I think this looks really cool.
I definitely am a fan of the paper filters instead of metal because the metal lets a bit more of the particulates through. If I'm in the mood for a full body cup I just use my French Press which uses a similar filter.
I'd be interested to know if anyone has this and has compared to paper filter on a hario v60 or something similar?

If you like the aesthetics you could use a v60 filter in this, the brew column looks similar.

I have a metal filter for my pour over and I put a paper one inside of it. Makes a really strong cup and much easier to clean up.

I feel silly that this never occurred to me. I'll take a second look at this, thanks for pointing out my obvious oversight=]

I stopped using paper a long time ago...mainly because I kept forgetting to buy filters. Have not used the Press for a long time because the kids kept breaking them and I hated cleaning them. It's been stovetop for a long time and the AdHoc for the better part of a year. I do not mind chewy coffee and it's compact and easy to clean.

FWIW, folks with diabetes or high cholesterol will want to be using paper filters! Paper filters capture substances like diterpenes that might not be desirable, depending on who is drinking the coffee. For example, cafestol, which has been shown to increase cholesterol synthesis in the liver. Studies have shown that regular consumption of boiled coffee (Turkish) and French press, neither of which use paper filters, both increase serum cholesterol. Further, filtered coffee has been positively demonstrated to contain only negligible amounts of diterpenes and does not have the same effect on cholesterol in the blood.
