Porcelain coffee filter cone.

QUESTION:


I have just thrown out a broken down coffee pot and do not want plastic insides anymore (health concerns). So far I have not found an all stainless steel, inside pipes, basket, etc., and the only thing I have looked at is the chemex and I am not too sure if the unbleached filters have some chemical in them. Where would I find a single cone filter to use for one cup? Do not want a Keurig because I believe there is some plastic involved.


ANSWER:

Certainly you can buy a porcelain filter cone and make your coffee that way. This is a great way to make coffee.

We have a video on making coffee with a filter cone here.

Filter cones are slowly rising in popularity as people realize that they don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars on a fancy brewer to make good coffee.

That said, as with the Chemex coffee maker, you will still have to buy paper filters to use with the filter cone.

Google: stainless steel cone coffee filter
by: Anonymous

Paper filter might been replaced with reusable stainless steel /gold plated cone coffee filter - cutting out extra spending for paper filters and massive amount of plastic from the brewer [coffee machine].

I would like to find a single serve (or 2-cup) cone made from corning or clear glass. Would you have that too? I saw it on a show on PBS some time ago - the show was all about coffee.
