One of the most important things to decide when purchasing coffee filters is how many you need to buy. Coffee filters come in a variety of quantities. Smaller packages may include 80 to 100 coffee filters, while bulk count packages may have as many as 500 or 600 filters. Paper coffee filters don’t typically go bad, so you won’t need to worry about having to throw out coffee filters before you get a chance to use them. However, you might not want to buy so many coffee filters that you have difficulty finding space to store all of them.
Another question to ask is whether you prefer white or brown coffee filters. The difference between these two types of filters is how they’re processed. Brown coffee filters are less processed, as they are made from unbleached paper. White coffee filters are bleached either by using chlorine or through oxygen bleaching. The taste probably won’t be affected by using one color of filter over another, although there is a very small chance that using a brown filter will provide a slight papery taste (although this can be prevented by a quick rinse).
The last thing to think about is how strong you want your brew to be. Some say that reusable coffee filters are not strong enough to catch everything that is poured through them, which could result in a cup that is more oily (and that potentially has a ground or two that sink through). This may also result in a stronger coffee flavor, which may be preferable to some, but could be a drawback for others. The benefit to using reusable filters is obviously less waste, and most reusable filters are easy to clean with running water or by placing in the dishwasher.

A: You’ll want to make sure the coffee filters you purchase are compatible with the coffee maker that you own (or that you’re getting ready to buy). Coffee filters are sold in numerical sizes, with #2 and #4 coffee filters being two of the most common sizes that you’ll see. As a general rule, #2 coffee filters are best in two to six-cup electric coffee makers or one to two-cup non-electric coffee makers. #4 coffee filters will be better in electric machines that brew eight to twelve cups, or non-electric brewers that brew eight to ten cups. Still, other filters may be better options in different types of coffee makers, such as pour-over coffee makers. We’ll make sure to point out the options that are best suited for this type of use as we go.
A: Coffee filters vary between disposable and non-disposable options. Usually, disposable filters are made with paper, while reusable filters can be made from cloth, plastic, or mesh. The filters are designed to be thin enough to allow for liquid to pass through while being thick enough to keep out grounds. Some coffee filters are made using only recycled material and are specially designed to be biodegradable or eco-friendly.
