I got the stainless steel filters a week ago, and it really transforms the cup. If you're into non paper filter brewing methods such as french press, you know that paper filters will retain a lot of the oils from the grind that gives coffee it's flavor. With this product, you have the option to keep these oils in your cup rather than throwing it out with the paper. This results in a more oily cup akin to what you would get with a French press. Another plus is that you can use this with a really fine grind (I use in between espresso and auto-drop coarseness) without getting grounds in your cup. Try with both paper and stainless filters to taste the difference.
This product is high quality, and includes two in each package (in case you lose one, don't forget to take it off the puck when discarding!). The product is well constructed and easy to clean. This is the perfect companion product for the aeropress, and a great product for the coffee nerd in your life.
My perfect cup, americano style:
2 heaping tbsp (varies) fresh fine ground coffee in the aeropress (non inverted position).
Boiling water up to the 1.5 line.
Stir immediately, brew for 20 seconds.
Press slowly over 20 seconds into the cup.
Add desired amount of hot water for the strength of the cup.
Alternatively, press into a pint glass, add a little less volume of cold water, finish with ice to yield a great iced americano. Add a twist of lemon peel for an Italian flavor. Great for the summer.
Paper Filters: (used this as a baseline)
- Great Taste
- Non-Messy cleanup.
-"Filters out oils"
-One time use.
- 2/3 of the holes clogged after about 3 days of light use. Other buyers have been reporting the same.
- Harsh taste. Didn't notice any extra oiliness in my coffee.
- Price! 2 for 1
- Coffee is noticeably more oily.
-Brews a smooooooth cup. No harshness noted.
Seems flimsier than the Able Disk. But then again, the Able is a solid sheet of metal whereas the Slimm seems to be made of a mesh-like material.
I thought the coffee would taste better and and I would save the world from paper filter waste. I didn't notice a taste difference.
Maybe if there was a tab that allowed you to grab the filter to clean it? After three weeks of Coffee grounds everywhere and trying to quickly clean the filter and digging it out of the trash can at O'Dark Thirty, Im going back to paper filters. I tried...
Some time after posting an update to my original review, Amazon sent me a full refund for my purchase. A day later I found an email in my inbox from the company that makes the filter. In it the representative explained that my email, in which I had replied with a shipping address for a replacement, had gone to the spam inbox and was recently discovered. Although the original intent was to send me a replacement for one of the two filters I had purchased (equaling a 50% refund in value) due to the long delay in responding the company was issuing me a full refund. Well done.
After using this product off and on for a few weeks, the metal frame that surrounds the filter screen began to separate. I contacted the maker to let them know so that they could make design changes if it was becoming a common problem rather than a one off flaw. The man who answered my email asked for my address so that he could send me a replacement. A replacement never arrived so after a reasonable time I sent a follow up email in case my first response had gotten lost or forgotten. I never received a reply or a replacement. I won't bother to pursue this further because I have no expectation at this point of receiving a reply or replacement but I decided to amend my review to reflect my experience.
There was no animosity from my end in our communications and the original reply I received was also cordial. It's just that the representative never followed through. I'm not going to purchase this item again so I can't say if my experience was a unique one as far as the separation of the frame on the filter. But if other people give similar reviews there will be good reason to go back to the drawing board as far as the design.
FYI, this item was carefully used, hand-washed and set on a towel on the counter to dry after use. So it was not subject to rough handling or high water temperatures other than brewing coffee. I also used the upside-down brewing technique so the hot water from brewing did not sit on the filter for longer than the time it takes to press the coffee through through the Aeropress. I suspect that the spot welds are not strong enough.
My Original Review:
When I purchased my S-filters I was only looking for a way to avoid having to refill paper filters for the Aeropress I had just ordered. While waiting for both my Aeropress and my S-filters to arrive I did some online research and learned that the S-filter had undergone some changes that made the filter even better than prior version and that the S-filter was preferred by many people for several reasons including what some seemed to think was a better brew. So, lucky me. Without even realizing it, I had potentially upgraded my Aeropress with this order.
The filter lives up to the good reviews. It is thin enough to fit easily in the Aeropress. It should be the only filter I'll ever need and it does a wonderful job of filtering my coffee. I can't compare it to other metal filters but I can promise that it is a very fine filter. Even with a finer grind the grounds do not get stuck in the mesh, they up just rinse right off, so cleaning up is a snap. The coffee tastes great. What more is there to say?
After making a few cups I do prefer the inverted method of brewing to keep all the water inside until I'm ready to press but it's not a difficult method by any means.
It is definitely a tight fit so some additional effort is needed to screw the drain cap on, but I didn't mind this because extra thickness of the metal ring is necessary; otherwise it will bend and the screen will wear out in no time.
It was immediately obvious I don't need as much coffee to achieve my desired taste, which certainly only adds to its value. Water does move through the AeroPress a bit faster, though not so fast it's an issue; you just need to be aware it will do this.
Overall I'm very happy with the product.
Before I purchased the screen I read a bunch of reviews, especially negative, and was very impressed with the diligence the company demonstrated by communicating with any dissatisfied customers. They offered the necessary remedies to accommodate them.
That demonstrated integrity to me and gave me the 'go ahead' incentive...and it's paid off.
I will keep these filters in case we happen to temporarily run out of paper ones, however my reason for ordering them was to check them out for permanently replacing the paper filters.
They won't. Not for me. The metal filter leaves substantial grit in my normally super clean Aeropress coffee. I'd say about a 1/16 of a teaspoon per 12oz cup, where the paper leaves virtually zero grit.
Worse, this product actually cripples the Aeropress from doing it's proper work. Here's how: water flow and brew timing is thrown off because the hot water drains too quickly from the tube, so as you're pouring in the water it's quickly draining out the bottom and the whole flow timing is just wrong. I tried it several times and ended up with nearly a full 12oz coffee instead of the 6oz "double expresso" you normally get after a press with water up to the "2." This filter seller includes a link to a "manual" that describes another brewing method that turns the Aeropress upside down and lets the coffee grinds sit in the hot water up for 2-3 minutes to 'more precisely control the flow,' as they say, but that method completely defeats the stated mission of the Aeropress, which is to allow minimal time of contact between the water and the coffee grounds, which reduces natural bitterness.
I LOVE my Aeropress and have used it for many years and have given many as gifts to grateful recipients because is one of those rare products that uses the least amount of parts and complexity to do a supreme job (of an ancient task) and is perfect just as it was released. Have to go now and order some more paper filters.
The metal rim of these filters is *much* thicker than the filter paper, and a moderate amount of force is required to attach the grate to the tube with the metal filter in place. Enough that it's no longer practical to do the upside-down method, since you would risk spilling very hot coffee sludge all over your kitchen.
That's disappointing to me, but in terms of the fundamentals, the grating fits, is easy enough to clean, and, unlike the papers, is reusable. Those of you who use the right-side-up method will find this preferable to the papers-- those of you who use the upside-down method should stick with them.
