filters
        The big question is, paper or metal filters? Aroma prefers metal, and here's a short comparison.

Paper: If you can't stand even a bit of sediment at the bottom of your cup, you'll want to use paper. In recent years consumers have grown wary of them because of concern about dioxins that form during paper bleaching and which are thought to be potent carcinogens. Thus arose the use of unbleached filters, which in turn raised health concerns about resins and other impurities that remain in unprocessed paper. Now there are "oxygen-bleached" filters that remove the risks of traditional bleached and completely unbleached filters. Paper filters do offer the quickest cleanup: just dump the filter with the grounds after brewing.

Metal: Gold filters come in sizes to fit most brewers, and on some coffee machines they come standard (see our Gift and Accessories section). They must be washed after every use. hey can go into the dishwasher, but after a couple of years, the plating will begin to wear away and you'll have to buy a new one. Aroma believes a gold filter improves the taste of your coffee, over time will save money spent on paper filters, and in a small way, helps the cause of environmental conservation.
