Swiss Gold filters now available for sale- $38.
This is the KF-4, the same 23 Karat gold plated steel filter we use for brewing. The SwissGold filter I have at home has lasted two years of daily use without the gold coming off. Ive seen some go downhill quickly with dishwashers, but never gentle hand washing. The reason we use SwissGold is that the oils sheet right off without changing taste. Gold is the most non-reactive metal, it carries neither a positive or negative charge, and refuses to hold one. This means that oils do not cling to it, and unlike silicon, paper, and steel, gold does not taint the flavor, or give it a metalic of paper taste. Anyway, we Purchased 15 of these filters, and they are now in stock. Tyler is seen modeling one above.
The sheet of metal has been perforated with lazers and lets through more sediment than paper or cloth, yet is cleaner than a french press. We use them because they are reusable and use less water to clean than other filters we have seen. Pictures above are from our bar this morning.
