Founded in 1908 by Melitta Bentz in Germany, Melitta specializes in products such as coffee filters, filter paper, descaler and more. It was a housewife named Melitta Bentz, from Dresden, who tried to filter her coffee by drilling holes in a coffee utensil. Not having liked her extraction, she starts again and this time with paper. This is how the coffee filter is born! Thank you Melitta.
