Costa Rican Coffee

In Costa Rica, the traditional way of coffee brewing is by using the “CHORREADOR,” which means “to drip,” referring to the pouring of hot water over coffee grounds. A chorreador itself is the base, usually wooden, that holds the “bolsa” or “bolsita,” the small cotton bag filled with coffee. Because of the bag’s sock-like appearance, some people call it a coffee sock..
