If you're like some of our members at CoffeeGeek, you don't like paper filters for coffee, and cleaning cloth is a pain in the butt.
We were hoping that Hario would release their all metal and silicone siphon filter in time for this year's HGL but they have not. But don't despair, we still have options! And one of the better ones out there is this filter assembly from Yama for just about any siphon on the market.
Yama developed a super fine steel mesh insert to use in their metal filter assembly designed for paper. It's easy to clean, very durable, and the super-fine mesh pattern helps keep sediment at bay and properly restrict the flow of coffee.
Bonus - replacement parts are easily available and unlike the forthcoming Hario filter, this one won't break the bank!
