The greatest treasure for the Filipinos
Abaca, also known as Manila hemp, is a non-wood and environmentally friendly material made for the afforestation projects. It is eco-friendly because it has a short planting time and can be planted in large quantities without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Abaca replaces the use of wood and reduces forest consumption and environmental burden.
For Filipinos, Abaca means hope. Many families and lives were saved by the working opportunities provided by the Abaca project. Look at how this woman's life was changed by Abaca:

great filters! better and faster flow than harios
CAFEC filters produces the smoothest, sediment-free coffee - and allows water to get through the dripper much faster than conventional filter paper. Thank you very much Kohiraifu Team for your great service !
Was having trouble with slow drawdowns with the new Hario filter papers from new Japanese factory and I heard these CAFEC ones were the original quality from the original factory before they changed manufacturer. Not drawing down as fast as I was expecting but getting a lot more consistency out of my cups so far.
Fitlers are great!!! As recommended from Kohiraifu crew! <3
I love this paper, it has a quicker flow compared to hario in my experience and allows me to grind a bit finer for some more acidity which I like. Being a bit more eco friendly is also nice and good for your karma ;) The people behind the webshop are great, you get a quick reply and their instragram is great if you like coffee content.
