Same here. I came across an old Coffee Geek post from around 2006 or so a while back where someone was contemplating doing that so I thought I'd give it a try. I really like it! In fact I liked it so much that I've begun using a pair of scissors to trim off the extra inch that hangs over the edge of the technivorm basket to make a perfect fit. The cup comes out really clean tasting without losing any of the flavors the technivorm is so adept at bringing out, a fun change of pace. I still use my swiss gold and filtropa #4 too but it's nice having another weapon in my arsenal :-)

Alson one of the reason I do it is because my #4 filters are a bit smaller then the other ones I've used before. So when I brew a full 75g/1.25L I'm afraid that the brew will over flow the filter and coffee grains will go in the carafe....

I've noticed that benefit when brewing super fresh beans before. The bloom sometimes puffs up onto the basket over the filter. One time with the chemex I saw the bloom went higher than the level of my usual #4s and I thought "win!!!!" :-)
