Each has its own advantages! The purpose of non-wet filter paper is to prevent the coffee powder from entering the extraction in advance, which leads to the uneven extraction. Like most Japanese cooking will not have the behavior of wet filter paper (because they use flannel), because they need to let the filter paper absorb coffee liquid, and then judge whether the extraction is uniform by its color distribution and whether it can move on to the next stage of extraction!

The advantage of wet filter paper is that it can wash away the odor attached to the filter paper, like some friends will expose the filter paper to the air, so that some small dust will stick to it! So it will be moist and fit to wash away these fine dust by the way.

But for those filter cups with a large number of diversion bones (such as V60), the fit of the filter paper is still more important! Qianjie has done such an experiment before, using different degrees of V60 filter cup to brew coffee, what is the difference. The results showed that the flow rate of the fully fitted filter cup was faster than that of the other three groups.

(direct link to the experiment: is it really that important for filter paper to fit your opponent's coffee? ) and then in terms of flavor, except for the coffee with the filter paper, the other three groups have a negative taste because they do not fit! Therefore, for the filter cup with diversion bone, the degree of fit is still more important! Because it does have a certain effect on the taste, and when the filter paper does not fit, the guide bone of the filter cup will lose its effect.

But it doesn't matter! It's on the front street, no accident! Today to share a set of methods that can make the filter paper fit rate as high as 95%, easily solve all the problems of filter paper fitting, tapered filter cup universal! First! Let's follow the standard procedure and fold the filter paper first.

And then there's the big show! Put the folded filter paper into the filter cup, then gently press the fold line and opposite side of the filter paper from above with your index finger and thumb!

Inject a large amount of water and pour it directly to the 3x2 of the filter cup! Hand pressure can ensure that the filter paper will not go awry during water injection, and the water pressure can force the filter paper to be attached to the filter cup!

Dangdang! The filter paper is completely fitted in this way, simple and practical! The only disadvantage is that it consumes a lot of water, but it can fit the filter paper to the maximum extent. Take out the hand flush suit and try it.
