A Kalita - Easily available and decent price.

I've only used 'a' and 'd.' I prefer Orea flats because Kalitas are more likely to clog toward the end. In the cup the taste is pretty similar and Kalitas are cheaper. So bottom line: not that big of a difference, if you are buying for me, Orea, if I'm buying--I'm sick of shipping--Kalita--of those two.

I'll check them out again. Kalita is on Amazon and free shipping. Those orea flats $$$ from UK

Sibarist papers are game changers if you have a great grinder and high quality coffee.
