Melitta Coffee And The Melitta Coffee Maker Are Named After Melitta Bentz, A German Housewife

Melitta Coffee

Melitta's US headquarters are located in Florida, and they are part of the Melitta Group of Minden, Germany. Their coffee roastery is in New Jersey. Melitta coffee is a well-known brand today. Melitta is named after Melitta Bentz, a German housewife who, in 1908, revolutionized how we make coffee. One day, in the hopes of reducing the sediment in her coffee, she punctured holes in the bottom of a brass pot, and lined the pot with a sheet of her son's blotting paper. The coffee she poured in strained through very well, giving her a wonderful cup of coffee with no sediment. In July of that same year, Melitta received a patent on her "filter top device lined with filter paper." She was soon in business, and Melitta the coffee company was born.

Today, Melitta continues to make coffee filters, and specializes in gourmet coffee in both ground and whole bean. Melitta coffee makers are also extremely well-known among coffee connoisseurs.

Whole Bean Coffees

Melitta's whole bean selection of coffee includes a Kona Blend from Hawaii, 100% Columbian, which makes a deep, rich and robust coffee and Hazelnut, which offers a delightful mixture of coffee's richness with a touch of hazelnut.

Ground Coffees

Melitta coffee is available in many different varieties already ground. Their Classic Roast is made of 100% Arabica beans, and has been a household favorite for over 25 years. It is also available decaffeinated. If you prefer ultra-dark, rich, full-bodied coffee, try their 100% Columbian coffee... it was judged "America's Best" by the American Tasting Institute.

Melitta's Classic Lite is perfect for coffee drinkers who love the rich flavor of coffee, but are sensitive to caffeine and acidity. Classic Lite features 40% less caffeine, and 45% less acidity.

Hazelnut features a delicate aroma, and a rich, mellow nutty flavor. A perfect dessert coffee, it is a sweet reward anytime. Vanilla Almond is another flavored coffee. Blending creamy vanilla with almond's nutty flavor creates a very special coffee with complex flavors.

Lawa'i Estate is an exotic Hawaiian coffee from Kauai. Smooth and balanced, it will give the flavor of the islands. Chucaras Springs Estate is a rich, strong coffee from Costa Rica... truly unique flavors that you can only get from Central America. Villa Luz Estate is from Columbia, one of the world's greatest coffee growing regions. Villa Luz grows a truly superior coffee.

If you enjoy different coffees throughout the day, you may enjoy this trio. Morning Bliss Organic is a light roast with a bright, smooth character. Enchanting Evening Organic is a dark roast featuring a deep flavor with a little hint of smokiness. Finally, Sun and Moon Organic is a unique blend of light and dark roasts, creating a complex coffee that is bold and rich, finishing intensely.

Melitta makes a single serving coffee maker, the One:One. Melitta's coffee maker is made to take their Javapods and make a single cup of incredible coffee. Each cup is freshly made, and you never need to finish the pot before you make another again.
