  • Drying and aged tone : When the coffee filter is only moist, place in the sun until dry. You can leave some of the coffee grounds dry with the filter, so you can achieve that old effect of this type of handicraft. When completely dry, use a brush to remove any remaining coffee powder from the filter.
  • Controlling tones : One of the differentials of the coffee filter are the textures that can be created through drying it after use to strain the coffee. You can choose the hue you want to give your filter by the amount of leach you leave in it when it dries.
