Getting Started With Ebb
New to reusable cloth filters? We've got you.
Ebb reusable coffee filters should last for about 90-120 uses, which is 3-4 months for daily use, and about a year for weekend coffee drinkers. Proper cleaning and storage of your Ebb filter will help it last longer and deliver a delicious taste.
Thankfully, cloth filters are easy to clean. At the end of each use, pull the filter from the dripper once it's cool enough to touch and shake the grounds into your compost bin. Then, rinse your filter in warm water, without soap. After you clean it, place your wet filter somewhere sunny or with good air flow to dry.
Here are our tips for keeping your Ebb reusable filter fresh and clean:
Grind your coffee to the coarseness of kosher salt. Grinding it too finely will clog the fabric.
Rinse your filter within 30 minutes after brewing to prevent unwanted growth.
Clean thoroughly after each use to prevent coffee solids from accumulating over time.
Keep in mind that your Ebb filter will naturally change with time. It will pour more quickly when it's new, hit a sweet spot around middle-age, and start to drip more slowly toward the end of its lifecycle. Once your filter has reached this point, it’s time to compost and replace.
