Gifting is made easy this year with Melitta’s brand-new Signature Series Pour-Over. Celebrate the holidays with this stylish and affordable pour-over for everyone on your list – family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.

If you are a coffee drinker, do you remember the first time you tried coffee?  Did you like it, or has it become it an acquired taste, or must have to give you that much needed boost in the AM to get your day started?  For me, my grandmother turned me on to coffee at early age, along with my brother.  She was Italian and loved baking and feeding us whenever we came to visit.  And, when it came to washing down all her delicious food, she would serve everyone at the table, including the kids her coffee.  She was so proud of this coffee as her cousin would pick her up different coffee blends during her business travels, and bring home for her to make using her Melitta pour over she got as a wedding gift.  I still remember watching her make her coffee, like there was a science behind it. It wasn't until I was older and tried to make my own coffee that I realized that brewing coffee is an art and that if you have the right tools, in my grandmother's case her pour over, that you can make a delicious tasting coffee each and every time.

My grandmother passed away last year, and when my family was cleaning out her house, I asked for a few of her coffee cups and her pour over.  Unfortunately during transit to me, the pour over was broken.  I had planned to replace it, but with the craziness of life, I forgot about this, until I was recently asked to review the new Signature Series Pour-Over from Melitta.  When I saw the email about this pour-over, I couldn't help but smile, as I thought of my grandmother and all the wonderful memories I have of her, and how she was the one to show me the correct way to brew a cup of coffee.  Now with my own Signature Series Pour-Over I can re-create these great tasting coffee memories with my own family, and to serve to family and friends who come to visit.  My grandmother was the entertaining and always said the way to your heart was through your stomach.  She sure did fill us up each and every time we visited her.  What I would give for a plate of her homemade Italian cookies right now, and a hot cup of coffee with milk -- how she made the kids drink their coffee back in the day. :-)  I haven't introduced coffee to my girls, but when they show an interest down the road, I will be sharing with them the proper pour-over brewing process that was explained to me by my dear grandmother.

If you are finding your morning cup of coffee to be lack luster or stale tasting, you may want to reconsider your brewing process.  You don't need an expensive coffee machine to make a great tasting cup of coffee.  Instead, invest in a Signature Series Pour-Over for only $19.99, and be wowed by how great a cup of coffee you make with this easy to use pour over.

Here is more information about the Signature Series Pour-Over from Melitta, including how the pour-over process works...
