Amalie Auguste Melitta Bentz was a German housewife and entrepreneur who invented the coffee filter in 1908. She was dissatisfied with the quality of coffee percolators produced as well as the fact that espresso makers from that time period left grounds in the coffee. So she fashioned a filter to hold back the grounds using a sheet of blotting paper and placed the paper into a brass pot that had a hole in the bottom. The resulting brewed coffee was popular enough she decided to create a business around it. She received a patent for her device and hired a tinsmith to handle production. Mrs Bentz’s husband and sons were her company’s first employees.
