Able Disk Standard and Able Disk Fine Side by Side

Not surprisingly, Able Brewing is at it again. Able has built a reputation as a company committed to innovation, quality, and better brewing. In its relatively short history, Able Brewing has designed two highly praised brewing filters, the Kone and the Disk. The current Disk will remain unchanged and will be the standard option for Aeropress users. But Able listened to its customers and the consensus can be summed by one request: an even finer metal filter. Introducing the Disk - Fine!

Able Disk Overlap

Disk-Fine

This new design of the Disk answers the call for an even finer metal filter. The holes measure to half of the diameter of the standard Disk, therefore resulting in a greater density of precisely etched holes. To achieve this, however, the metal had to be thinner. This finer Disk is a bit more delicate; while the standard Disk has the potential to hold up for a lifetime, the finer Disk sacrifices some durability to achieve a greater degree of fineness, resulting in an even cleaner cup. While thin, the Fine is still made of high quality stainless steel and with careful cleaning and storage techniques, the user should ensure that they get lots of use from the finer Disk.

Is There Really a Difference?

Yes. Now, we do feel that the standard Disk yields a considerably clear cup, but of course there are others who want an even cleaner, less sediment-containing brew. We have experimented with this finer version, and the results were extraordinary! The cup tasted like it had been brewed using a cloth filter, with oils present but sediment unperceived. For those desiring a cleaner metal filter, the finer Disk is a success.

Now What?

    Fantastic. Looking forward to putting one of these to use...sounds like they'll be in the lucky hands in time for the World AeroPress Championship.

    Exciting! Cannot wait to use it.

    Lots of Aeropress love lately :)

    Can you also make a similar filters, that will work with different sizes og standar Bodum French Press?

    Yes please do this.

    I want to try! :-)

    Yes, just in time for the Championships!

    I think I'm too late but I want one :)

    You're correct that you are too late for the contest :( However, keep your eyes peeled on Able's twitter feed and this blog to see the reviews and find out if they will be put into production.

    Hi,

    I received it yesterday! Right now, I'm enjoying a delicious Coffee from a local Hamburgian roastery. At the first glimpse, the disc works really very good. Thank you very much for giving the disc away to us.

    Greetings from Germany!
