Melitta Coffee Makers, Filters & Gourmet Coffees Now Available19 Jun 2017
The Melitta name has stood for passion and quality for over 100 years. In 1908, Melitta filters and drip coffee were founded by a housewife in Minden, Germany. Melitta Bentz was in search of a better way to make a cleaner cup of coffee. So she punched holes in a brass pot and used a piece of paper to create a two-part filtration system. She put the pot on a cup, filled it with ground coffee and poured in hot water. The coffee filter and drip coffee were born. More than 100 years later, Melitta Bentz’s innovation remains the precursor to all modern pour-over and drip coffee brewing worldwide.
Melitta is dedicated to providing the ultimate coffee experience with gourmet coffees, filters and coffeemakers.
