“They are made from coffee filters,” Odegard explained. “They are reusable, washable, and there’s a replaceable filter, and you can use it up to 30 days.” A perfect mask for many of its customers. “And, it smells like coffee so it’s a cool bonus,” Odegard said.
Making a cup of coffee isn’t just a great way to start the day … it’s also an art form. There are loads of ways to do it—french press, aeropress, moka pot, pour over—depending on the gear you have, the flavors you prefer, and your favorite preparation methods. If pour over is your go-to, you’ll need to invest in great coffee filters that are reliable, easy to use, and don’t add a paper-y flavor to the mix.
Wearing a coffee filter as a COVID-19-fighting mask isn’t entirely as ridiculous as it sounds. As Melitta—the German company credited with inventing the paper coffee filter—will tell you, they already make a standard-sized cone filter that fits the face perfectly.
