Reusable Coffee Filter Vs. Paper Filter?

Good Question

Q: In response to this post on reusable mesh coffee filters, I'm wondering: we have one of those and recently we switched back to paper filters. Emptying and cleaning the reusable filter every day (2x a day on weekends when we're riding the caffeine train!) took a ton of water and it was just so messy. We also wondered if using all that water was any better than throwing out the little paper filters. What do other folks think?
