How does a cotton filter for cold brew coffee affect the taste compared to no filter?


There are cotton filters for home cold-brewed coffee, but it would also be possible to make cold brew without any sort of filter during the brewing, just run it through a disposable filter afterward.

How would not using a filter to cold brew and filter afterward compare tastewise to using a cotton coffee sock?

Why should this post be closed?

My experience:

  1. Coffee + water in container, filter afterwards: good.

  2. Coffee in fine-mesh bag in water in container: good, but needs longer brew time or some agitation.

  3. Coffee in steel mesh suspended in water: good, needs slightly longer brew time.
