    Sock Coffee - a better cup ?

    like to solicit some opinions on the making of (good) sock coffee

    sock coffee is made with a small cloth bag containing ground coffee through which hot water is poured a single time
    this method is common where electricity is not and presumably is a step up from just boiling the grounds directly
    (solvent extraction with hot water)

    as I drink ~5 cups/day, I have been making all 5 at once and nuking by cup as I drink
    it has always been somewhat apparent that the first cup was superior in terms of flavor/taste
    and today I had visitors from 5 AM and was making multiple pots, and the first cup was markedly better each pot

    I am wondering if I should try and optimize (my) sock coffee ?
    does this mean one cup at a time ?

    Only five cups a day?! I have never tried sock coffee.
    Do you use the same cloth? Perhaps the cloth is dry the first time, and then you are rinsing it out, using it again, and being wet affects filtration? No idea really.

    the 'socks' are fairly thin ~ 6" long on a wire for support, 1/day and they are fairly dry
    I suspect the nuking + aging (20-90 min) is causing the change

    when the power is out I reheat by putting a full cup in a sm pot of water on the gas stove
    am not sure I notice a difference, but seems not as good as fresh

    I personally don't want to taste Sock, Foot Sweat, Toe Jam Or Sock Dye when I drink coffee

    Jeff, that's called "boot coffee"
    socks are added to give it more body

    I have noticed niuking coffee does change the taste for the worse.
    I have a 42 cup percolater. For a time I wondered why I could not get the taste of diner coffee. Then I tried coffee mate.It makes a world of difference. But I drink coffee black, with a little whole milk, with sugar only when I eat out, cold, whatever. Started when nine or so.

    You are on to something. Maybe he needs to use socks which he wore the previous day?
