The history behind our modern day coffee makers makes for an interesting tale. The origins of coffee date back many centuries and legends abound regarding the origins of coffee. The earliest coffee makers were created by the Turkish and are still used today. These coffee makers are called Cezves, or Turkish Ibriks. It is believed that these early coffee makers were created in the 1500's so you can see that coffee has long been a well-regarded drink for many generations.
Modern day coffee makers vary from the Turkish Ibrik in the fact that the early Turkish Ibrik is used to boil the coffee. Though many still enjoy Turkish coffee and have developed a knack for creating it, many modern day coffee makers don't boil coffee as their means of brewing.
Today coffee makers utilize various methods. These include, percolator, automatic drip, plunger, and espresso makers.
A man named Laurens invented the first coffee maker in the year 1818. He was a metal worker and his coffee maker was the percolating style. Though many cowboys were used to boiling their coffee, they soon took to Mr. Lauren's invention and his first coffee maker was later dubbed, The Cowboy Pot.
Throughout the 1800's many styles of coffee makers began to emerge. These included pressure steamers, glass balloons, grinders and roasters, vacuum coffee makers, and the double- glass- blown Cafetiere.
Until the 1900's coffee paper had not been invented and cloth or linen was used instead. During the year 1912, a German inventor, Frau Benz, created the first paper coffee filter. His wife's name was Milletta and her devoted husband believed that he could create for her a better cup of coffee by using coffee paper filters, instead of the cloth and linen forms.
Milletta coffee is still on the market and you can purchase from a variety of Milletta coffee makers, including the original design, today.
