These are NOT your typical HIC filter cones that are made in China!
Manufactured in Germany, in the city of Solingen, world renowed for their high quailty steel production.
This #2 Porcelain wedge shaped coffee filter cone holder sits nicely atop most coffee mugs and thermoses, for a direct brew-in cup experience. Made from hard vitrified porcelain, this is not your typical plastic coffee filter cone!
Just set the cone on top of your cup, use either a paper filter, or a metal filter if available, add coffee, and hot water!
When using a paper filter, you will need to use a medium grind coffee to allow for proper filter drainage, when using a permanent metal filter, the grind size is less critical due to the better drainage. The unit has one drainage hole in the bottom of the cone, approximately 1/4" dia.
We have placed this filter cone on our website in amongst our Swissgold filters, although its not actually gold plated. These units are made from high quality hard porcelain refractory, fired at a whopping 2372 degrees for extra hardness, and are especially great if you are looking to eliminate plastic from coming in contact with your daily brew.
We recommend pre-heating these units with hot water before making your cup of joe to bring the unit up to temperature so your coffee stays as hot as you like it!
