MILAN – Let’s discover a innovative pour-over system that comes from Japan: LOCA Coffee Ceramic Filter is built with a special ceramic system composed of countless micro-pores through which coffee or other beverages are filtered. The final result? According to the taste analysis that was conducted by the Intelligent Sensor Technology Corporation, Taste Analysis TS-50002, Saga Industrial Technical Center, bitterness is largely removed, and any roughness is smoothed out quite nicely.

LOCA Coffee Ceramic Filter first produced and sold in 1986 by Kubota Ceramics of Saga City, Kyushu, in the famed Arita region known worldwide by its 400+ year history of fine porcelain and ceramics production, the filter was never exported to the west outside of the Japanese archipelago until late 2016, when it debuted to overwhelming interest at CoffeeFest in Anaheim, by Sunbridge Innovative Products Ltd., the exclusive importer of Kubota Ceramic products to the US and Canada.

Still relatively unknown today in North America, the Ceramic Filter is a game-changer set to revolutionize the world of pour-over coffee extraction. It highlights the fruit of the coffee bean, can be eco-friendly and wasteless, and presents potential health benefits to the user in that sugar consumption may be reduced or eliminated all together due to the filter’s characteristics of removing the bitterness traditionally associated with paper or cloth filters.

Loca Coffee Ceramic Filter is available in different shapes

The regular Round Type for 1 servings and for 2-3 servings and the Regular V Type, for 2-3 servings. What about the cleaning? It takes only water, after each use, until the fluid becomes clear: no detergents, if you don’t want to bind to the pores and spoiling the next flavor. But of course, also LOCA Coffee Ceramic Filter nees some periodic maintenance: since the pores of the filter are extremely fine, clogging occurs after repeated
use. If the flow rate becomes lower, clogging is beginning to occur, through firing (placing the filter face up on a steel net and firing for about 10 minutes until smoke does not comes out. Firing the whole surface by turning it using tongs.) and boiling (put baking soda (2 spoons) in a boiling pot and boil the filter for 10-20 min. Or fill a microwave-safe bowl with enough water, put baking soda (2 spoons) in a boiling pot, and heat in the microwave (500W/5 min, 700W/3 min).

And at what price comes this revolutionary filter? If you go on the shop online, you can see

From 6.215 yen (taxes 565 yen) to 7.645 yen (taxes 695 yen), that it’s from 47,5€ to 58,48€.
