How to Clean Gold Mesh Coffee Filters

A mesh coffee filter is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional paper versions. Mesh coffee filters, which are made of stainless steel, are durable and reusable. Some stainless steel filters are plated with gold-tone metal, or even 23-karat gold. Mesh coffee filters may brew a more flavourful pot of coffee by allowing more of the beans' oils to pass through. On a daily basis, simply rinse the filter under running water. To remove build-up due to coffee bean oil and mineral deposits, soak the filter in a vinegar solution.
