Melitta USA, Inc. Key Developments

Melitta USA Launches Coffee Filters with New Measure Markings

Melitta USA announced its new premium coffee filters with Measure Markings. The new filters feature unique measure markings – each equivalent to two tablespoons – for easy, consistent filling without the use of a measuring tool. Currently available on Melitta #4 – 40 count white cone filters, the new Measure Markings fit all 8 – 12 cup cone coffee makers. Like all Melitta coffee filters, the 100% biodegradable filters feature double crimped seams and microfine flavor enhancing perforations, which allow the full flavor to filter through – while keeping oils and other impurities out – for a clean-tasting, richer cup of coffee. The actual measure markings are meant to be used as a guideline, filled and adjusted to taste preference. Melitta’s coffee filters with Measure Markings are currently available for purchase at most major grocery retailers and online. MSRP for a 40-count box is $1.99.

Melitta USA Launches Keurig® 2.0® Compatible Single-Serve Coffee

Melitta USA announced that its Melitta Café de Europa gourmet single-serve coffee capsules are now compatible with all Keurig-style machines, including the Keurig® 2.0® brewer. The newly compatible single-serve coffee will be available at retail beginning next month. This new development comes on the heels of a successful 2014 for Melitta. To meet growing consumer demands, Melitta made substantial investments in new machinery, manufacturing processes and people, nearly doubling employment at its Cherry Hill coffee roasting facility. Melitta’s full-bodied, flavorful single-serve capsules are designed to deliver a heightened sensory experience, reminiscent of the drip brewing process. Consumers can actually see and smell their coffee – 100% premium, high-grown Arabica beans, batch-roasted and ground extra fine – from the moment they remove the cup from its individually sealed freshness pack. The unique capsule design is made with a filter, which allows water to fully saturate the grinds for a bolder, richer cup of coffee. Designed with the environment in mind, Melitta’s single-serve coffees are also eco-friendly and 100% recyclable. Melitta’s Café de Europa Single Serve Gourmet Coffee – available in Classique (medium roast), Vienna Roast (dark roast), Blanc et Noir (a blend of light and dark roasts), Espresso Toscana (extra dark roast) and the newest addition to the collection, Classique Decaf (a smooth, balanced, naturally decaffeinated roast) – is currently available for purchase at most major grocery retailers in the Northeast, including Walmart, Shop Rite, Stop & Shop, A&P, Food Emporium, Pathmark, ACME, Fairway and Zabar’s, among many others in the metro areas of Boston, New York City and Philadelphia.
