Melitta coffee filters

Ideally I would have liked to find these Melitta coffee filters with their matching coffee pots, but I’ve only ever sold a few complete sets, so I don’t think they’re too common. Luckily though it’s a nice simple design so these ceramic ‘filters’ should easily fit on top of other coffee pots. I’ve called them filters for lack of a better name, but in reality you still need a paper filter to fit on the inside of the ceramic, so I suppose a better name would probably be ‘filter holder’? The idea is that you pop the filter (ceramic with paper inside) on top of a coffee pot or cup (depending on the size of your filter), pour your grinds inside, fill the filter with hot water, and let the coffee drip through – it’s as simple as that!

Click here to watch a video of a someone’s who’s perfected the art of the Melitta pour over method – it obviously doesn’t need to be this obsessive, but if you’re seriously into your coffee this might interest you…..

P.S. Having finished writing this blog post I’ve just discovered that these filters are in fact called ‘brewing cones’!

Dimensions: Large brewing cone – 11cm tall x 12.5cm in diameter (at its widest); Small brewing cone – 7cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter (at its widest)

Prices: Large brewing cone – R110; Small brewing cone – R90
