LOCA Coffee Ceramic Filter

Your coffee could taste much better.
Our unique three-dimensional ceramic technology
removes any unpleasant tastes and draws out the essence of coffee,
which is its clear and smooth taste.
We will change your concept of coffee and lifestyle with coffee.

To the Pinnacle of Pour Over Evolution!

Form & Function

Our filter is seemingly a solid piece of artwork,
but this special ceramic system is composed of countless micro-pores through which coffee or other beverages are filtered.

The resulting taste and aroma of your coffee or beverage is unparalleled compared to other pour-over systems.

This makes the LOCA Ceramic FilterTM an ideal pour-over system.
With proper periodic maintenance, our filter will last a lifetime.

Bitterness is largely removed, and any roughness is smoothed out quite nicely.

Our taste analysis was conducted by the Intelligent Sensor Technology Corporation,
Taste Analysis TS-50002, Saga Industrial Technical Center.

How to make your favorite coffee

Using warm water, please ensure that warm water flows at an acceptable rate through your filter.

Please put the desired amount of very-coarse ground coffee beans in your filter.

Please steam the coffee beans with warm water for 30 seconds.

Please pour boiled water into the filter 5-6 times within 4 minutes with a kettle.

After-use Care

  • After each use, gently rinse filter with water only. The use of detergent may bind to the pores, spoiling future beverage flavor.
  • Rinse well until water coming out of the filter becomes clear.

Periodic maintenance: How to clear a clogged filter

Since the pores of the filter are extremely fine, clogging occurs after repeated use. If the flow rate becomes lower, clogging is beginning to occur. Follow the instruction below to clear a clogged filter.


Place the filter face up on a steel net and fire for about 10 min until smoke does not comes out.
Fire the whole surface by turning it using tongs.


Put baking soda (2 spoons) in a boiling pot and boil the filter for 10-20 min.
Or fill a microwave-safe bowl with enough water, put baking soda (2 spoons) in a boiling pot, and heat in the microwave(500W/5 min, 700W/3 min).

  • Be sure that the top of filter is facing up.
  • Before use, please rinse well with warm water to clean off the baking soda.
  • Please be sure to use baking soda that is sold as safe for human consumption (i.e., sold for use as a food additive or as an antacid).
  • The filter will be extremely hot after firing or boiling. Please be sure to let the filter cool before use.
  • The filter may break if cooled immediately.
  • Clogging may not be dissolved if not being boiled long enough.
