Our Heritage Series celebrates our rich and flavorful history. For over 100 years, the Melitta brand has been synonymous with Pour-Over™ brewing. That’s because it was 1908 when Melitta Bentz, a German housewife, invented the Pour-Over™. She was tired of drinking bitter coffee, so she punched holes in a brass pot and used a piece of her son’s blotting paper to create a two-part filtration system. This innovation forever changed the way people brew their coffee worldwide. The Melitta brand has been built on the founder’s spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and inventiveness.

This vintage-inspired Pour-Over™ set is an homage to the mid-century Melitta porcelain coffee brewing sets that have become a symbol of good taste. Price: $39.99
