The Coffee Sock and I first crossed paths while I was doing some volunteer work in East Timor (official name Timor-Leste). East Timor is an amazing place and if you haven’t heard of it you can find out more HERE.
I remember before setting out on my journey to East Timor I was a little anxious about how I would feed my coffee addition. I packed a plunger in my luggage, but when I arrived I opened by bag to discover the glass smashed! Boo coffee plunger.
Hearing of my crisis one of my new friends swiftly introduced me to the cotton coffee sock. I must admit at first I had my doubts;
- Would it taste like cotton?
- It looks dirty!
- Is it hygienic?
But I tasted the coffee and it was good. Really good!
So I quickly went out and purchased my very first coffee sock. Yes it did look dirty after a few uses but that is just the coffee oils staining the cotton. Now it has been over 3 years and not a day goes by when I don’t use my Coffee Sock at least 3 times a day!
