The World in Your Cup
The history of coffee would not be complete – or coffee as good – without the contributions of German housewife, Melitta Bentz. She revolutionized the coffee industry back in 1908 by inventing the pour-over method of making coffee, literally changing the world of coffee drinking…one cup at a time. Her innovation – a two-part filter system – was simple, though ground-breaking. With the goal of making coffee taste better, she transformed coffee consumption, and hers is still one of the most widely used brewing methods in the world.
Without her idea and the resourcefulness to make it happen, coffee – with its enticing aroma and flavor – might not have become one of the world’s favorite beverages. For more than 100 years, Melitta has dedicated itself to providing the ultimate coffee experience with its gourmet coffees, filters and coffee makers – everything needed to make a perfect cup of coffee.
