These simple reusable coffee filters are the perfect alternative to disposable coffee filters. Easy to use, and all you need to do to clean them is compost the grounds, rinse, and hang to dry. Plus, even compostable filters take a lot of water to produce and carbon to transport, so reusable filters dramatically reduce the footprint of your morning coffee ritual.
Packaging: recyclable/compostable brown kraft paper box.
Care and Use: Initially, boil your filters in fresh water to clean and shrink for about 10 minutes. For a hot brew, brew as is customary with your favorite method, compost the grounds, and thoroughly rinse filter. Hang to dry. Periodically, once every 4-6 weeks, boil the filters in fresh water to remove any accumulated coffee oils. If you'd like, you can add a scoop of baking soda to the regular cleaning process to enhance your filter.
Footprint: The filters are made in Austin, TX. All filters are sewn and packaged by happy human beings making a fair and living wage. Their cotton is all GOTS certified organic (GOTS also monitors labor practices and working conditions), and currently grown in Texas, India, and Pakistan.
End of Life: If at some point you wish to dispose of a filter, they can be cut into strips and composted, since they are organic cotton.
