Yes, there are a few types of coffee filters.

I would recommend using paper filters. They are widely available, easy to use and are comparatively inexpensive. The best part of a paper filter, is that they are disposable.

If you would rather not use a paper filter, another popular option would be cloth filters. If cared for properly, these filters can last anywhere from 3-6 months.

Other varieties include metal, plastic and glass filters.

Bloomfield coffee maker overflows, even with plain filter


The outlet of the cone filter holder is clogged. Normally its just a hole you can clean out but some units have a valve that is pushed up/open by your coffee pot. That valve may be clogged or if you changed the coffee pot it may not be opening due to the different pot. Clean valve or just remove it so the coffee will run into coffee pot.

Does freeze dried coffee come in different types?


Sure, just like regular coffee, you can find both caffeinated and decaffeinated freeze dried coffee. Also, freeze dried coffee comes in different flavors just like regular coffee.

Where can i buy charcoil filter for kitchen aid coffee pot 14 cup pot


Hello Ikring,

The filter that you are refering to is the ion filter it can be order from many different online stores. I have found one that the part number is KCM50WF sell the item for $12.99 for 2 and a $1.99 shipping. I asume that you already know how to replace the filter. You might also check your local hardware store as many of them also stock these types of filters. This is the link to the store and web page the item is on http://www.filtersfast.com/KitchenAid-KCM50WF-Coffee-Filter.asp


Thank you for choosing FIxya and please do not hesitate to ask more questions.

My coffee filter for my Keurig, seems to overflow. Making coffee is fine with the pods, but not the filter with which you can use your own coffee... I have tried different types of grinds (ex. fine,...


I have had this same problem when all of some of the coffee is ground too fine. It needs to be the correct particle size and if it is too fine, it will clog the screen and either overflow or not flow at all. Look at the ground coffee you use and check to see if it is uniform size or there are a lot of very fine grounds mixed with the coarser sizing. Try asking a coffee shop to grind you some coffee specifically for your Keurig cassettes. Most pre-grounds drip coffees are too coarse and many grinders in the stores where you grind your own whole beans do not produce a uniform size. I have an OEM Keurig cassettee and two generic cassettes and the screens have different pore sizes, with the Keurig being finer.

We are having a problem with our bun coffee maker. we have used several different coffee's to rule out that the problem is not the coffee. However it doesnt seem like the problem could be the coffee maker...


What brand of filter ae you using?

Some filters will filter too much and others not enough.

with 1.5 to 2 Oz of coffee in the filter, it should take 4 to 5 minutes to complete a brew of one 64Oz decanter.

Weak coffee and pale crema.


If you get weak coffee from espresso machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.


Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Coffee tastes like metal


THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert

Leaky Tassemo coffee maker


i think it's supposed to do that. the cup at the base is supposed to be catching all the water that the tassimo is 'leaking'. it should be dumped after every cup of tea/coffee. if you have taller cups, and do not use the cup base that comes with the machine in order to fit the taller cups under where the tea/coffee comes out, then you are right. it seems like it's 'leaking' because it is. there should be enough room in the base for one cup, but then it can also be removed so as to dump the excess water out after the cup is made. hope this helps!
