For a balanced and rich coffee

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

The two-sided crepe with a good balanced height provides a large surface area for rapid water flow, which allows the coffee to flow smoothly and steadily to the server. The suggested brewing temperature is 90°C, at which the coffee will be full of balanced and rich flavour.

The  paper filter helps perfectly extract the flavour of medium 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 balanced and rich 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.

    Worth searching for

    I'm glad I tried out some new filters and these really do it all for me, my pour over game was immediately stepped up.

    Best filterpapers so far

    I'm that guy who starts telling strangers at a party that they should really pivot to these papers when you use an origami brewer, so yeah, get in asap. I never drink anything that could be described as 'medium dark roast', but for some reason, light roasts come out better with these filters. I use britta filtered Amsterdam water, so your mileage may vary. Also, service is quick and with a personal touch at Kohiraifu. What more can a brewhead want? <3

    It's Paper-time!

    Hands down the best paper to throw into your origami. (or any other cone brewer #teamcone) Don't let the words 'medium dark roast' fool you, works great with light roasts. Also great service and wonderful store all round <3

    These are my go to filters using the V60 or the Cafec flower dripper.
