Subject: Coffee Filters
Broke down and purchased a TechniVorm Coffee Maker. There IS a major
difference. Question: It came with No10 paper filters. I am used to
using a metal (gold?) filter. Is there any difference in the coffee
through either?

Thanks,
Ted

Hi Ted, yes the paper will filter out all of the TDS & let most of the
coffee oils through. the Swissgold KF10 is more akin to a French press
(much richer) that'll let all of the TDS Total Dissolved Solids through
& all of the coffee oils in a nutshell.
Craig.

So, what is the advantage to the TDS being in the coffee? Or is that
a disadvantage?

Then, if one were to make the same amount of coffee with a paper
filter and switch to a gold filter would you use the same amount
ofground coffee, would you grind it coarser, or what to get the
desired taste?

There's also a difference between the SwissGold and the Braun / Krups
/ et al. gold screen. We prefer the gold screen to the SwissGold in
our Presto Scandi. YMMV may vary in a Techivorm.

(yes, we have both filter types and both are new)
