I don't use the paper ones either. The metal ones are nice, just dump the grounds out to recycle in the garden.

I have metal filters in both the v shape and the basket shape (RV and House coffee makers). Walmart even carries them now.

I tried one of the metal filters and found too much gunk in the cup. Went back to the old tried and true paper filters.

Agreed the metal filters allow to much gunk to filter through, look at the oil slick on top of your coffee.

prefer the brown filters

I bought a gold filter for my Melitta drip pot. To keep sludge out, you need to grind your beans a little coarser.

I am going to get some filters, though, just to use for all the things on that list.

Depchief, you are supposed to skim tht oily stuff off the top and put it in your fuel tank.

I don't have any gunk or "oil slick". I don't get grounds in my coffe either. Perhaps it's the type of coffee maker you have or you may need to change out your charcoal filter. I rinse the gold metal filter out after each brew, to make sure it's clean each time.

But everyone has their personal preference.

Kind of off the original topic, but I read that paper filters actually make coffee a healthy drink by absorbing some chemical that metal filters don't. In moderation, of course.

What do they treat the brown ones with?
