The modest coffee pot

There are certain items that are used daily. For me, the coffee pot is certainly one of them. But, we’ve only been drinking coffee, according to one estimate for about five or six centuries. Another dates coffee consumption back to early centuries C.E. Now, more than two billion cups of coffee are consumed each day around the world.

The first at home coffee maker was invented in early in the 20th century, and Mr. Coffee revolutionized the home market with the drip machine.

We often don’t think about how items we use daily had a long journey to arrive in their current iterations. Still, they too have come a long way, and there’s no telling what the next invention to alter daily lives will be, or when it will come along.
