Frequently asked questions
Top 5 questions everyone wants to know
How long does Ebb last?
On average, an Ebb filter 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 should Ebb be stored between uses?
For consistently high quality brews, we recommend storing Ebb in water and refrigerating between uses.
After clean up, place filter in water-tight container–like a small jar. Fill container with water so that filter is mostly submerged. Place container in fridge and you're done!
Hanging your filter to dry between uses is also an option.
How does it compare to paper?
It works just like a paper filter. Except that you won't get that paper taste and it doesn't get thrown away each use.
Like all things non-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.
