Melita, the creator of paper drip

Nowadays, the main method of hand dripping that comes to mind is "paper filter".

Melita is said to have created this extraction method.
I think there are many people who use this dripper.

This time I would like to tell you about Melita Dripper.

The creator of paper drip

Melita, which was born in Dresden, Germany in 1908 over 100 years ago, is said to have devised the world's first "paper drip system."

Nowadays, we take it for granted that coffee is extracted using paper, but back then it was common to soak ground coffee beans in hot water.

The current style was born from the desire of the female founder, Melita Benz, to ``brew delicious coffee for her family.''

Since then, Melita has developed a variety of solutions, including unique single-hole filters, patented filter paper, and fully automatic professional coffee machines in prestigious, first-class facilities.

Today, it is a brand loved by people in more than 150 countries around the world.

For those who want to enjoy a stable and strong taste

The feature of Melita dripper is that it can extract a stable and strong taste.

This dripper is recommended for those who want to bring out the full flavor or those who like a strong taste.

Now, let's take a look at the actual structure of the Melita dripper.

Size and number of holes

The first thing to consider is the size and number of holes.

The bottom of the Melita dripper has a smaller hole than a regular dripper, and there is only one hole.

If the holes are small and there are few, the flow of hot water will be slower than with other drippers, so it will take longer to extract and it will be easier to finish with a strong flavor.

stand type

The Melita dripper is trapezoidal in shape.

Trapezoidal drippers tend to collect hot water more easily at the bottom than conical drippers.
Because hot water collects at the bottom, the brewing time is longer and the coffee tends to have a stronger flavor.
Melita dripper has a structure that makes it easy to extract a strong taste, so even if you are using it for the first time, it is a dripper that is easy to extract a stable taste.

This dripper is recommended for those who want to start drip coffee, and also for those who usually use hand drip coffee and like strong-tasting coffee.

I think it's fun to use different drippers depending on your mood and brand of the day, so please give it a try!
