"Hi! Hey, look, this is not your typical commercial paper product with all the added chemicals and fillers. YES-- it is going to be slightly more delicate.
I have once or twice ended up with a filter that broke in a spot and each time, it was due to my own heavy-handedness with it, unwittingly, of course. Maybe just not paying enough attention to what I was doing... and spotted my error after I had a little mess to clean up-- no big deal, really.
I've never had one rupture with seemingly no reason behind it. I continued to buy this company's filters ever since *I* broke a few of them... so I need to be more mindful? I can go for that.
Don't hesitate to buy these if you want a chem-free paper that's probably better for you and yes, my coffee DOES taste good with these!"
