Batch Brew Coffee Filter Papers: Choosing the Correct Paper For Your Coffee Machine

Batch Brew Coffee Filter Papers:

How to choose the right one for your office, pub or restaurant filter coffee machine?

Selecting the right filter paper for your businesses coffee machine can be challenging: the range is vast, and the description often poor. Moreover even if you are aware of a particular brand, it is difficult to shop around.

There are a huge number of great value alternatives that do the job brilliantly. You also have a lot of choice in the quantities you buy, as the decision to buy in bulk to save costs, vs regularly to save space is a vital one.

The best starting point is working out just what size your machine is, normally in terms of the volume of coffee it makes in one brewing. For most machines this will in turn relate to a particular size of filter paper.

Measurement is normally described by the diameter of the circle of the top/diameter of the circle at the bottom.

3 Pint / 1.8 litre coffee machines – View our Range Here

These are the most common, and include machines by Apollo, Bravilor, Buffalo, Burco, Coffee Queen, Cona, Hobart, Kenco, Marco & Technivorm

Expect to get around 3 pints, or 8 to 10 full mugs of coffee from a full brew.

The filters themselves measure around 241mm (top circle) / 89mm (bottom circle), or thereabouts. Some small variation in this is fine, as the fit is fairly loose.

Machines this filter size is good for include the following:

Bravilor Bonamat Filter Coffee Machine Filter Papers at Redber Burco Filter Coffee Machine Filter Papers at Redber Buffalo Filter Coffee Machine Filter Papers at Redber Marco Filter Coffee Papers at Redber
Novo CF593 F454 Bru F60M
Iso CF594 G108 Bru F45M
Mondo CFFMFST J510 F45A
Matic T418 F60A
TH DN487



1 to 1.5 Gallon / 5 Litre Coffee Machines - View our Range Here

This is getting into a larger scale, more common for restaurants, busy coffee shops & catering and events, but will also be good for mid sized and offices

 Brands which use this size include machines by Bunn, Marco (particularly the Qwikbrew, and Bravilor (the B5 and the Aurora).

The filter measure around 349mm / 108mm.

3 Gallon / 10 Litre Coffee Machines - View our Range Here

This is beginning to get into proper bulk brew range and will include Bravilor as well as some Bunn filter machines, getting about 50 to 60 cups per brewing.

The size should be in the range of 464mm / 191mm


Larger Catering Filters - 20 Litres to 40 Litres - View our Range Here

These are serious machines producing up to 10 gallons. In the UK this is most likely to be one of Bravillors B20 or B40 machines(which can produce a whopping 80 litres at a time using two brewers).

These filters are expensive and BIG, so generics can be a fantastic option, as can be different sizes of orders depending on your needs.

What is Filter Grind for Coffee?

By Graham Jones on Feb 29, 2024

Filter grind refers to the consistency of coffee grounds optimized for use in filter brewing methods. This encompasses a broad spectrum of devices from the classic drip coffee maker to pour-overs and the Aeropress. The grind size for these methods is typically medium, resembling coarse sand. This size ensures that hot water can properly extract the coffee's flavours and aromas without passing through too quickly, as it might with a finer grind, or too slowly, as with a coarser grind.
