Melitta Pour Over Cone BrewerMelitta
The precursor to the modern automatic drip coffeemaker, the cone pour-over system was invented by Melitta Bentz in 1908 and is still viewed by many coffee aficionados as the best way to make great coffee. The system is quite simple. A cone-shaped device that resembles the filter holder section of auto-drip machines is placed on top of a mug or carafe. A paper filter is inserted into the cone and coffee is inserted into the filter. Water is then poured over the coffee and the flow of water is regulated by a hole in the bottom of the cone.
