Melitta USA Celebrates Innovation on National Coffee Day

Caramel Macchiato 2

Melitta North America, a brand well-recognized for exceptional quality in all aspects of coffee and coffee preparation, is using National Coffee Day to look back at an extraordinary 109 years of innovation since their founder, Melitta Bentz, invented pour-over coffee.

 

Melitta Bentz pioneered the two-part filtration system now used for drip coffee at her home in Germany in 1908. Since then, millions of people around the world have enjoyed her invention each and every day when preparing their own cup.

 

“National Coffee Day is the perfect time for us to reflect at how far we’ve come since Melitta Bentz invented an entirely new way of brewing coffee,” said Donna Gray, director, public relations, Melitta North America. “Melitta has led the way in coffee innovation for over 100 years. As we release the latest version of her invention, the Signature Series Pour-Over™, we’re incredibly proud of how we’ve been able to continue that spirit of innovation and perfect the hand-crafted coffee experience.”

 

The original pour-over came to life when Melitta Bentz grew tired of the bitter coffee that was full of grounds and prevalent in the early 20th century. Her search for a better coffee experience eventually led her to punch holes in a brass pot, line it with a piece of her son’s notebook paper, and invent the two-part filtration system we use in today’s pour-over and drip coffee worldwide. The company she created with her invention is still committed to that heritage and perfecting the art of pour-over coffee in the home with premium coffee and coffee accessories.

 

“The transformation of the coffee industry has far surpassed anything Melitta Bentz could have imagined when she started this company,” said Chris Hillman, vice president, marketing. “It’s a testament to her ingenuity that coffee aficionados still view the pour-over as the best way of making coffee and it continues to gain popularity among coffee lovers throughout the world.”

For more than 100 years, Melitta has dedicated itself to providing the ultimate coffee experience with its premium line of coffee, coffee filters and high quality coffeemakers, bringing European indulgence to life. The company was founded in 1908 by Melitta Bentz, after receiving a patent for her coffee filtering system consisting of a filter and filtration paper. The filter system was the first to successfully remove coffee residue in the brewing process, revolutionizing the way coffee was made. Melitta North America, Inc., part of the privately held Melitta Group in Minden, Germany, is headquartered in Clearwater, Florida. Melitta USA—a division of Melitta North America—produces coffee and filters in North America and markets the line in the U.S. For more information, visit www.melitta.comand follow the flavor: @MelittaUSA on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

Are you looking to buy a car? Buying a car is not always the easiest thing in the world to do!  Have you thought about looking online? I recently discovered Cars.com and I think it is a great site to check out if you are looking for a Car! There is a wide variety of used cars and the website is really user-friendly.  I like that you can get advice on selling your car and you have to check out the videos and reviews. I found the reviews really helpful! This site has everything from researching the car you want to finding a car dealer in your area.

I also really found “How to Sell Your Used Car” helpful and suggest reading this one on their site! Selling your car is not always as easy as it sounds so I think this advice is really helpful! I especially liked reading about how to write a good ad. So, if you are looking to sell or buy a car, Cars.com is a great resource and I recommend checking them out! I wish I had known about this site before buying my last car but especially before I sold my last car. Selling cars is not an easy task! Cars.com definitely will make it easier!

Perfect Bars are nutritious and delicious!

IMG_7321

“I received the product for free from MomsMeet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided (in products) and this page may contain affiliate links.”

I recently received some nutritious bars called Perfect Bars and I have to admit I wasn’t sure about them. I have tried other nutritious bars and well…thought that they were simply “okay” but were missing something in the taste department. Not so with Perfect Bars…they are a protein bar made with creamy peanut butter, almond butter and cashew butter options. They are a good source of protein but they taste delicious! They stay in the fridge but you can take them on-the-go so they are also great for travel!

IMG_7320

There is a wide variety but my two favorites are the Regular Bars in Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter and the Cashew Blueberry! Yum! They come in Regular Size and the Mini Size. The Mini’s come in  Almond Butter and the Peanut Butter. These didn’t last long at my work! The Mini Bars retail for $1.30 each and the Full-Size Bars are $2.99.

You can find them in more than 12,000 fridges nationwide. Mini’s are only available online at PerfectBar.com or in select retailers.
