      In case you missed it, we have RE-LAUNCHED the FLTRgo campaign with BETTER PRICING. In less than a day, we have already reached 64% toward our goal! We have a limited number of Super Early Bird - Rewards which is the best price the FLTRgo will ever be. Go to the link below to check out our relaunched campaign.

      Thank you!

      Hi Annie. We are relaunching next Tuesday and we will still be making the same original design. But, we will research how we could incorporate that idea into future products. Thanks again for your interest in the FLTRgo. -Justin

      Heard you're going to relaunch - maybe now you can make it a replaceable filter - to last as long as the bamboo then?!

      Hello Kai,

      I know I responded in a message but wanted to make this answer public since we have many tea drinkers and have seen similar questions in emails and Facebook messages. We made sure we tested the FLTRgo with tea before answering. Our results are below.

      Yes! The FLTRgo can be used with tea. The process is slightly different.
      1. Set the FLTRgo inside the mug.
      2. Add the loose tea inside the filter.
      3. Pour hot water until it reaches the top of the filter (or the mug).
      4. Let steep to desired strength.
      5. Remove filter letting excess water drain into mug.
      6. Enjoy your tea.

      Note- If you drink both tea and coffee, it is best to not use the same FLTRgo.

      Thanks again for backing FLTRgo!

      Have you tried using the FLTRgo with tea?

    6. Justin Baird 2-time creator on August 25, 2017

      Hi Annie. Thank you for backing the FLTRgo. Our aim was to create a very simple solution that could be used time and time again. In the future, we hope to adjust the design and capabilities of the FLTRgo, including a model with replaceable filters. In the meantime, we're really glad to create a filter that equals hundreds of disposable paper filters.Thanks again for supporting us and for your feedback. We appreciate it and are listening.

      Just bought one. But am surprised to find out you don't sell replaceable filters - the bamboo will definitely last long enough ... I got the impression that it was screwed together, which would've been a really good idea - truly eco if it could last longer ...?!

      You're welcome, James!

      Thank you Justin

      Great question Keely. In this design, the filter is integrated into the bamboo ring and cannot be replaced. However, with proper care, and depending on how many time you use it per day, the FLTRgo could last more than a year.

      Since it's reusable for 100s of times, will there be replacement filters? Or will we have to buy a brand new filter in however many months/years?

      Thank you so much. That will give me some benchmark to start with at least :)

      All the best. I teally hope this goes through :)

      4 tablespoons to 4 cups of water would be 1:16 ratio. Of course, trial and error to your personal taste will give you your perfect cup of coffee.

      The FLTRgo is designed to work best with a pour over sized grind, but, it will work with any size grind of coffee. Though, in our tests, the finer the grind, the longer it takes to make a cup.

      @Justin Baird
      Thanks for getting back. But I ain't exactly well verse on the ratio and tend to do my coffee based on trial and error and number of table spoons of ground coffee. So when you say 1:15, do you mean like 4 table spoons of coffee grounds to 4 cups of water? :)

      Are you saying your FLTRgo can accommodate multiple grind sizes? I was assuming based on the design and method, the FLTRgo only accommodates filter sized (Pour over) ground coffee.

    15. Justin Baird 2-time creator on August 16, 2017

      Great question!

      Between 1:15 ratio (Coffee Grounds to Water) and 1:18 ratio are most commonly used but your personal taste, how fine or coarse you grind your beans, the kind of bean, and the style of roast all factor into the final flavor profile.

      hey there,

      Just asking whether you have any recipes (like how many table spoons of coffee grinds, etc..) for this? :)

      Good luck
