IMS Metal Filter for Aeropress



The search is over. This is easily the best filter we have tested for the Aeropress and it's now a permanent feature of our Aeropress set-up in our coffee shop. We agreed with most of what these guys found in their review - this filter somehow helps deliver more sweetness and it presents acidity really well compared to paper filters. 

Of course, it's great that you can re-use it. Its easy enough to clean and as usual with IMS gear, its precision made and should last a long, long time. Please note, this is the finer mesh (15 micron) version. 

Brewing tip! - we'd recommend grinding a bit coarser than you would with a paper filter and adding some brew time. We're currently using 14-15g doses and brewing for a total of 3 minutes instead of our usual 90 seconds.

Glad I took the plunge

Excellent. This filter simply makes good coffee taste even better. After much experimentation this is now my go to method of brewing.

Regarding the initial outlay, it's taken a few months and 100 plus cups of coffee to really appreciate the filters worth.

Thanks Kev, great to hear you are enjoying the filter. I agree that it does make for better brews so after a while the initial outlay starts to make sense. :)

Nice, but pricey

In my bid to save the planet I bought this on the recommendation of the folks at Foundry. You don't get a lot for your money but then again it's a filter. It's a very delicate looking thing but has a feeling of quality and precision about it. I *think* the coffee tastes better than it did with paper but I spent a lot of money on it so it's probably my brain telling my taste buds that it had better taste better. Who knows?

Thanks for the feedback Nick! They're not cheap thats for sure but this is the company that we use for precision shower screen for espresso machines too and they're good at making meshes! We love our metal filter and for us it's worth the cost as the results in the cup are so much better.
