Melitta Pour-Over Bar

Melitta’s Stainless Steel 2 Station Pour-Over Bar

Description: The hottest trend in gourmet coffee? The pour-over. It’s not a new way of making coffee, but rather a time-tested method gaining newfound appreciation. Dating back to Melitta Bentz, who in 1908 invented the two-part filter system, hand-crafting of coffee in a simplistic way creates a bright, clean cup of coffee. Preparation consists of a cone, lined with a coffee filter and filled with ground coffee, sitting atop a coffee cup. Water is slowly poured by hand over the grounds and delicious, fresh coffee drips into the cup below. As an elegant, yet equally convenient alternative to Melitta’s Ready Set Joe (a superior way to brew coffee for those who savor coffee’s flavor one cup at a time), Melitta offers several new items in its line-up of pour-overs. The stylish Stainless Steel 3 Station and 4 Station Pour-Over Bars are perfect for larger quantities of handmade coffee. For dinner parties and book club gatherings, they make for an impressive presentation. For more informal, intimate get-togethers, the Stainless Steel 2 Station Pour-Over Bar is ideal. Melitta’s Stainless Steel Pour-Over Bars retail for $200.00 (2 Station), $275.00 (3 Station) and $330.00 (4 Station).
