New Flavor-Enhancing Filters

Melitta USA, a manufacturer of branded coffee filters, offers everything coffee drinkers need for a perfect cup, from filters to 100% high grown Arabica bean coffees to coffee makers.

The company recently introduced an innovation on its coffee filters with new patented Flavor Enhancing Micro Perforations. The Super Premium Coffee Filters are available in white and natural brown and in sizes #2, #4 and #6 in 40 and 100-count boxes; retail pricing will be approximately $1.99 to $4.49. The Flavor Enhancing Micro Perforations found in Melitta Super Premium Coffee Filters will be noticeably different, both visibly and tangibly. The design of the perforations allow for a richer coffee flavor while filtering out sediments and impurities. This unique filter process allows for more efficient coffee extraction and a fuller tasting cup of coffee. The new technology is the result of extensive research and development, and the constant search for a better tasting cup of coffee.

“Consumers are passionate about the taste of their coffee and are willing to spend more money on premium coffee and spring water, but if they’re not using premium coffee filters, they are not getting the best flavor the coffee has to offer,” said Patty Poole, product manager, Melitta USA.

“Coffee filters play an integral part in the brewing process, and the Melitta Super Premium Coffee Filters with our newly-patented Flavor Enhancing Micro Perforations provide the best flavor possible,” Poole added. “By relaunching our cone coffee filters with this new product enhancement, we are reinforcing Melitta as the category leader.”
