Evolution of the Home Coffee Makers

Feb 29, 2012|

It is amazing to think that 60 years ago the world did not have the internet, smart phones, wi-fi, Facebook, flat screen televisions or... home coffee makers!  In the 1950s and 1960s people brewed coffee at home with a percolator. Today there are numerous ways to brew from drip coffeemakers to single-serve brewers to French press.  To help you see where home coffee brewing has from here is a time line of the evolution.  Of course we've incorporated BUNN home brewer evolutions to the list.
