  • Syphon Paper Filter

    Hi all,

    I've recently switched from using cloth filters to paper filters in my Syphon. I'm using the same grind as I did with the cloth filters and I'm getting a heck of a lot of grinds in the bottom chamber. Is there any tricks of the trade to stop these grinds getting down without distorting the taste?

    Yep STOP using the paper filters YUCK and as much of a pain to have to pre rinse to try and stop the paper taint of your brew as cleaning the cloth ones.

    Sounds like you not getting a decent seal between the chamber and filter holder. If it is a metal one then check for a bow or bend in it. If it is a plastic one or it looks straight then your chamber may not be flat around the seal area. The Cloth will be a little more forgiving for seal over paper.

    I have tried both Hario and Kono paper filters BTW and cloth for me!
