The lowly coffee filter.
The fact is, there's a lot more to a paper coffee filter than meets the eye, and when your goal is to brew fantastic specialty coffee, you can't afford to take your eye off the target. Premium specialty coffee demands a premium coffee filter, and the Shop Filters from Kalita are the best of the best.
What does the "best of the best" mean? It starts with producing the cleanest filter paper available, and at an optimal thickness and porosity. The Shop Filters are not only the heaviest paper (helping you produce a slower, fuller extraction), but the cleanest. Many professional baristas use Kalita Shop Filters without needing a pre-rinse–they're that clean!
If you didn't know, Kalita started as a coffee filter manufacturing company, and currently produces 4 different quality-levels of white paper filter in the "truncated cone" shape alone. The Shop Filters are their top-line, and are designed specifically for specialty coffee professionals. They're so special that they don't appear on Kalita Japan's website, but we're happy to be able to offer them to the North American specialty coffee community.
