How to eliminate the wood pulp paper smell of coffee filter paper to avoid affecting coffee aroma?
A common question for coffee beginners when making hand-brewed coffee is about “how to eliminate the wood pulp paper smell of coffee filter paper to avoid affecting the coffee aroma?”
If the drinker grows a pair of dog noses, then a cafe friend’s suggestion can refer to it.
When this friend made hand-brewed single-origin coffee, he would blanch the coffee filter paper with hot water and the filter cup after spreading the coffee powder filter paper.
My friend said that there are three advantages to this!
The first is that the cup can be warmed, and it is not easy to over-cool the flavor when making hot water.
The second is to eliminate the smell (peculiar smell) of the coffee filter paper.
The third is to make the soaked filter paper fit more closely to the inside of the filter cup, so that no air bubbles will be generated during brewing, so as to avoid affecting the smoothness of brewing.
