Factors to Consider When Choosing Paper Coffee Filters

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 353

Coffee drinkers around the globe prefer it brewed and strong. This is the reason why coffee brewing machines were developed because the old-fashioned way of brewing is quite a tedious process. The modern brewing method uses a coffee maker. Ground coffee is placed on a brewing utensil - usually made of disposable coffee paper filters, where heated water passes through it. Since this filter is intended for one-time use and immediately disposed of after use, these are sold in several numbers of pieces per pack at wholesale office supplies outlets.

Why do coffee makers need disposable paper coffee filters? It is never a satisfying experience to drink a mug of coffee filled with the particles from ground coffee beans. One brews coffee to get precisely the taste and not the ground beans. Filters retain the particles and allow liquid coffee to pass through.

Why use paper filters and not something more durable and long lasting? Paper is the only filter material that can remove the oily substance in coffee called diterpenes - the organic compound in coffee found to aggravate the risk of a coronary heart disease.

What type of paper is used in the manufacture of paper coffee filters? Typically, coffee filters are made of 100-gsm crepe paper because of the material's special property that allows coffee to flow freely, while retaining the particles. Coarse long fibers from trees are made into filaments approximately 20 micrometers wide; enough gap space to allow particles less than 10 to 15 micrometers to pass through. Health buffs prefer to use unbleached coffee filters to avoid taking in doses of dioxin - the chemical substance used to bleach paper.

What factors must be considered when choosing the right paper coffee filters? Several types of filters are available with most wholesale office supplies outlets. However, choices must be guided by paper strength, compatibility, efficiency and capacity.

Filter strength refers to the ability of paper filter to resist tears or ruptures in the course of brewing. A material of less strength will allow coffee grains to collect into the coffee pot - a likely situation when the paper filter tears or ruptures.

Filter compatibility is breached when the paper material is not compatible with the liquid (coffee) passing through so that it degrades and resistance breaks down.

Filter efficiency is the character of paper filter to retain indefinitely the target size of particles it is devised to hold.

Filter capacity refers ti solving flow resistance problems, a character of the filter that can totally screen particle fragments and not hinder or slowdown the flow of liquid coffee.

Next time you are in the neighborhood wholesale office supplies outlet for your coffee maker needs, pick the type that promises efficiency.

Remember that the efficiency of the drip type coffee maker is dependent on the coffee paper filter sourced from the wholesale office supplies outlet.
