Was really excited for the filter. After I opened the box, noticed two stains inside the phin. They wouldn't come off as I wiped the stains with paper towel and water. What did keep coming off was some sort of paint residual around the bottom rim after washing it two times. Reached out to customer service, they promptly sent a replacement. Unfortunately I ran into the same issue with the replacement, though with less residual. I really wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt and thought I just needed to wash it a couple of more times. After one wash, there are now multiple discolorations (rust?) in the lid that pushes the coffee grinds down. I do not feel comfortable using the filter as this point.
Delicious coffee. I'm planning on buying more for gifts.
Original 4 oz Phin Filter
i gifted the original phin filter to both of my siblings and they loved it! easy to have it shipped directly to each of them, with reasonable time from order to delivery.
this is a great gift for a coffee lover, inviting them to explore a new brewing method and regional coffee tradition. especially after nearly a year of quarantine/WFH, they said this has been a little something new to look forward to daily, especially with such breezy prep and clean-up.
super easy to use. love the fact that i dont have to tamp the grinds. would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a simple phin for their coffee!
