Cutting Down Larger Coffee Filters

For health reasons we like to use natural brown filters in our 4 cup coffee maker. But often only bleached white filters are available at the store. So we buy the larger brown 8-12 cup size and cut them down.

First the filters are folded in halves or quarters, then with scissors about 1/2 inch is trimmed off the top. We cut 3 filters at a time and they work perfectly in our small basket. Of course the trimmings go into the compost pile along with the spent filters and grounds.

Why not get a reuseable mesh filter? Mine is over a year old and nothing is wrong with it so far. You just rinse it and put it back in the coffee maker.

I use the paper filters as my coffeepot is in my home office. A lot easier and quicker to dispose of the paper filters than have to go down the hall to the kitchen or bathroom.lol
