ABACA Filter Paper
This paper is made from a mixture of ABACA (Manila fiber) and pulp obtained from a reforestation project. We can say that FSC certified ABACA filter paper is an eco-friendly product. The FSC certification is proof that the fibers used in the mixture are produced using environmentally friendly methods. Abaca has a high air and liquid permeability, hardness, and elasticity. Thanks to the Cafec air drying system, the two sides of the filters have a balanced crepe structure. These features make Abaca paper filters both durable and helpful in preventing clogging during brewing. On the other hand, it has a more sustainable raw material mixture compared to conventional papers. And of course, it is manufactured in Japan.

CAFEC Abaca & Traditional Filter Papers
CAFEC Abaca and Traditional filter papers have a “Two-Sided Crepe” structure. Cafec achieves this feature with its signature technology, the hot air drying (Air-Through Dry) system. Thanks to the balance of the heights of the crepe on both sides, a sufficient air layer is formed between the paper and the brewing equipment, allowing water flow at an ideal speed.
