I bought this filter cone having thrown away too many plastic one-time individual coffee filters (and their two free lids).

I use Melitta filter papers (Size: 1 x 2; one pound twentyish for 40 papers) and two scoops (scoop provided) of espresso ground Lavazza.

If the coffee is not espresso ground then it's not fine enough and the hot water will rush over the ground coffee and you get a very flavourless cup of coffee. I know, I tried some 'suitable for all coffee makers' coffee and it wasn't suitable!

It's environmentally friendly as filter the paper and ground coffee go straight into my compost bin and the cone gets rinsed and re-used.

These filter cones are the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to make filter coffee. I already had a porcelain cone, but found it had a very slow filter-rate. This one is much quicker - you can have a cup of filter coffee within 30 seconds of the kettle boiling.

Since it's Melitta, it takes the Melitta filter papers perfectly, and feels pretty robust and should last for a while. A fiver is an ok price for it too.

If, like me, you lack the patience to faff around for ages making filter coffee, this is a really good solution.

I was looking for a small Melitta Cone to replace my old well used Melitta one.
When the new one arrived I was disappointed to find out that the hole in the new one is 3 times bigger than in my old one. With the new cone, if I use the same amount of coffee as before, I get a very weak drink, and to get the drink I am used to I have to put twice as much coffee as before.

Pity that in the coffee cones' descriptions the important information about the number of holes and their diameter is omitted.

Melitta is still one of the best cones available, I will be using it no doubt, but I would need to find the way to reduce the size of the hole (or buy more coffee!)...

Good product, taken it to work for use there.
Water does run through quite quickly if you fill it up all in one go however if you do it a little at a time then you get a nice cup of coffee. Much more cost effective than buying the single use, disposable pre-filled cup-top coffee filters and works just as well, plus you get to choose your coffee!
Would recommend it to others

Perfect.
Makes one or two cups with no fuss.
Takes my 1/2 filters fine. (might take bigger ones).
Will sit on a jug or any cup.
Slightly flexible so shouldn't shatter like my old one... has survived several drops so far.
I'm no gourmet, but never notice any "plastic" flavour to my coffee.
Does drain a little faster than my old one though.

For me buying an expensive machine is pointless. This little cone, plus filters bought separately at any supermarket makes coffee as good as it gets. Go for it!

This is the best thing ever! Me and my girlfriend has one each, and we use this as our main coffee maker.

It's easy to bring on vacations! A must as not many countries serve proper filter coffee.

Why spend out on coffee machines when with this thing, a grinder and a filter paper produces extra superb coffee.

I searched high and low all over Europe to find one of these, I'm so glad Amazon UK is stocking them now. I am of course delighted to have received it, and the scoop which was a bonus. I have been making coffee using the drip/filter method since I986 when I first when to Iceland.
Now, after trying many other systems, I find it still to be the easiest and the best way to make coffee at home.

Simple,tried and tested way of making coffee - fits over a mug,jug or a coffee thermos. First discovered these in Sweden in 1962 and have used them ever since. An amazing number of people don't know about them and spend hundreds on fancy machines,silly cafetierres etc.

A great buy. Slightly worrying that the filter papers are not always in stock in either Tesco or Waitrose.
