Here are, in our opinion, some of the best paper filters. Of course, they need to match-up with the systems. If you use these, we suggest you seek the unbleached versions, and make sure you compost the filter and grounds if possible. We are of course, huge fans of just getting a sustainable, re-usable coffee filter.
