Born more than 100 years ago in 1908 in Dresden, Germany, Melitta was the first coffee specialty brand in the world to invent the "paper drip system. The method of brewing coffee with paper, which is commonplace today, was born from the desire of the company's female founder, Melitta Benz, to "brew better coffee for my family. At the time, ground coffee beans were generally brewed by soaking them in hot water, but Melitta Benz overturned this common practice and established the world's first method of enjoying coffee by filtering it through paper.
