  • Coffee Percolator Research Paper

    The coffee percolator is known as one of the earliest "modern" coffee-brewing tools, that was originally intended for small scale homes that could be heated on a stove or any other hear source (Meister, Erin). This type of coffee pot was very popular before the invention of the automatic drip coffee makers which was around the 1970s (Coffee Percolator Explained). It has been said, according to Erin Meister, that the percolator was and is the beginning for more brewing techniques that have been created whether it be in the past or upcoming years. There are many credited inventors, but the man who patented the modern United States percolator known today is Hanson Goodrich; he patented it on August 16th, 1889 (Coffee Percolator Explained). The invention of the coffee percolator was what led to the advances and creations of modern coffee brewing systems that are known to people today. Like most inventions, there are multiple inventors from around the world that are credited to the creation of the percolator, some of which have patented their inventions. The man who is said to have "patented the first true percolator" according to Erin Meister is Hanson Goodrich. Hanson Goodrich spent his entire life in Illinois; he was born September 22, 1836 in Burnt Prairie, White Co., IL and died January 16, 1908 in McLeansboro, IL (Voss, Veronica).

If Beowulf is a true hero he would do what is best for his people, not what is best for his ego. Also as he takes his last breathes he is…
