Gold is meant to be reused, again and again. With this permanent 23 carat gold coffee filter you'll no longer need to buy filter paper, making it a more environmentally friendly option. Easy and light to transport, it's an ideal product to take to work or for making coffee on the go(ld).
As the coffee doesn't go through a paper filter, you'll get a different taste. The gold filter ensures that the oils from the coffee beans are part of the brewing process, giving a richer taste. (Gold = rich, easy math.)
WHEN THEY ASK, YOU SAY:
"The magic of Cores cone filters is that the holes are longitudinal. Whereas other permanent filters might have round holes, which can be blocked by grounds, these rectangular holes allow the water to flow out. Not only rectangular and longitudinal, these holes are punched from the inside out, encouraging water flow to go the same direction. The gold plating doesn't react with the brewing process in any way – there's no taste from the metal or paper affecting the brew."
Please note that we recommend to hand wash with love, not dish wash. Also, be aware that you will get some sediment in your cup as there is no filter paper.
