About french presses
According to some reports, the first machines for brewing coffee under pressure, were invented back in 1840. However, then they did not win due popularity. Whether this was due to the fact that the press missed small pieces of coffee or simply its time had not yet arrived, no one knows. The world found out about the french press only thanks to the designer from Milan, Mr. Kallimani. It was he who, at the beginning of the 20th century, invented and patented a piston machine for making coffee under pressure. And in 1929, the French company Melion acquired the rights to manufacture it. That's where the name of the French press came from, or the French press.
