    Weber Workshops teamed up with Cafec in Japan, the leading producer of high-end coffee paper filters, to bring the first-of-its-kind, exclusive, paper filter made specifically for espresso!

    Why a paper filter?
    Paper filters under the coffee puck reduce clogging of the portafilter/unifilter basket holes, thereby facilitating a more even extraction. It also prevents higher flow right at the basket holes, allowing more even water flow throughout the puck, especially in the bottom section. This enables the use of a finer grind, which increases extraction yield while keeping shot times the same. It does introduce an extra step, but the effort is rewarded with a perceptibly improved shot of espresso.

    About the paper
    In the paper creation process, the roller and the dryer drum operate at different speeds, yielding two different textures on either side of the paper. The smooth size goes against the coffee, and the rough side (the "crepe") faces down for smooth liquid exit to the pores of the portafilter. It's engineered to evolve your espresso game and improve your day-to-day experience!

    • Made in Japan with premium coffee filter paper produced by the wet crepe method.
    • Precision cut to fit the bottom of your portafilter perfectly.
    • 55mm (for standard 58mm and VST baskets) sizes.
    • 0.15mm thickness
    • 100 filters per pack
  • Place an EPF filter, rough side down, in the portafilter basket prior to adding ground coffee and tamping.

You Can Taste the Difference

It brings more nuances and structure to the flavors

Fits well for my Pullman basket

Arash K. (Ontario, Canada)
Grind finer

These are good quality paper filters. They fit my VST basket perfectly. They are a little bit of a pain to use because they have to be wet to stick to the portafilter and then you have to dry the side of the portafilter. When using WDT you have to be careful not to rip the paper filter with the needles. I find that I have to grind 2 full sizes finer with my Niche grinder to keep everything else the same when pulling a shot. The result is different. I don't think it's necessarily better or worse but different. The espresso tastes very clean though and there will be no coffee particles in your cup. Definitely worth trying to see if it's something you want to add to your workflow or not.

Wasn’t sure what to expect

Overall pretty happy with the product. Good quality and fits my VST baskets. I didn’t notice anything drastic. When you use it with one on top it keeps the puck really compact. I mostly drink light roasts so I’m used to seeing shots with little crema.

Oliver R. (British Columbia, Canada)
Perfect fit

Too lazy to cut down filters for the moment, these fit perfect for bottom of IMS 58mm baskets (on a DE1).
Just have to remember to be more careful with WDT and not catching the paper….

Dylan (Ontario, Canada)
Weber helps you experiment

I really appreciate Weber catering to people who want to explore new techniques. I had seen coffee personalities using paper filters on the bottom of their portafilters to increase extraction yield. These papers fit well, and have made my shots slightly more consistent.

Jose (British Columbia, Canada)
The do the work

I place mine at the bottom of the portafilter, before grinding the beans on. So far it makes for a clean, channeling free extraction. Will continue to purchase

Z.A. (Alberta, Canada)

Seems to really help with distribution. I have been using these on top of my puck.
