THE SIMPLE ELEGANCE OF A REUSABLE FILTER
Use fewer resources, save money, and enjoy better coffee. What's more elegant than that? Use this two-pack of filters with your Auto Drip Coffee Maker. Brew. Dump. Rinse. Dry. Repeat.
What makes it taste so great? CoffeeSock filters are made with Certified Organic Cotton. Cotton imparts no flavor on the finished brew, unlike paper. Cotton is 90% cellulose, which is a tasteless and odorless compound that is insoluble in water. Cotton absorbs some of the oils released from coffee beans yet lets acids pass through. The resulting cup is clear crisp, rich and robust with all the acid of paper brewed coffee, without the paper taste, and all of the richness of French press without the heavy oiliness.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
CoffeeSock was birthed late 2011 in a 'necessity is the mother of invention' moment. Out of Chemex coffee filters, and with an old traveling Chorreador, aka 'coffee sock' from Costa Rica as inspiration, we made an organic fabric filter for the Chemex. It performed so well that we were inspired to create models for all popular coffee brewing processes. As we began to offer these for sale, the reception was so enthusiastic that we turned all of our attention to developing a brand, a family business, and to changing the world ONE SOCK AT A TIME!
