Anyone know where I can find unbleached coffee filters in the 4-cup basket style? I can find every other size/type in unbleached EXCEPT the ones I need! I don't want dioxins in my coffee and buying the bigger ones and trimming them to fit is not particularly fun. I thought about a reusable filter but realistically at this point that just isn't going to happen so I need to stick with the paper ones

Could you get regular size ones and cut them down :think? I haven't seen them anywhere, either.

Not any help - but I was just in the Frontier catalog and didn't see any of what you are looking for.
I also have tried the cotton reusable filter before, and didn't like it. It didn't flow well. It's in the compost pile now.

Hmmmm...are those the conical ones? I just got some conical unbleached ones at Bi-Lo. I'm not sure if that's what your'e talking about though. It's in the red and green box and the brand name starts with M. :shrug (Do you have a Bi-Lo? that may be a regional thing :giggle)

Wait, I think you're not talking conical since you said basket-style. :scratch

I bought my unbleached basket filters from Safeway..I can find them in almost any store here :scratch

I can find the large size basket ones anywhere but they're a little too tall for my little 4-cup coffee maker. I have a few bleached ones left that I'm going through but I wanted to find unbleached before I have to buy a new package.

:think I could have sworn I used a 4c natural basket filter before switching to my single cone coffee maker...maybe I am mistaken though and it was just a fluted filter that fit all sizes? I looked for 45min online for you and nothing.

I wonder...would these work??

I don't think those are porous enough.
