PAPER, BUT NOT JUST PAPER
Composed with a blend of non-wood Abaca (also known as Manila hemp) and wood pulp, CAFEC Abaca Paper Filters feature good air and liquid permeability, strength and elasticity, and are highly regarded for their quality and performance.
Produced using a through air drying technique, CAFEC's Abaca Paper Filters feature two-sided crepe texturing, with the inside crepe enhancing the total surface area to allow for fines adhesion without obstructing water path, and the outside crepe maintaining a cushion of air between the filter and dripper.
Together with CAFEC's fine-mesh paper texture, the composition of these filters promotes a stable and speedy flow of water for consistent brewing conditions.
Pack of 100 filters.
Available in 101 (No. 1; 1-2 Cup), 102 (No. 2; 3-5 Cup) or 103 (No. 4; 5-7 Cup), and in White (Oxygen Bleached) or Brown (Unbleached) paper.
Derived from a species of banana native to the Philippines, Abaca (also known as Manila hemp) fibers are four times as strong and only half as thick as wood fibers.
The inclusion of Abaca—a more easily renewable photosynthetic biological organism—in the composition of these filters earns them the Biomass Mark certification in recognition of their environmental consideration.
CAFEC Abaca paper filters are the official filter of the Japan Hand Drip Championship.
Through air drying paper in a flat state (versus rotary drum drying) produces two-sided crepe texturing with maintained crepe height.
Inside crepe enhances total surface area to maintain smooth water path despite fines adhesion; outside crepe maintains a layer of air between filter and dripper to promote steady flow.
Fine mesh paper facilitates stable flow of water with superior clarity in the cup.

Empowering home and professional baristas with high-quality brewing tools, CAFEC's designs are meticulously studied and crafted to make delicious coffee easier and more accessible to those who enjoy it, and to fill you—and your cup—with happiness in the process.
USE & CARE
As with any paper filter, you may optionally rinse through with hot water to remove any remaining paper taste prior to your brew.
