Frequently asked questions

Top 5 questions everyone wants to know



How long does Ebb last?

If stored in water, ebb lasts 90-120 uses. That's 3 to 4 months for daily drinkers.


How do you clean it?

At the end of each use, pull filter from dripper and let cool. Shake grounds into compost or trash and rinse well. Do not use soap of any kind.  


How does storage work?

For consistently high quality brews, we recommend storing Ebb in water and refrigerating between uses.

After clean up, place filter in water-tight container. Fill container with water so that filter is submerged. Place container in fridge and you're done! It may seem strange, but trust us – it isn't!

Hanging your filter to dry between uses is another option.


How does it compare to paper?

It works just like a paper filter does. Except that you won't get that paper taste and it doesn't get thrown away after each use. 

Like all things not-single-use, Ebb filters change with time. They will pour more quickly when they are new, hit a sweet spot at middle-age, and begin to pour more slowly toward the end of their lifecycle. At that point, compost and replace.
