While disposable coffee filters are relatively inexpensive you can save some money over the long run buy investing a in a reusable gold coffee filter.
In my price comparison you can get the cheapest coffee filters for right around 1-3¢ each at stores such as Walmart & Kmart. And that is not a huge investment. Of course there are more expensive types of coffee filters too. But for right around $4.00 at those same stores you can purchase a gold reusable coffee filter which will last for years and years (I am going on year 7 on the one I currently use). So over the course of time you do end up saving money.
The bonus however, is that your coffee will taste much better. Why is that? Because the oils in the coffee are what carry the flavor and many of those oils are absorbed by the paper coffee filters and you don’t get the full flavor of your coffee in your cup. However, with a gold reusable coffee filter all of the flavorful coffee oils are passed into the pot and are not absorbed. I swear I can taste the difference when coffee is made in a paper filter vs. a gold filter.
Like I mentioned above you can purchase the gold reusable coffee filters at most stores such as Walmart, Kmart, Target and even your local grocery stores. They are pretty easy to find.
