No. 6 cone-shape drip coffee filters -- Are they extinct?
Hounds, For years I've used a No. 6 cone filter drip coffee maker, the basic heat your water and pour it through your grounds. Now I need a replacement, but cannot find either No. 6 paper filters nor a No. 6 cone in the West Los Angeles area. Did the manufacturers of coffee makers and parts stop making these?
If anyone know where I can find one, please let me know. I'm temporarily (I hope) using a No. 4 Melitta cone and coffee pot for now.
Many thanks for any help.
Not according to Amazon:
Ooops, that says unavailable!
How 'bout this one (scroll down to the cones):
I just got a vintage but unused porcelain Melitta No. 6 from eBay. Unfortunately, it has some deep pits despite the seller's reassurance before selling that it didn't.
I see No. 6's on eBay every so often, but the ones I've seen have all been vintage and almost all used. I'm not sure Melitta makes the No. 6 porcelain anymore, but could be wrong.
I have plastic Melittas in both the #2 & #4 size. As I menitoned on another coffee thread, I use a manual drip coffee maker at our place up north (no electricity, I won't turn the generator on for an electric coffee maker) because I hate percolated coffee. Anyway, I found one of those aluminum 'Drip 'O Lator' manual drip coffee pots at a thrift store for $1.80. I have an aunt and uncle that have been using one like that since they got married in 1946.
