Why Not French Press Or Reusable Metal Filters?
Cotton Absorbs Some Of The Oils Released From Coffee Beans Yet Lets Acids Pass Through. The Resulting Balanced Brew Is Clear, Crisp, Rich And Robust With All The Acid Of Paper Brewed Coffee, Without The Paper Taste, And All Of The Richness Of French Press Without The Heavy Oiliness.
2.25 Billion Cups Of Coffee Are Consumed Per Day Globally.
That Could Equate To Over 140 Million Filters If Only Half Of Those Cups Came From 8 Cup Brews Using A Filter.
Each CS Filter Purchased Keeps At Least 365 Filters Per Year Out Of The Landfills. That Is 4-12 Cases Per Year.
If 1/3 Of The 2.25 Billion Cups Of Coffee Consumed Globally Per Day Were Made With Paper Filters In 8 Cup Batches
That Will Equate To 1.5 Million Trees Or 433,000 Cubic Yds Of Trash. 433,000 Cubic Yd Of Trash Is A 227 Ft Cube (Over A Cubic Acre) Or The Equivalent To A 257 Million Square Foot Building Filled With Trash, Or The Contents Of 128 Buildings The Size Of The Louvre.
