Filter

I was surprised to see this wasn't already discussed. Aware that the gold standard is a french press, but the one I have is for single cups. When I'm making a large batch for my thermos I used a percolator, without a filter because I've heard Dave talking about how filters can absorb some of the beneficial oils in the coffee.


 


What's every ones thoughts on this? Is it a big enough of a difference that I should bite the bullet (ha) and purchase a larger french press?

    there's been a few threads discussing filters. You're not looking hard enough.


     


    French press is one of the worst! I use a Gold filter during the week and a single cup paper filter at weekends to get the benefits of both and the paper takes longer when I have more time at the weekends.

    French press is one of my favorite brand. The sweetner in the french press feels great to our lips. Stick with the french press. It makes a better cup of coffee for you since you already are use to it (sludge).

    Ah alright. Need to get into the habit of using Google site:forum.bulletproofexec.com (or whatever site) found threads on it then.


    Use a metal filter with the percolator. I'll move the rest of my thoughts to the thread you linked to no reason to fragment the discussion.

  • French press is the best method for retaining the diturpene oils (cafestol & kahweol), which you would want to do for inflammation but the tradeoff being that the diturpene oils raise your LDL.  If you don't want the oils, use a Hario method with a paper filter.  Hario method with a gold filter is a compromise between the two spectrums.
