Every morning the Able founders would wake up and stumble into the kitchen to make our morning coffee. There is nothing like the smell of fresh grounds and brewed coffee. Their method of choice was manual drip using the Chemex Coffee Maker, in which making your coffee by hand feels very rewarding and seems to bring an intimate connection to the cup. However, one morning they ran out of paper filters - the hunt for a reusable filter ensued.
Unable to find a filter that fit perfectly in their coffee maker as the shape was not a true cone, the available options also seemed to be of cheap build and resulted in a cup that didn’t taste as good as they thought it could. As a result, the Able founders had it in themselves to make a filter that produced the best coffee possible, made with a high-quality construction, and was sustainable. Thus the KONE coffee filter was born. It is a reusable filter made from high quality stainless steel and specifically designed to fit the Chemex Coffee Maker.
