While the paper filters that ship with the AeroPress do their job very well, dedicated users of the device will find a lot of value in owning reusable metal filters. A metal filter provides value by altering the qualities of your coffee in interesting ways as well as making your brewing routine more sustainable and convenient. This official stainless steel filter comes straight from the makers of the AeroPress and is a great way to upgrade your beloved coffee maker.
About AeroPress Stainless Steel Filter
A metal AeroPress filter has many advantages. For one, it significantly alters the flavour profile of your coffee in a way many coffee lovers will enjoy. Compared to a paper filter, a metal filter will allow more oils and a little more sediment from the coffee to make it into the cup, adding to both the flavour and the body. Whether or not this is desirable to you depends on personal preference, of course, but for those who like a full-bodied cup, particularly, the metal filter may be the best choice.
Using a metal filter also reduces your environmental impact by removing anything disposable from the brewing equation (except the coffee) and it may prove more convenient. There's no need to burn through one (or more) paper filters for every cup you make when the reusable filter is easy to wash and reuse. This metal filter can be rinsed quickly by hand and is also dishwasher safe. Gone are the days of realising that you're out of filters, just when you were about to make a cup of coffee.
Of course, metal filters for the AeroPress have been around for many years, but they have all been made by third parties. As an official AeroPress product, you can be sure that this metal filter is compatible with all AeroPress models and will be made with the same high-quality standards as all AeroPress products. Made from high-quality 316 stainless steel, the AeroPress metal filter should last a lifetime if cared for properly, and add something new to your AeroPress brew.
Using the AeroPress Stainless Steel Filter
While the AeroPress Stainless Steel Filter is a great addition to your setup, it does require some adjustments to your variables to get the best results. Specifically, choosing your grind size is very important as this directly affects how the coffee will flow through the filter. Like everything in coffee, balance is key, and finding that balance may take some experimentation. We’d typically recommend going a little bit finer on your grinder than you would using paper filters as a starting point to getting enjoyable coffee with metal filters.
