Many steel filters have now replaced the ancient Brass filters, but when it comes to its taste and therapeutic properties, Brass filters are truly unmatched. Brass is an alloy of Copper and Zinc. Since it has copper, it has antimicrobial properties. Brass is alkaline in nature and is oxidised or in other words becomes acidic when it comes in contact with air. This is why brass is always covered when not in use. Due to its alkalinity, it is used in the preparation of many cookware such as the coffee filter. It neutralises the acidic nature of the food that's cooked or prepared in it. The Zinc in Brass regulates the immune system and its role ranges from inflammatory responses to antibody production. It also plays a role in wound healing by removing bacteria, tissue debris removal, formation of new blood vessels and scar formation. Using Brass can provide one with all these benefits.
These Brass Coffee filters are truly timeless and with proper care, they can last through generations. So, if you love your morning coffee, give it a traditional twist by making it in one of our Brass Coffee Filters, made manually by our rural artisans.
Over time, exposure to air and moisture causes black spots, patches or a dark, smudge-like film called 'tarnish' on Brass. Periodically polish your Brass filter and Davara set with a suitable metal polish to keep it sparkling. The shine can be brought back with little scrub of tamarind paste or Brass polishing. Refrain from using steel wired scrubs.
