We did use a lot of white Melitta number 4 filter in the past. We needed them in our bar at Hopland to go into our Clever Drippers. And in the Mocca Master brewers.
Very often we were cursing though, when - once again - they busted and so we started putting 2 in after a while.
Very expensive at the end of the line and more work as well.
These Filtropa filters seem to be much stronger and still not expensive at all.
Since this week we have them available in our shop at Caffenation.
First we have to finish the small boxes of 40 pieces (at €1,40), but later on the normal sized boxes with 100 will be available at €2,45/box.
Here a small discription on the Filtropa's by Sweet Maria's, who's selling them since a while :
"The Filtropa are my favorite cone-type filters. They don't impart much paper taste and are very sturdy. I think they are far superior to the flimsy Melitta filters that have busted at the seams while I have brewed my coffee on many occasions. The filter is bonded without the use of any glues or chemicals, and the paper stock is certified dioxin-free. Filtropa uses an oxygen-based whitening process which produces a totally chlorine free paper."
