Why we love the Swiss Gold FilterMarch 4th, 2010 by Amanda
Paper filters are not only wasteful, but they also alter the flavor of your coffee. Instead of allowing the lipids and oils in the coffee to filter through, the paper filters absorb them, leaving you with a less flavorful and thinner cup. Since paper isn’t an inert material, you end up extracting the flavor of the paper, too.
The Swiss Gold Filter is engineered to hold back large particles, while allowing the flavorful elements of the coffee to come through. You’ll end up with a richer, more full-bodied cup of coffee without any sludge at the bottom.
Unlike less expensive “gold tone” filters, which are usually golden-colored stainless steel, the Swiss Gold coffee filter is made of real 23-carat gold foil. Lower quality reusable coffee filters can give coffee a metallic taste, but with the Swiss Gold filter all you taste is delicious coffee.
You can use this filter in all models of Technivorm Moccamaster coffee brewer, as well as any brewing device that holds a # 4 filter.
