There is a great dividing year in the history of coffee in America, and it is 1972. Before it, the percolator. After, automatic drip.
One of the co-inventors of the home drip coffeemaker died this month at the age of 89. Samuel Glazer and Vincent Marotta Sr. were partners in Cleveland, Ohio who had the Mr. Coffee coffeemaker engineered and built. The machine they made changed the way America woke up each morning. Mr Sam passed away on March 11. Thanks to both of them for making my life better…I remember how bad coffee used to be.
