Organic Cotton Coffee Filters
We love making coffee with a reusable organic cotton filter. A great alternative to paper filters, the organic cotton makes for a better tasting coffee and no extra waste.
Cleanup is quick and easy - empty filter of grounds (makes a great compost or add straight to your garden), rinse and hang to dry.
A small upfront investment saves money compared to buying paper filters. And when it is worn out - after a year or more of regular use - there are no metal, plastic or other difficult-to-recycle bits to deal with.
Some of our cotton filters are made here in Toronto by the Regent Park Sewing Circle and some are made in Texas, by the lovely people at CoffeeSock. Both versions are made from 100% cotton and TLC.
Coffee brewed with in an organic cotton coffee filter is rich in aromatic oils, smooth, with balanced acids. No unpleasant bitterness or bad attitude - especially when used with fresh roasted Sparkplug Coffee.

Not sure what type of filter you need?
The cone filters are also known as pour-overs or manual coffeemakers
#2 size is a one-serving size
#4 is a 2-person size
#6 is the largest and makes a nice pot of coffee
Hario-style filters are like a funnel - round and coming down to a point
we carry a one-cup size, equivalent to the Hario 02 size
Note that we are sold out of the basket filters yet again - these are designed for flat-bottomed filters found in most automatic coffeemakers. If you'd like to be notified when they're back in stock, send us an email via our contact form.
If you're not sure what to order, give us a call or send us an email. We're happy to help figure it out!
Made in Toronto by the Regent Park Sewing Circle
Threading together community members to:
Learn sewing skills
Build a social network
Regent Park is a neighbourhood of Toronto that was built as a public housing project in the 1940s. Until recently, all its residents were poor, a requirement to access public housing, and the community had a higher than average representation of visible minorities, new immigrants and refugees.
Threading together people of the community, the Regent Park Sewing Circle is a collective of men and women of all ages and cultures, who join together to create sewing projects.
We are proud to support this initiative which is based in our neighbourhood, just around the corner from Sparkplug HQ. And are super happy with the filters!
