The Coffee Sock is a cloth coffee filter that is an eco-friendly replacement for paper coffee filters. I recently purchased a Coffee Sock for my personal 5 cup coffee maker. Although up until now Iâ€™ve been composting my unbleached coffee filters, I figured Iâ€™d give the Coffee Sock a try.
Iâ€™ve been very pleased with the result. Although the Coffee Sock required a bit of care and maintenance, Iâ€™ve found that my coffee actually tastes better than with a paper filter. This is the most surprising thing about my experience.
I was also surprised to read that the life expectancy of my coffee sock is only about 4-5 months or so. This is ok, though, as the manufacturers have made a great effort to make the materials 100% biodegradable.
Overall, for $4.99, Iâ€™m very pleased with my Coffee Sock. Itâ€™s eco-friendly and has actually improved the experience of my morning ritual.
