The Able Brewing Disk – Eco-Friendly Aeropress Stainless Steel Standard Filter
Using the Able Disk, a few things stand out immediately. Regular paper filters absorb your coffee’s natural oils, eliminating some of the flavours and aromas that they contribute. The Able Brewing stainless-steel filter allows the Coffees natural oils to slide right through, so the extraction produces a stronger, sharp-edged intense flavour that’s smooth with a clean mouthfeel.
It’s a great environmentally-friendly way of brewing your Aeropress coffee. Durable without the need to use a paper filter, it should serve you well for many years.
We’ve found that the Able Disk fits well on the top cap when screwed on tight without any side to side movement.
When plunging you need to use more force to get that Jet Black Coffee into your mug, but absolutely worth it!!!
**TOP TIP - place the Able Disk Filter with wording face-down on top of the holes of the Aeropress’s top cap.
**Not using a paper filter allows for more Cafestrol in coffee to be consumed. Cafestrol is known to elevate cholesterol levels so please take that into consideration with this product if that’s a concern for you.
Which Able Brewing Disk for the Aeropress Coffee Maker should I get – Standard of Fine???
STANDARD: This Able Disk produces a fuller body cup of coffee with a few more Coffee fines as the holes are bigger. Its a lot thicker than the Able Brewer Fine Disk so it should stand the test of time and heavy use (especially in our house) a little more as its harder to bend or damage.
FINE: This Able Aeropress Filter Disk has much finer holes so fewer Coffee fines get in the cup and it produces a very sweet clean cup of coffee - you can produce a coffee that comes much closer to paper filter brew, without the papery taste. It is approximately a third of the thickness of the Able Standard Disk and should be handled a little more delicately as it’s not as robust.
During our testing, we compared the Standard Vs the Fine Vs Paper, and the fine and paper tasted similar, whereas the standard produced more of a richer taste but had some Coffee fines in it.
