A coffee filter is a coffee-brewing utensil, usually made of disposable paper, but recently stainless steel. The stainless steel version is used to prepare filter coffee, the form of coffee common in India.
Additional recommended knowledge
In 1908, the first paper coffee filter was created by Melitta Bentz in Dresden, Germany. She wanted to remove the bitter taste caused by boiling loose grounds or using the typical method of linen to brew coffee.
She thought that if she could pour boiling water over the grounds, but filter them out, the bitterness would be reduced. She used her son’s blotting paper. Bentz and her husband started the Melitta Bentz Company to manufacture filters.
