We only sell paper filters because coffee brewed using a paper filter tastes better than coffee brewed using a non paper (usually metal) filter plus a paper filter removes and a metal filter does not remove chemicals in coffee that raise your bad cholesterol. I would like to add that paper filters are both reusable many times and compostable right along with used coffee grounds. The manufacture of stainless steel filters is an energy consuming process that contributes to the pollution of our environment. Finally, 6,000 filters equal the same weight of paper as one daily newspaper.

- next post: Hi Alan. Been a huge fan of the aeropress. its my forth now. Got a question about the plunger seal. Half of my aeropress are pre 2018 (before silicone was used) and the other 2 are silicone based (I think as 1 is an aeropress go and the other has red lettering). Apart from being stickiness the thermoplaster elastomer can develop over time if the press is sitting idol, what drove you to change to silicone? was that only because of the stickiness or was there a difference in flavor of the brew. Thanks – From Daniel L.
