The new DISK-Fine by Able Brewing is the slimmer sister of the celebrated DISK stainless steel filter, designed for use with the Aerobie AeroPress®. Like the standard DISK, the DISK-Fine is a reusable alternative to paper filters, but features even smaller holes for an even cleaner cup.

From our DISK Fine recipe contest, here is Jesse Gordon's winning recipe:

  1. Inverted
  2. 22g coffee
  3. Medium-fine grind (Finer grind than a pour-over)
  4. 200mL water
  5. Pour 100mL of the water
  6. Stir 3-4 times
  7. Pour remaining 100mL
  8. Steep for 1:00
  9. Quickly flip and press for 15 seconds, stopping when you hear the “hiss”
  10. Add 3-4 ounces of water post-brew

Able Brewing is the creation of some upcoming coffee professionals from Portland, Oregon who are seeking to simplify and improve coffee brewing devices. Their creations aspire for increased sustainability through creating reusable products and clean tasting cups of coffee. To date, the company has created two stainless steel filters. The first filter is the Able Disk, a stainless steel filter produced for the Aeropress. The second is the Able Kone, a stainless filter for Chemex pour over brewers. These stainless coffee filters not only cut down on paper waste, but also remove the paper taste from the brewing equation, producing a clean tasting, full-bodied cup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Equipment at a Great Price This is a great fine metal filter for the AeroPress. It's packed to prevent bending and includes alternative brewing instructions on how to most effectively use it to make the best cup of coffee. I have been using it as a traditional AeroPress filter with espresso grind and it works just fine using that method as well. The only thing to note is that a fine filter is much different than a paper filter and will let through some coffee sediment. This is not a big issues in any way, but if you have been using paper filter and switch to this one it is something to take note of before you gulp down that last bit in the bottom of the cup the first time you use the filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Able DISK filter for Aeromaster Able and Aeromaster are to be commended !I started using the Able filter soon after it arrived. It does not disappoint. It complements the Aeromaster press beautifully. It does improve the process of coffee licquor extraction quite a bit when compared to the paper filter provided with the press. Aeromaster has made a difference in the way we prepare coffee and for this, they are to be commended. Serge Mosovich MD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than paper Yes, its better than paper. Why, you might ask! Your initial thoughts might be that in the long run it will save your money, save you some time waiting on shipping or things like that. But my main reason for it being better than paper is that it allows some more oils through the filter and has finally got my cup of coffee too that euphoria state that we all look for. Very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent accessory to the Aero Press Great little product, great service, quick delivery. The coffee out of my AeroPress tastes even better with the screen rather than paper filters. I bought the fine screen, and it flows well, is a milisecond quicker than a paper filter, and is all around better. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more disposables! Works great. Produces a fine cup. I'm so glad to be free of the need to buy and re-buy paper filters. This product should pay for itself quickly as paper filters in my local shop cost $5 a pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well! Have only used it once, so I can't comment on the long term, but it worked great, and I preferred the cup to what I got from the regular DISK, which is excellent, too.
