For a clean and aromatic coffee

This paper filter is tailor-made for light roasted specialty coffee beans.

The inner surface is smooth without crepe, and the surface area to which the coffee powder adheres is reduced. Fruity fragrance can be extracted with the unique flow rate created by the inner smooth surface, and the crepe outer surface allows the coffee to flow smoothly through the filter paper to the server. The high density of the filter paper also removes impurities and prevents grounds getting through, ensuring a clean and aromatic coffee.

The paper filter helps perfectly extract the flavour of light roasted coffee beans. With the help of the density, thickness, and wrinkle of the filter paper, a unique flavour is extracted, and a cup of bright and aromatic coffee is ready to be tasted.

It is made from artificially planted forest areas. Made by 100% natural wood pulp raw material, without adding any fluorescent substance.

Important Updates:

Since 2024, we have undertaken a gradual process of repackaging the CAFEC Roasting Level Paper Filter to establish more precise distinctions. This renaming strategy now hinges on the objective physical characteristic of thickness (TH), rather than prescribing usage with specific preferred coffee roasting levels. It's important to acknowledge that terminology variances between Japan and the European market may exist. Importantly, these modifications do not impact any characteristics or performance of the paper filter itself.

We maintain the belief that different filters can effectively complement various roasting levels of coffee beans, facilitating the discovery of the optimal paper filter for each unique coffee bean type.

    Good paper

    Fan of this paper, it feels like it just has a bit nicer flow that the v60 paper I used to use.

    Extremely slow

    It takes forever for the water to go through... Stick with v60 filters

    Cafec papers

    Cafec filters give a very nice clean cup when using them with an Origami dripper. No discernible aftertaste.

    Great filters for lighter roasts

    My daily driver. I'm not entirely sure how they do it, but they completely banish bitter, over-extracted flavours, even if you really try to over-extract!
