How To Make A Coffee In A Mug Using A Coffee Sock
A coffee sock, also known as a drip maker, is as simple in design as its name suggests: a small, tightly wound piece of cloth attached to an elastic metal band. The coffee maker uses the same methods of filtration and immersion (such as a press) as the more common drip coffee maker. However, the coffee sock does not use the basket and plunger filter method typical of drip coffee makers. Instead, the cloth is used to draw the coffee through a tube that extends from the coffee maker to the cup.
Unlike a drip coffee maker where the grounds are drawn into the basket, the coffee sock draws the coffee through the filter first, then the grounds. Because the coffee goes through the filter and the grounds before it gets to the cup, there is little risk of over-brewing or acidic coffee. This is because there is less room for the oils in coffee to remain, so the coffee remains in a nearly clear form but with much less acid.
The coffee sock comes in many styles but two stand out as particularly popular choices. The first is the "chemex" coffee sock, which is named after the brand of the device (a division of Kenmore). The chemex is perhaps best known for its ability to make cold brew. Many people prefer the standard coffee maker, which is easy to find at department stores such as Walmart, but you can also find models made by Kenmore and other major manufacturers.
The coffee sock is a convenient way to make iced coffee. Simply place the sterile coffee sock into the pot and place a small ice cube inside along with your sugar (if using). Turn the machine on and set the dial to low. After a couple of minutes, turn the power off. The ice will freeze and the ice cubes will make it easier to pour into your glass.
Another method of making iced coffee using the coffee sock involves using the provided lid of the pot, pouring the contents into the mug and then placing the lid back on for an instant brew. Be sure that you are using a mug that is wide enough to allow room for a good amount of ice to build up. If you do not have a lid for your pot or mug, you can also use a coffee mug without a lid. You can just add ground coffee in the same manner.
The real trick is in the process. This takes about three minutes from start to finish. Start by filling the pot with coffee grounds. Add the sugar and turn on the power button. Within a few minutes, the coffee will be ready.
Next, you will need to add the coffee powder into your mug and place the lid on. Allow the coffee to sit for approximately three minutes before you take the coffee out of the mugs and pour it into the mug. Now you can insert the lid and shake to mix the ingredients together. The coffee will taste much better if you remember to shake it every three minutes. After you have finished brewing the coffee, you can remove the coffee sock and enjoy your hot coffee.
This is a great trick to try to help save money on your coffee budget. By using a coffee sock, you will be able to have a nice, warm cup of coffee for less than the price of buying a full pot of coffee at a local cafe. This may seem like a little bit of a cheat, but it is definitely worth the little bit of extra cost. In addition, it is much cheaper than purchasing a pricey cup of coffee at a supermarket or gas station. If you drink coffee often, you may want to consider making your own cup of coffee at home so that you do not have to spend money on expensive coffee drinks at restaurants.
