Kone Coffee Filter Review – Chemex Permanent Filter

Able Brew Kone Filter

Kone Coffee Filter and ChemexThe Kone coffee filter from Able Brewing is a little expensive for a screen filter, I have to admit that, but it is indeed a great bit of gear.

The Kone is designed with micro filtering holes which serve to let through more of the flavors and oils from the coffee which we associate with French press coffee compared to paper filters whilst still producing a clean brew which we expect from a pour over.

Pour over with Hario V60

The Hario V60 coffee maker is one of my favorite brewing devices. I love drip coffee, but I am not exactly a fan of the automatic drip machines.

When I first saw a manual dripper in a coffee shop a few years ago, I was pleasantly surprised. I saw the barista behind the counter preparing coffee with a V60, and it looked so right. Coffee lovers were finally given the proper attention in a coffee shop.
