The disadvantages of disposable filters

Coffee drinkers can spend quite a bit of money and paper on coffee filters. According to the Huffington Post, the world consumes an average of 2.25 billion cups of it every day. If a third of those cups are made with paper filters, that's 750 million filters per day, 275 billion per year, or the equivalent of 1.5 million trees to make those filters. In terms of cost, it can also amount to anywhere between $20 to $70 every year, depending on the type of filter you use.

COFIL ceramic coffee filters

That's where the advantage of a ceramic filter comes in. If you're considering a ceramic filter as an eco-friendly and cost-saving alternative to disposable cloth or paper filters, COFIL ceramic filters from Japan's Imari-Togei Co., Ltd. are an excellent choice. Not only are they durable, but in an industry first, they use a proprietary manufacturing technique which makes it more difficult for the porous surface to get clogged with coffee sediments, a problem which has beleaguered ceramic filters until now.

Moreover, COFIL filters help you brew delicious coffee with a mild taste, free of impurities and the smell of chlorine which you'll sometimes notice with bleached paper filters.
