CoffeeSock® reusable coffee filter
Are you tired of having to re-order paper filters for your Hario type drip coffee brewer? We sure are! 🙂 So we decided to order and test run the CoffeeCock Organic Cotton Reusable Coffee Filter for the Hario V60 cone dripper.
Use them just as you would a paper filter.
Initially we are pleased with the results, and very much like not having to use paper filters, which in turn reduces the environmental impact and expense of pour-over coffee brewing. We noticed a slightly different taste with the first brew, we’re assuming it’s because certain compounds are not being filtered out, or there is a sizing or something in the cotton that will leach out eventually. So we tossed the first cup, and brewed a second. This time most of the taste was gone, although the coffee extraction seems to be a little higher than with a paper filter, but that could reduce with more use, meanwhile adjustments to grind might be in order.
It’s possible that maybe these filters are better than paper! We think that the cotton is more of an inert material than paper and doesn’t impart flavor into the coffee. We will update this article after a couple weeks as the filters become more seasoned.
Our only complaint is that cleaning the grounds out of the filter is a bit messy if you’re composting, but that’s not really an issue.
CoffeeSock also makes reusable coffee filters for Kalita Wave, Chemex, Drip Cone #2, #4, #6, Disc, Basket and more.
