Trade the paper for cloth

Organic Cotton Coffee Filters


Ever since the first days of GDS, it's been our mission to build connections between fiber origin and finished product. Ebb will be our first product to create a transparent process from farm all the way into the homes of pourover coffee lovers.

To develop a fabric that brews delicious pourover coffee, we partnered with a mill in South Carolina and an organic cotton farm in Texas. After a year of testing, weaving and more testing, the fabric is developed and the mill is ready to go. With your help, we can order our carefully developed fabric and grow our studio to make Ebb available in a more meaningful way. 

Our goal is to raise over $16K by the end of March. With our community's help–customers, clients, collaborators, neighbors, friends and family–we can turn our "seed to cup" dream into a reality!

"There is something wonderfully ineffable about coffee filtered with a flannel cloth. The technique is quite different than filtering through paper, and, in my opinion, a little trickier, but the result, especially in the texture of the finished product, has a luminosity which shines brighter and deeper than a well made paper-filtered coffee. Ebb cloth filters are the best I've tried in the united states, and I love that they are made from organically certified material."

"Usually, cloth filters are gross—they're off putting, hard to maintain, and sort of fussy. But the Ebb filter is incredibly simple and easy. I take it with me when I travel, and it's made brewing on the road really straightforward. It's also beautifully stitched. I love sharing the craft of home coffee brewing and the wonderfully crafted tools that make coffee brewing alluring."

"Ebb filters are quite possibly the most luxurious filter medium for brewing. The cloth transforms and transmits silken layers and autumnal textures to the cup. These filters have the potential to truly elevate a coffee. It is obvious that a great deal of thought and care have gone into this product."
