Introducing (Properly) the K250 for AeroPress

One of the joys and challenges of working with a small business is that everything needs doing at once. One of those things that has needed doing for a long time has been proper introductory videos to each of our products. Without further ado, here is the first of these, a brief introduction to our K250 filter for AeroPress.

Yes, this film shows an inverted brew method. The K250 filter actually works fine with both inverted and traditional brew methods, but we decided to show the inverted because it's our favorite! :)

P.S. Thanks to Velton again for the Colombia Camilio Torres used in the making of this film. Thanks to our AeroPress brew session, we caught a lot of the coffee's sweet complexity that we weren't getting any other way.

...and at rest


  1. How does it compare to the Coava disk?

  2. Good question! The core difference is in the choice of filtration medium. The Coava (Able) DISK is a steel plate laser cut with holes approximately 300 microns wide (source: The K250 for AeroPress is a flexible stainless steel mesh with holes 61 microns in size.

    This difference no doubt affects brewing parameters as well, but I don't think I could give a fair comparison of the two products, so I'll leave that to others!

    Hope this helps.
