No more coffee filters!

For as long as I can recall, I've purchased my paper coffee filters from one of the local 7-Elevens in Beijing. During these past couple weeks, every single 7-Eleven I've been to has stopped stocking coffee filters. Bizarre.



I've had to order my filters on Taobao.com, the Chinese eBay. How are Chinese folks brewing their morning coffee these days? How is this lapse of judgment by 7-Eleven going unprotested by Chinese people? I don't understand it.

Maybe people are dealing with it by doing the college thing where you substitute several sheets of toilet paper as a coffee filter. I could never get that to work in college — it always made my coffee taste like shit. (Ha.)
