Melitta

Legendary German-based coffee filter brand Melitta was founded in 1908 by a housewife named Melitta Bentz in Dresden, Germany. Melitta is credited with inventing the first coffee filter in 1908. This innovative filter design allowed for a larger filtration area, which meant improved extraction. From there, Melitta further improved upon the cone filter and still makes enhancements to it today. Seattle Coffee Gear is proud to offer cone and basket filters from Melitta.
