If I drink coffee, I always make it in a Melitta cone. I have two--one is a cheap plastic one and the one I usually use is ceramic. We used to use them at work too instead of having a great big coffee machine.

I just heat the water in a tea kettle and pour away. Makes good coffee and no coffee machine to clean. Neat and simple. They're trendy now????

And if the power goes out during a hurricane you can put the kettle on the Bar-B-Q and still have your morning coffee.

One can still buy Melitta on Amazon. but it's twice as expensive as it was a few years ago. Seattle's Best is a reasonable substitute. I like good coffee, but I'm not paying Starbuck prices.

They don't carry it often but sometimes Melitta is available at the tjmax, homegoods or marshall stores if you have any of those around by you. You might get lucky during the holidays and find it there.

Thatís a surprise to me too. Iíve used a Melitta cone nearly every day since 1987, and no oneís ever accused me of being trendy.

The whole get up for coffee came in pastel colors and also in toy size for the next generation.

WallyWorld, Amazon, ... almost every grocery store carries the coffee and filters.

I remember this brand very well. What I remember about Melitta is that they either gave away or had practically free coffee pots and I got one of them and it was a piece of crap. Didn't work well at all.

Neither, really. My point was to share an interesting story about its history, but it looks to me as if no one bothered to read it.

We have a couple of the cone/mug sets. They're perfect for those times when you want a single cup. I've never tried Melitta coffee, though.
