Perky Brew Reusable Filter For Use With The Aeropress Coffee Maker – Ultra Fine Stainless Steel Coffee Filter – Many Copies But The Best From 2POUR – & makes for a great improvement in taste compared with paper filters

The advantages of the stainless steel rim is apparent from the brief amount of time that i have used the perky brew reusable filter. Without this the mesh would warp and bend over time. In fact i can feel that it has warped ever so slightly but this has been reduced greatly by the rim. I was keen to use a reusable filter for ecological reasons as well as cost but to be honest i’m considering going back to paper filters. The reusable filter does not make the same seal as a paper one, it is slightly smaller than the plastic filter cap. When you put the perky brew in you can see it moving around. The end result of this is far more sediment in your coffee than with a paer filter. To the point that i do not finish my cup of coffee as i know what lurks beneath.

Great – all the strength of expresso, in a desktop tool :d.

Definitely better than the paper filters which remove the crema.

  • Not as effective at filtering as the paper filters.
  • Four Stars
  • & makes for a great improvement in taste compared with paper filters

Does what it says on the tin.

Makes a great cup, but does take a little time to experiment.

Features of Reusable Filter For Use With The Aeropress Coffee Maker – Ultra Fine Stainless Steel Coffee Filter – Many Copies But The Best From 2POUR

  • The paper filters have a different taste. They remove the oils from the coffee which leaves a different flavour. By using reusable stainless filters, you can get the full flavour of the coffee, just like at the coffee shops. This filter will last years if looked after properly. Just rinse after use and use time and time again.
  • The filter uses 40,000 holes which we find is the best combination of grit removal and taste. Anything less and the grit gets let through, any more and we find the taste looses body. Obviously this is our personal choice.
  • Welded and full stainless ring offering years of use, saving paper and improving taste. Just rinse and air dry until next use.
  • Included in the gallery is a test filter without the rim protection after 2 months of use. As you can see it has been caught in the black cap during use at points through its life. The welded rim that is on our design keeps the shape of the lid and makes it easy to use the Aeropress in either the standard or upside down method.
  • Lifetime warranty. Any problems, we shall exchange. Enjoy!

Works perfectly, & makes for a great improvement in taste compared with paper filters.

  1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed after testing against paper filter

    This review is from : Reusable Filter For Use With The Aeropress Coffee Maker – Ultra Fine Stainless Steel Coffee Filter – Many Copies But The Best From 2POUR

    Ok here goes – i received the shiny new filter today and set about doing a taste comparison against the paper filters that come with the aeropress. I used a medium roast bean from starbucks (columbia narino) set to a medium grind (20/40 on my baratza encore) and made two identical coffees (single aeropress scoop, filled to two cups level with water off the boil), inversion method (the best way to use an aeropress), 60 seconds steeping followed by immediate press. Before commenting on the taste difference, i should mention that the thick rim on this metal filter means that you need a bit of effort to screw the filter holder on to the aeropress. If you are using the inversion method, make sure you are holding the aeropress by the body (not the plunger) and you don’t have the plunger end resting on the work surface – otherwise you will squirt coffee grinds and hot water all over your kitchen. I did this and had to restart the entire experiment after 10 minutes of cleaning. During pressing, i found that the water went through the metal filter much more easily than the paper filter – which was a concern. Because of the reduced pressure requirements for the metal filter (and possibly because metal v paper gives a different taste) i did notice a considerable difference in the taste. I am no expert on describing different coffee flavours, but for me, the metal filter resulted in comparatively under extracted taste and i will need to experiment with letting the coffee steep for longer. Based on my initial experiment, i prefer the paper filter but i will update this when i have experimented further. I also wonder whether the more expensive metal filters have a finer mesh.
