Bonmac #4 Filters


These are far and away our favorite filters for use in the Bonmac pour-over – and they are tree-free! The Cannabinus or Kenaf, from which the material is derived, is a miraculous bush that is fast-growing, non-soil-depleting, and has edible and nutritious fruits and seeds. The fibers are thicker and stronger than paper fibers, which results in a filter that is resistant to leaking small particles into your coffee. Need some additional convincing? Kenaf produces twice the amount of paper per acre compared with timber; it takes 30 percent less energy to produce, compared with wood-pulp derived paper; and is lightly bleached with hydrogen peroxide, as opposed to oxygen or chlorine-derived bleaches common in the paper industry. All that and a great cup of coffee.
