did when new.

As for the grind, I use freshly ground beans, ground on a medium fine setting with a Jura-Capresso 560 Infinity Conical Burr Grinder, Brushed Silver, 8.5-Ounce grinder.

I have not had issues with sludge or coffee that is weak: it has been well brewed every time, perhaps a bit on the strong side. You can easily tell that it's not a paper filter, too: the coffee oils are (slightly) visible in the brewed coffee. If you worry about those, then you should stick with paper.

For the price and quality of the coffee so far, I can recommend it. Cheers!

I use my Frieling Gold filter every day and am VERY happy with it. The mesh is very fine - much finer than the mesh I had with my old Braun machine. A very fine mesh makes for less sediment while still allowing some of the coffee oils to pass through. So if you are wondering if you should pay $20 instead of $5 for your gold filter my answer is a definite YES.

That said, it is not a paper filter. Some oils will come through to your coffee - if you like a bit of oil/flavor/bitterness in your coffee that is a good thing. If not, you should stick with paper filters. Also, even with the Frieling there will be some fine dust/sediment in the bottom of your mug. I prefer the flavor a gold filter allows to pass into the coffee so I am willing to not drink the bottom 1/4" of my cup. Again if not, you should stick with paper filters.

I home brew my own Turmeric tea. I buy the organic powder and simmer it with other ingredients like ginger. However, I have had trouble finding a good strainer so that I am not swallowing clumps of the powder. Frustrated, one day I decided to use my parents coffee filter as a strainer and happily got some improved results. So thereafter I went on Amazon to see if I could buy a better filter then the one included in my parents Breville coffee maker which was really really expensive.

The Frieling filter had great reviews and I decided to try it out and add to the consensus that this filter is superb.It allows me to filter out the finely grained powder from the tea so that I can enjoy the WHOLE cup I brew. Before I would get close to the end of my mug and swallow clumps of powder (that didn't fully dissolve after 10 min of good simmering), which really ruined the experience but not anymore.

This filter allows me to throw together any combo of ingredients into a small pot and then filter the remnants out without concern, so that I can enjoy every last sip of my tea!!!! Great buy!

I ordered a permanent filter because the paper ones were too thin and when wet, were folding, not allowing the water to go through the coffee, essentially making the coffee weak.

This filter's mesh is excellent quality allowing for a coffee that is the most suitable to my taste. It fits perfectly in the basket on my coffee maker. There will be some particulates in the bottom of your coffee cup as the result of finely ground coffee, but it has not been a problem for me.

My opinion is that this product produces a better tasting coffee without the residual taste of paper filters. There is also some economic benefit from not having to purchase filters continually. This filter should last for years if it is handled properly. I knock off the most of the grounds for compost or trash then rinse out the remaining grounds. I never scrub or use a brush as this would probably reduce the integrity of the fine metal mesh.

I was hoping that this product would obviate the need for paper filters in my Technivorm Moccamster coffee maker. Unfortunately, the water pours thru too quickly and the coffee is weak with little flavor. So for my intended purpose, this was a complete failure.

Back to paper filters for me.
