Melitta North America Builds on Heritage, Launches Signature Series Pour-over™ for the Perfect Cup

CLEARWATER, FL—Melitta North America, a house­hold name in excep­tional coffee prepa­ra­tion, has announced the launch of its Signature Series Pour-Over™ coffeemakers designed for customers in pursuit of a better cup of coffee, in the comfort of their own home.

“As the inventor of the orig­inal Pour-Over™, Melitta North America is excited to intro­duce this new line of Pour-Over™ coffeemakers to coffee lovers throughout North America,” said Chris Hillman, VP of Marketing. “More than a century of research and devel­op­ment have culmi­nated in our Signature Series Pour-Over™ line which combines func­tion and design to deliver brewing simplicity—and, of course, a better cup of coffee.”

Melitta Bentz, the brand’s inno­v­a­tive founder, revo­lu­tion­ized the world of coffee in 1908 when she took a brass pot from her kitchen, punched holes in it and used a piece of paper from her son’s note­book to create the very first Pour-Over™—the precursor to the modern day Pour-Over™.

“It’s Melitta Bentz’ legacy that we’re building on,” said Hillman. “Her iconic Pour-Over concept still gives our customers the simplest way to enjoy hand­crafted coffee at home, elim­i­nating the guess­work and mini­mizing the cleanup. Our Signature Series Pour-Over™ is the best option for customers looking for flavorful, gourmet brewing at home without bitter­ness or mess.”

The Signature Series Pour-Over™ brews a single cup of hand­crafted coffee in three simple, effi­cient steps:
1. Place the Melitta Pour-Over™ cone on top of your favorite mug and insert Melitta paper filter.
2. Scoop in your favorite fresh ground coffee to taste.
3. Pour hot water (just off the boil) into the cone, fully satu­rating all the grounds.

Then, just sip, smile and enjoy the pure flavor of hand­crafted coffee.

All of Melitta’s Signature Series Pour-Over™ coffeemakers feature a func­tional design opti­mized to ensure consis­tent brewing results. Two viewing windows provide visi­bility into the mug preventing unnec­es­sary messes.

The Melitta Pour-Over™ line will have a starting MSRP of $19.99 and will be avail­able in depart­ment and specialty retailers begin­ning in Fall of 2017.
