Only the best
OREA tested a lot of "batch brewer" papers and did not find any that they quite liked. Usually they are very thin and slow - forcing you to grind super coarse to have any reasonable performance. At the same time, we were in the process of developing their own wave-shaped paper for the OREA Brewer V3 with some fantastic results. OREA decided to scale up this paper and make it available for the Big Boy too - which is great news for all.
A two year search
Many people have asked OREA for their own wave-shaped paper filter since they got started, but truthfully, it was always hard to find something better than what OREA could find on the market. As such, OREA kept searching rather than releasing something sub-standard. A two year search has yielded a great result as they finally were able to finally bring the best paper option for this shape of filter - we hope you will love it.
Thick, but porous
The paper construction is quite thick but also porous, which helps improve performance compared to other basket batch filters. The size is quite unique to the Big Boy brewer, with its 8cm flat bottom.
Clean results, without papery taste
In the cup, you will have superior clarity but no papery taste - which was a very important factor. A high quality paper stock from Japan provides the basis for the superior results of this paper compared to other options on the market.
Plug & play
OREA knows they have a lot of filter options for their brewers, including the flat papers and Negotiator system - but OREA wants to provide plug and play simple options too. The wave paper for the Big Boy is the simplest filter method allowing you to just grab one, throw it in, and start brewing. If you want to expand and test many paper styles - for faster or higher extraction brews, we've got your back too with the Negotiator system. If you just want something simple, then this wave paper is for you.
Fast but not the fastest option
This paper is fast, but not the fastest option we have for this brewer. If you want to brew quicker and grind finer, we recommend using the Negotiator and the Sibarist FAST Flat papers.
