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

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.

Able disk

Works well, I love the fuller bodied coffee since fewer oils get caught than compared with a paper filter

Metal vs Paper filters for Aeropress

I like em both. The fine metal filter makes an amazing cup of coffee. Minor adjustments in temperature, grind and coffee quantity from paper to metal. This metal filter allows more flavor in each cup. I started with paper and may never go back. The fine filter is sturdy, and is rinse to clean. Love it.

Great Filter!

I purchased this filter about a week ago because I've grown tired of throwing away paper filters. Not only does this filter reduce waste, I've noticed it brews a better cup of coffee because it seems to filter out smaller particles. It's easy to clean and use. Well worth the $12!

I'll never go back to paper.

I've had a aeropress for some time and have been extremely happy with it, other than the paper filters that sometimes get bent or not stay in place. Then I remembered that a friend had a steel mesh filter, so went searching for it. This works great! I purchased the fine/medium filter because I was a little worried that it may not strain out the small particles (like some french presses), but I can hardly notice the difference between the paper and steel filters. In fact, I may like the steel one better because it lets more of the oils pass through. After your're done, just rinse and you're ready to go again. I'll never go back to paper.

As Good as Paper Filters

I'm what you might call a light coffee drinker. For only one cup a day, the AeroPress is perfect for my needs. But I quickly realized that even with using only one a day, I could run through a pack of paper filters fairly often. Those aren't expensive, certainly, but it is still a small hassle to order them, and the cost would add up. When I first heard about the Able DISK, I was intrigued, but I was leery of the amount of coffee fines that would get through. It wasn't long before Able released the DISK-Fine which addressed my issues. I was still hesitant, but I got one anyway because I was just about to run out of paper filters again. I am blown away by how clean a cup of coffee this lets me brew. It tastes and feels like I had used a paper filter, and I didn't change the way I used the AeroPress at all. Sometimes there are fines left at the bottom of my cup, but it's a small amount so it doesn't affect my enjoyment of the drink. The downside to a metal filter is that it takes a little bit more care and effort to clean it than just popping it into the trash with the grounds like you would with a paper filter. I believe that's a fair tradeoff, though.

Even better than expected

As others have indicated, this really brings out the best of the Aeropress, producing a deeper, richer, more complex cup of coffee. Able's description might lead one to believe that, since it's thinner, it's fragile and easily subject to damage. Not so, in my experience; you'd have to be pretty ham-fisted to damage this thing, so that needn't be a concern. A tip I haven't seen mentioned: If, at the end of the plunge you hold the body down against your cup and pull UP on the plunger - maybe an inch or so - you'll effectively remove almost all of the grounds from the disk - further expediting an already quick cleanup process. Now, order one!

Better than paper?

After reviewing this filter I decided to try it out and thankfully the positive reviews like this one were true. Most reviews said that paper filtered out more/all grounds but also something else. One comment indicated it was more espresso like and I concur but note an Aeropress is not an espresso machine. Try it!. Of course everyone has their own opinion but I like this filter. It is very thin and will require care not to bend when handling but that seems a small price to pay.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Good decision

It is a good decision to by this disk - it works exactly as described and my coffee now has a new, better, taste/flavor that it didn't have before when I used paper filters.

Great Product

Like the fact that it is reusable and it gives you another option of tweaking the flavor of your coffee using it alone or even with a paper filter along with it.

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.

It's alright...

I have used this a few times and it seems to not be fine enough of a screen... I get a pretty decent amount of grounds in my coffee... Am I doing something wrong? The only good thing I've experienced is not wasting paper filters...
