Transcript of The Innovation of The Coffee Maker

by Kaitlyn and Alex The Coffee Maker The First Coffee Maker Invented on December 26, 1865 by James H. Mason coffee percolator The First Drip Coffee Maker Invented by Melitta Bentz in 1908 Used a filter made of blotting paper Melitta Bentz Drip coffee maker In 1908, the coffee filter and filter paper were patented The Melitta Bentz Company patented the filter bag in 1937 and also the vacuumpacking in 1962. James H. Mason Current Patents How A Percolator Works A pot full of water is placed on a stove burner. When the water is boiled, it condenses to the top of the pot and drips through a strainer basket where the coffee is held. The Melitta filter is a plastic cone with several holes in the bottom, that holds the coffee filter full of coffee. Improvements In 1979, the drip coffee maker underwent improvements such as adding a timer. The reason for a coffee maker is so it's fast and easy for the customer to use. Adding the timer made certain that the coffee would be brewed quickly. Another improvement was made in 1989, by allowing 4 cups of coffee to be made in one brew. Today, companies like Keurig base the consumption of coffee off of one cup and it can brew almost instantly. Reason for improvements: To save TIME! Who Uses the Coffee Maker? Since improvements have been made to the coffee maker, it has allowed everyone in society to have access to coffee. The quick brew makes it easy to grab a cup of coffee and go in a matter of minutes. Not only has the coffee maker made it available to society as a whole, but businesses have grown and developed and become extremely successful, such as Starbucks. With quick and efficient coffee makers, and coffee shops on almost every corner, the target audience is anyone who loves coffee.
