-The Coffee Maker
by: Kelvin Ramos & Jaz Camacho
The History of the Coffee Maker
Began when the Turks started brewing coffee ("coffee cherries") in a pot over a fire, creating the first Coffee Maker between 0575-0579 A.D. Much of the history of the coffee maker had been lost, so no one knows the history of the coffee maker from the time of the Turks to 1818, when the first coffee percolator was actually created.
The history of the coffee maker in modern times began in France, with a device called a biggin, the first drip coffee. Another French inventor invented the pumping percolator at the same time. In 1840, the Napier Vacuum Machine came along. At the time, it was complex to use but made an amazingly clear pot of coffee, which was prized by coffee lovers. Vacuum coffee makers continue to be popular.The electric coffee percolator, eclipsed by the automatic drip coffee maker also made history. And in the mid 1800s, the first electric percolators were big with consumers, making it easy to make a lot of coffee without dealing with the stove. Today's percolators, still part of the history of the coffee maker, don't look much different from the originals. Of course, the history of the coffee maker changed forever in 1972. Mr. Coffee, the first commercially successful automatic drip coffee maker came on the scene, revolutionizing the way we drink coffee and changing the history of the coffee maker forever.
Improvements of the Coffee Maker
Making coffee has improved tremendously over the years originally requiring materials such as metal, silver, bronze, brass, glass and plastic.
Have a layout placing the pot over a heat source like a stove, forcing boiling water and the steam to rise into the upper chamber where the coffee grounds are. Causing the water to drip through the coffee back into the pot again.
Look like having two pots on top of another, facing neck to neck and has water is heating from the bottom chamber until pressure forces it to rise and mix with the ground coffee at the top. After few minutes of mixing, the maker is removed from the heat causing a vacuum like effect in the lower pot. Coffee is made when water is mixed with the ground beans and flows back into the bottom pot.
The modern coffee machines in the market make drinking coffee more enjoyable with features like hassle-free coffee brewing, built-in auto off features, programmable coffee cup sizes and so many more. Aesthetic enhancements are also considered to suit the different taste of consumers and their kitchens. It's uncommon to see bold colors like red or blue in the market, preferably keeping the traditional black or silver.
Throughout the years, coffee makers have can be seen in more households. Many people prefer to enjoy a cup with the familiar favor and the way they make it in their homes.
Conclusion Question Answers
1. The difference of Invention and Innovation is that “invention“ can be defined as the creation of a product or introduction of a process for the first time. “Innovation,” on the other hand, occurs if someone improves on or makes a significant contribution to an existing product, process or service.
2. The major factors that contributed towards the Coffee Maker was its shape of the coffee maker its self, the process of brewing, steaming, heating, energy strength and serving. The product was influenced by these factors as well as the use of technology and easier access for user in need of making the Coffee.
3. The pace of the development of the Coffee Maker has quickly changed in history for the consumer and their desires of making more coffee preferable and easier.
4. The possible future innovations that could be changed in the present Coffee Maker are choosing the temperature of thel coffee from hot, cold and medium in the machine.
The coffee percolator is a type of pot used to brew coffee by continuously cycling the boiling water through the coffee grounds until it is the strength you desire.
Melitta Coffee Filter Paper
Melitta Bentz invents the first coffee maker with a filter constructed out of blotting paper, rather than expensive linen and cloths filters that were used previously.
French Press Brewer
A French Press Brewer places coffee grounds, and boils water into the container. After the brewing process, you push a "plunger" into the container, which is attached to a mesh screen pushing grounds to the bottom and holds it down. This way, when you pour the coffee you don't get the grounds too. This coffee maker is still being used.
Pump Espresso Machine
Invented by Faema. This machine used a motor-driven pump, rather than manual force, to brew the beverage.
Automatic Drip Coffee Maker
Invented by Mr. Coffee. This machine automatically heats the water and gets poured in with the coffee beans and brews. It also keeps the coffee heated. These used to be solely for restaurants but now they are commonly used in homes.
The K-Cup System
The K-Cup was invented by Keurig and was a groundbreaking invention. K-Cups are small cups filled with the grounds of various beverages like coffee, tea and hot chocolate. The K-Cup system has a spot where you place these cups, and when you close it, it pierces a hole all the way through the cup and and you pour water in which goes through these cups filled with grounds and into your mug below.
Timeline of the Coffee Maker
Vacuum Coffee Maker
Invented by Loef of Berlin. In this Vacuum coffee maker, water is heated, creating steam which rises into the higher chamber to coffee beans. The heat is then removed and the steam condenses to form a vacuum, which pulls coffee through the filter into a lower chamber.
First Espresso Machine
An espresso machine is forcing hot pressurized water through a ground coffee and a filter. The result is thick, concentrated coffee. It was invented and pantented by Angelo Moriondo.
French Drip Pot
A filter filled with roasted coffee beans sits in a container. Hot water is poured in the filter, absorbs its "oils and essences" and then drips into the container below.
In France, they discovered infusion brewing, were you place coffee beans inside a cloth bag and then submerge the bag into hot water.
The Turks invent coffee in a pot.
The turks cooked "coffee cherries" in a pot over a fire, creating the first coffee maker.
Temperature Control System- Lets customers and consumers to pick how hot they want their coffee.
Strength Control System- Coffee Maker has a natural chemical energizer that makes strong coffee at multiple levels for people to selectively choose from depending on how fast and long they want to wake up and be energized.
