The LOCA Ceramic Filter is a new type of coffee filter that makes use of the porous properties of ceramic to filter coffee naturally through minuscule holes. This means you do not need to use a paper filterto make drip coffee.
This filter is washable and reusable. In addition, it also helps to change the taste of coffee by removing any harsh or odd flavors, allowing you to enjoy your coffee to the fullest.
The diagram on the right shows the results of a taste test comparing drip coffee using paper filters and the LOCA Ceramic Dripper. Although the umami of the coffee is roughly the same, the saltiness and bitterness are greatly reduced, and the sweetness has also improved.
Not shown in the graph, the transparency of the coffee
also becomes clearer. The micropores in LOCA Ceramic Drippers are responsible for this amazing effect.
Pour enough hot water to completely fill the filter to the top.
Do not use cold water.
To prevent clogging, we recommend you use very coarse granules. Refer to the picture for an idea of how coarse the granules should be.
(A coarse grind about the size of a pen nib is recommended.)
For 18g of granules, you need about 300ml of hot water. Place the granules into the filter, then starting from the middle, pour a small amount of water over the granules, allowing it to foam.
After the initial saturation, pour water 2-3 more times in small amounts, letting the coffee foam. From the center, pour in a circular motion outward. We recommend fresh coffee, as it allows the coffee to foam beautifully.
