For years, I've been bragging about the prototype filter I had from the inventor of the Aeropress - one that was photo-chemical etched, very precision holes, and it brewed what was by far the best Aeropress coffee I've ever had.
Now you don't have to hear me brag anymore. Because this year, Able Brewing released their latest generation DISK filter for the Aeropress, the DISK FINE, and it is every bit as good, if not better, than that old prototype. In fact, it is nearly perfect for the Aeropress.
A lot of thought and engineering has gone into this filter and the result is a fantastic brewed cup with the big fat plastic syringe we all know and love as the Aeropress coffee brewer. This is one of those must have choices if you have an Aeropress or plan to get one.
