CoffeeSock filters are made in Austin, Texas. All filters are sewn and packaged by happy human beings making a fair and living wage. We are dedicated to keep manufacturing in the US and while it is currently not possible to obtain the 100% of the fabric that we need as US made, we are continually seeking that opportunity. Today our cotton is grown in Texas, India and Pakistan. All is GOTS certified Organic. GOTS also monitors labor practices and working conditions.
CoffeeSock currently offers filters made of organically grown, untreated cotton, for use in systems that require #2, #4,and #6 cone filters, basket filters, Hario v60 filters, and Chemex filters. We also produce Travel Coffee Socks, Home Cold Brew Systems, and Cold Brew Commercial filters.
CoffeeSock came about by necessity. We are obsessive coffee drinkers and were out of filters. Recalling that we have a hand held “coffee sock” brought home from travels in Costa Rica, we brewed with that; and as we enjoyed that superior cup of coffee we were transported back to the cold, early mornings huddled over our steaming cups of rich “sock-brewed”, Monteverde grown, joy. Could a cotton filter possibly work with our Chemex? Would it brew with the same character of flavor as our traveling “coffee sock”? ....it did!
After much research and development, material changes, and scientific testing, we had a cloth Chemex style filter that is reusable, higher quality, and less expensive than current market alternatives. Subsequently we have created cotton filters for all popular, filtered brewing systems. All of these filter styles have been tested and designed to ensure that they perform as well as all commonly available alternatives. We feel that every system filter style outperforms the alternatives, while being less costly, and less wasteful.
