Metal Fabric Filter for the Aeropress Coffee Maker

$20,309

934

We can't wait to share our filter for the Aeropress with you. After months of testing, we have a filter that accommodates a wide range of grind sizes—allowing you to experience different flavor profiles from the same bean. Our prototypes consistently brew clean coffee with no paper taste or waste. These high-tech filters are made from an ultra-fine, food grade, reusable, stainless steel fabric. This is the ultimate filter for the Aeropress coffee maker. 

Key Benefits

  • Great tasting coffee through optimal micron level filtration
  • Easier to press than paper filters
  • Simple design is durable and easy to clean
  • Made in USA
  • Lasers make it extra awesome

How Clean is it?

To show the difference between the KoHi Labs stainless fabric filter and a fine perforated metal disc filter we brewed with each filter. Next we ran the brewed coffee back through the aeropress fitted with a paper filter to catch fines. Below you can see our filter brews noticeably cleaner.

Risks and challenges

This is our first venture into a hard goods product. Our biggest concern is being overwhelmed with backers, which would be a great problem to have. The filter production method is fairly new and requires sophisticated equipment to produce. We have our main source lined-up and ready to go once we have our deposit for the first run. We are vetting secondary/backup suppliers.
