Great filter. The mesh is so fine it leaves absolutely no silt at the bottom using my usual medium/ coarse grind.
I wasn't used to this style, which is pretty much like the paper filters that have a deep cone going all the way down. Not sure how this design affects overall taste vs. the metal filters with the small inverted cone facing up in the center for some designs, but this one works great!
Super easy to clean the inside of the filter, while the outer portion requires a little more diligent cleaning. There is an included brush for cleaning the tight areas between the cone and the flat base. The base does not separate and the entire filter is one piece. There're 4 small tack welds holding the two main parts together and I do have concerns that one day it may break or separate, as I’ve had others do in the past after repeated use and or dropping into the sink, so I’ll have to be more careful with this one.
Very nicely done filter that looks like stainless steel artwork with the etched design screen that appears to control flow direction out of the screen.

I was pleasantly surprised with this permanent coffee filter and am happy with it.
In the past, when I have tried permanent coffee filters, I have ended up with grounds in the bottom of my mug, which I don't like. Because of this, my intent had been to use a paper filter also, just to eliminate any fine grounds from getting into the cup. Using a standard #4 paper filter turned out to be a bit awkward compared to using a filter holder designed for paper filters, as they tend to be flat at the bottom rather than cone shaped all the way to the bottom as this is. I was able to use the paper filter, it just was a bit awkward.
BUT, much to my pleasant surprise, using the same grind as I use with my pour-over paper filters, but without a paper filter - just this - there was just the barest hint of very fine grounds at the very bottom of my mug. So small and so little, that it wasn't an issue. I guess that is due to the two layer construction that uses a very fine inside mesh, and then a more robust exterior for strength and protection.
I was also pleased with the taste of my coffee - again, using the same amount of coffee I use with a paper filter - I found the brew to be robust and flavorful. Actually, a little better even than with the paper filter.
I think a key to using this filter is to ensure that you allow the grounds to bloom by just barely wetting them, and then giving them 30 seconds or so to rest before starting the pour over. The other key is to be patient with the pour over, adding just enough water at a time to keep the grounds covered.
As with any permanent filter, the one down side compared to one that uses paper filters is the clean-up. I don't like putting coffee grounds down our sink drain, so getting the grounds out of the filter and into the trash takes much more effort than just lifting a paper filter out of the holder and tossing it (and the grounds within) into the trash.
The included brush does make the task a bit easier, though I did still end up with some grounds going down the drain.
The one other minor issue is that the lack of a handle makes it a little awkward to remove the filter from the top of the cup after the brew is complete. It's not a big deal, as the rubber around the top edge protects the fingers from getting burned but it might be an issue for someone with small hands.
