The fine stainless steel filter is a replacement for all the 1 Mug / 3 Cup / 350ml cafetiere coffee presses in the Barista & Co range. An additional filter can also be purchased if you would like to add to your current press for a cleaner coffee with less coffee grounds.

This cafetiere replacement filter is easy to install and allows you to keep using your Core Coffee Press to brew fresh, specialty coffee at home. Please note the size when purchasing your spare filters.

To change the metal filter on a cafetiere (French press), follow these steps:

  1. Disassemble the Plunger:

    • Separate the plunger assembly by unscrewing the metal rod from the mesh filter. This usually involves twisting the metal rod counterclockwise.
  2. Remove the Old Filter:

    • Take out the old metal filter from the plunger assembly. If it's stuck, gently tap the plunger on a soft surface to release the filter.
  3. Clean the Plunger:

    • Before inserting the new filter, make sure to clean the plunger thoroughly, removing any coffee grounds or residue.
  4. Insert the New Metal Filter:

    • Place the new metal filter into the plunger assembly. Ensure it fits snugly and sits flat to create a proper seal.
  5. Reassemble the Plunger:

    • Reattach the metal rod to the plunger assembly by screwing it back in a clockwise direction. Tighten it securely but avoid overtightening.
  6. Test the Cafetiere:

    • After replacing the filter, test the cafetiere by pushing the plunger down and up a few times without coffee grounds to ensure smooth operation.

Changing the metal filter is a simple process that helps maintain the performance and quality of your cafetiere for optimal coffee brewing.

How often should I replace the filter in my Core Coffee Press?

The metal filter in a French press should be replaced when it shows signs of damage or wear, such as warping or tearing, and the frequency depends on factors like usage, cleaning habits, and overall maintenance. With regular inspection and proper care, a metal filter can typically last several months to a couple of years.

My cafetiere lets too many grounds into my cup, is there anything I can do?

The metal mesh filter is designed to stop coarse ground coffee getting into your cup, but as it is not as fine as a paper filter it does allow a small amount of residual grounds through. The easiest way to solve this is to get a second mesh filter and add that onto your cafetiere plunger.

    Happy Customer

    I was very pleased to find that you sold spare parts, so helpful to keep my press in order!

    Mrs Nadia Payne

    Excellent filter.


    I ordered another filter as I prefer to keep spares but I don't expect to need it for a long time as they are very good quality and easy to keep clean.
