CAFEC | Abaca+ Conical Paper Filters (100pk)
- Other Info
Paper, but not just paper
The next generation of innovation in CAFEC's constant pursuit of greater efficiency and performance, Abaca+ Paper Filters are produced using a fine-grained crepe technique. By narrowing the distance between each crepe and increasing surface area with an even more uniform texture, Abaca+ filters are designed to allow a faster flow rate and to put control more firmly in the hands of skilled brewers.
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 the quality of cup they yield.
Pack of 100 filters.
Available in 1 Cup or 2-4 Cup formats.
Using a wet creping method with a wider speed gap between the rotating roll and dryer drum, the resultingly fine-grained crepe increases total surface area by narrowing the space between crepes rather than relying on the height of the crepes themselves.
With a more uniform texture and faster flow, Abaca+ filters are designed for experienced brewers who wish to control flow rate and brew time with their own skilled ability.
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.
Abaca+ filters are also Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified as their production meets traceability standards of sustainable forest management.
With a lower crepe height and correspondingly lower volume, Abaca+ filters are more efficient on a transport basis, further contributing to their eco-friendliness.
CAFEC Abaca paper filters are the official filter of the Japan Hand Drip Championship.
Made in Japan
Pioneers of paper coffee filter manufacturing since 1973, Sanyo Sangyo created the CAFEC brand in 2016 to tell their story and to share their passion for hand-drip coffee through the products they provide.
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.
