Piston or Filter-press

Period: 1900 - 1930
System: Piston or filter-press
The filter-press preparation system was developed in France in 1852. After the ground coffee has infused in the boiling water for a few minutes the piston with the filter is pushed down towards the bottom of the coffee maker to press the coffee into the base and separate the grounds from the drink.
On the right: Frenchman Louis Forest’s Caféolette in silver-clad brass and wood which became widespread and very popular at the beginning of 1900 for preparing white coffee.
On the left: recent model of French brand Melior, founded in 1930, in Pyrex glass with a stainless steel filter for preparing up to eight cups of coffee.
“What MUMAC means to me is that an 18 year old’s dream which began in a small open air market has come true and still lives on today.”
