These simple reusable coffee filters are the perfect alternative to disposable coffee filters. Easy to use, and all you need to do to clean them is compost the grounds, rinse, and hang to dry. Plus, even compostable filters take a lot of water to produce and carbon to transport, so reusable filters dramatically reduce the footprint of your morning coffee ritual.
Drip #2: Made to fit Cone #2 Drippers. Dimensions: 7.75” W x 4.5” H
Drip #4: Made to fit Cone #4 Drippers and Auto Drip Coffee Makers. Dimensions: 8.75” W x 6.5” H
Use and care
Initially, boil your filters in fresh water to clean and shrink for about 10 minutes. For a hot brew, brew as is customary with your favorite method, compost the grounds, and thoroughly rinse filter. Hang to dry. Periodically, once every 4-6 weeks, boil the filters in fresh water to remove any accumulated coffee oils. If you'd like, you can add a scoop of baking soda to the regular cleaning process to enhance your filter.
Made of 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
Recyclable and compostable paper box.
The filters are made in Austin, TX by CoffeeSock. All filters are sewn and packaged by happy human beings making a fair and living wage. Their cotton is all GOTS certified organic (GOTS also monitors labor practices and working conditions), and currently grown in Texas, India, and Pakistan.
End of life
If at some point you wish to dispose of a filter, they can be cut into strips and composted, since they are organic cotton.
I got this as a gift for my mom (the drip #2) as she is a coffee fanatic and she loves them! The thing that she loves the most about them is how easy they are to clean: just rinse with water and air dry, reuse a few times until a run through the laundry is needed. I highly recommend it for any coffee lovers out there.
I was primarily looking for a sustainable replacement for single-use coffee filters. When I purchased, the #2 filters were out of stock (I make my coffee with a single-use pour over dripper, which calls for a #2 filter) BUT I purchased the #4 option and it still fits and works perfectly fine! My coffee filters through this coffee sock more quickly than my paper filters (leading to more watered down coffee), but I simply need to figure out how to adjust my coffee grind.
Easy to clear -- I dump my used coffee grinds into the compost, rinse this coffee sock, and let it dry out overnight. Would recommend!
