The Able DISK is a reusable stainless steel filter designed to be used with the Aeropress instead of the paper filters it comes with. It fits into the Aeropress filter cap exactly the same way the paper filters do and can be rinsed off and used indefinitely.
Advantages vs. paper
Using a stainless steel filter instead of paper offers a few advantages. Firstly, you eliminate waste and also never run the risk of running out. Some people like to travel with a stainless steel filter because of this advantage.
Secondly, the stainless steel filter is that unlike paper, it does not filter out all of the oils of the coffee, leaving a more full-bodied cup. As such, this filter system offers a nice alternative for those who want an even greater variety of coffees out their Aeropress.
Features smaller holes, reducing the amount of fines that come through. The resulting coffee should be cleaner and less full bodied, more simpler to what you would get with a paper filter.
